in response to reader comment: From Israel about Trump

We can presume from both arguments that this observer's view of the former 45th American Chief Executive is still intact; that very few people really understand how Donald J Trump arrived, circled and left multiple reasons of why his legacy will never be understood, let alone being appreciated for the various effects on not merely the American pursuits of freedom of certain liberties, but of how American life will never be the same again. To that extent, the buck really did stop at his desk. The difference is that now his name has been removed from the oval office, how does he still get the blame when from the beginning, his successor erased (or so he thought) all of the legacy actions by the stroke of a pen (and not an aneurysm) to change things into a progressive democratic agenda, and not the former 45th president's. If the current occupant of the Oval office would surrender to the evidence, he would admit the ravages America is now facing are no longer Presdient Trump's to fix.
The greatest threat is not merely the Iranian Islamic Regime's nuclear ambitions, but the other actors in the region also; for therein lays the conspiracy and defending Israel. President Trump did, indeed, help set that up. Now America is on the hot seat; but the question is: does the 46th American Administrative know what to protect against that does not end in complete tragedy? Do the Israeli's in charge now know what to do?
It is likely Presidetn Trump will NOT return; his legacy is written in past terms and the future that is being driven does not conform to a return of any of his former polcies; they can't because he will not be leading them. But therein lays the next conundrum for American/Israeli cooperation: which policies does one follow when there appears to be limited leadership and no one knows what to agree to? Actually, the Tanakh does provide a clue: but who is following that? Anyone?
