President Donald Trump’s foreign policy has brought up several responses even from the prominent members of the republican party After alienating our European allies through a series of boorish actions and moronic comments during his recent undiplomatic visit with NATO leaders, Trump seems dead set on abdicating America’s traditional role as leader of the free world.
It’s gotten so bad that even members of his own party have begun to acknowledge that things were much, much better under President Obama.
Even worse was the response of Senator John McCain to Trump’s public dispute with London Mayor Sadiq Khan in the aftermath of the terror attacks last week on the London Bridge.
When asked by The Guardian what message Trump had sent to the UK, one of our most committed allies, by his tweets which distorted the remarks of Europe’s first Muslim mayor of a major city and twisted them into a defense of his unconstitutional travel ban, McCain ansered in a way that was sure to raise every hackle on Trump’s ample body:
“What do you think the message is? The message is that America doesn’t want to lead,” McCain said, while adding of the rest of the world: “They are not sure of American leadership, whether it be in Siberia or whether it be in Antarctica.”
Asked if America’s standing on the global stage was better under Barack Obama, McCain, a fervent critic of the previous administration’s foreign policy, responded: “As far as American leadership is concerned, yes.”
Nothing could be more devastating to President Trump than hearing a respected fellow Republican compare him negatively to his close enemy.
Unfortunately, even the most loyal members of the Republican party are criticizing Trump’s policies. Do you think Rump should reconsider his relationship with his fellow republicans?
