After a very rough week, President Trump received some a most unlikely place…the media. USA Today wrote an article stating that the Presidents foreign policy is “going surprisingly well.” At first, the paper suggested Trump should receive no quarter for his “tirades” and attacks on the media.
High praise was given to President Trump for appointing his new national security adviser Army Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster. It was a highly praised pick and honestly, one President Trump should have picked instead of being loyal to Micheal Flynn.
Second, they praised the Trump envoy to the far east saying that the Administration has strengthened ties S. Korea, Japan, and still putting pressure on China. The administration view on “One China” relaxed many that thought the President would push the US into a war with China over Taiwan.
In the Middle-East USA Today wrote:
Trump has also sought to reassure U.S. allies, including both Israel and key Arab states, who had strained relations with President Obama, especially over the Iran nuclear deal. In his meetings with Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu and Saudi King Salman, Trump dampened expectations that the United States would walk away from the agreement by instead emphasizing the need for much more stringent verification of Tehran’s compliance.
Moreover, like all his predecessors, Trump is being drawn into the Arab-Israeli peace-making vortex. Both King Salman, in his phone call with Trump, and Jordanian King Abdullah in his face-to-face meeting with the president almost certainly pushed him to restart diplomacy between Israel and the Palestinians. After the president briefly challenged the need for a two-state solution, Nikki Haley, our ambassador to the United Nations, clarified that such a policy was indeed still supported by America.
All in all, it was a very honest piece and the link is below if you wish to read it. What do you think?
