Plan is a reflection of Trump's narcissism

Reader comment on item: Reservations about the Trump Peace Plan

Submitted by Dave (United States), Jan 31, 2020 at 11:23

Trump' foreign policy priority: What will it do for me?
That's why he withheld vital military assistance from Ukraine pending exposure of Biden's nepotism.
That's why he suddenly pulled the plug on the Kurds in Syria and green-lighted Erdogan's aggression, since helping the Kurds would have done nothing for him. (Most Americans probably associate the Kurds with Little Miss Muffet).
That's why he does nothing to limit Turkish aggression in the Med directed at Greece and Cyprus since there's no immediate payback on a relatively obscure, but important, matter.
That's why he panders to North Korea's Kim, because that's how he naively thinks that he can halt the nukes and show up his predecessors.
That's why he was finally tough on Iran - his prior inaction was getting very unpopular.
Finally, solving the hitherto intractable Israeli-Palestinian conflict will show that he actually has all those unique talents that he has been touting all along. I wish him luck!
Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who's the greatest President of all? Good thing Cinderella is out of office.
