North Korea is on a suicide mission, with “Rocket Man” steering it down a path to its total destruction. Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran is unacceptably –- even embarrassingly –- one-sided, perhaps the worst deal we’ve ever made, and America is prepared to walk away. Socialism failed in Venezuela not because it wasn’t done right, but because it was done precisely as socialism intends. And as long as Trump is President, he will defend America’s interests above all else, just as other leaders should do what is in their own countries' interest.
How great to hear these hard truths expressed to the United Nations General Assembly by the President of the United States. All the years of platitudes and insincere diplo-speak from that podium have done essentially nothing to bring peace to hotbeds of terrorism and aggression around the world. To borrow a phrase from another, similarly turbulent era, President Trump has the courage to “tell it like it is.” His speech was a badly needed dose of reality.
Like Benjamin Netanyahu, who has praised the speech, Trump has shown the courage of a real leader before the rest of the world.
Trump brought no apologies on behalf of America, or himself. He doesn’t care if this audience likes him or not, only that it respects America’s strength and takes him at his word. (He paused only a few times during the speech, perhaps because he wasn’t there to deliver applause lines.) He doesn’t play “Mother, May I?” with this group. He had a message to deliver, he did so with forcefulness and clarity, and he meant it. Bests of all, he reset America’s role at the UN, and in a positive, productive way; he reminded his audience what they were supposed to be and said, ‘now, let’s be that.’
