By any measure, Trump’s foreign policy achievements are immense. No new wars, withdrawal of troops, historic peace deals between OAE and Israel, Bahrein and Israel, Serbia and Kosovo. Is Kuwait next? OMG, I can’t even.
Even Obama’s admirers will agree that his foreign policy was a disaster. Of course, it looked better than the absolutely horrid actions of his predecessor but now that we have Trump’s truly amazing foreign policy team, one has got to ask what prevented Obama from finding a few advisers who wouldn’t be deranged war hawks and bumbling idiots.
What’s funny, though, is that people confuse outward appearances of individuals with policy. Obama looked cool and paid lip service to unity, so nobody pays attention to the destruction of whole countries that he’s personally responsible for. Trump sends mean tweets, so nobody notices that he’s the most peacenik, non-aggressive, “peace, love, bubble gum” president we’ve had in decades.
