Ignatius: President Donald Trump Becoming Credible Foreign Policy Leader | Morning Joe | MSNBC


THANK YOU ROB REINER.
WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH BEING SEXY.
>>A NEW POLL THIS MORNING. OH, GOOD, MY DAUGHTER IS AWAKE.
>>THEY ALWAYS TEXTALITY 6:01. >>>.
>>A NEW POLL GIVES VOTERS LATEST OPINIONS OF THE TRUMP
PRESIDENCY. NEARLY A WEEK AFTER THE MILITARY
SYKES IN SYRIA, HIS APPROVAL RATING IS 39%, UP ONE POINT FROM
LATE MARCH WHILE THE PERCENTAGE OF THOSE WHO DISAPPROVE IS DOWN
TWO POINTS TO 49%. 56% OF AMERICANS FAVOR LIMITED
U.S. STRIKES ON MILITARY TARGETS IN SYRIA.
59% DON’T BELIEVE PRESIDENT TRUMP KNOWS WHAT HE WANTS TO
UNITED STATES TO DO THERE. 39% BELIEVES HE MAKES A PLAN.
49% DISAPPROVE OF HOW HE’S HANDLING FOREIGN POLICY, A 7%
APPROVAL FROM FEBRUARY. 40% OF AMERICANS SAY HE’S
STRENGTHENING THE U.S. ON THE WORLD STANL, UP FIVE POINTS.
49% SAY HE IS WEAKENING THE U.S. WHICH HAS FALLEN FROM 56%
EARLIER. HOWEVER, ONLY 42% HAVE TRUST IN
HIM TO MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION IN AN INTERNATIONAL CRISIS.
55% DO NOT. 39% TRUST HIM TO WEIGH ALL THE
OPTIONS BEFORE ACTING DURING A CRISIS.
58% DO NOT. >>THERE HAS BEEN OBVIOUSLY —
IT’S SAFE TO SAY WE’RE IN A PERIOD OF TRANSITION.
>>YOU CAN SEE THAT IN THOSE NUMBERS.
>>SOMETIMES THEY’RE LEADING INDICATORS, SOMETIMES THEY’RE
NOT. THE GALLUP POLL HAS TRUMP UP
FIVE POINTS OVER THE LAST WEEK. NOT AS MUCH MOVE IN THE MARIS
POLL. OBVIOUSLY A LOT OF PEOPLE, MARK
HALPERIN, STILL WAITING AND SEEING HOW THIS TURNS OUT.
>>THIS POLL IS IN LINE WITH MOST OF THE OTHERS.
THE EVENTS OF THE LAST WEEK, AS MUCH AS THEY’VE GOTTEN ACCLAIM
ON FOREIGN POLICY DIDN’T REVOLUTIONIZE WHAT PEOPLE THINK
OF THE PRESIDENT. I THINK IT WILL REENFORCE FOR
THE WHITE HOUSE WHAT DAVID WROTE IN HIS COLUMN, AS HE MOVES TO BE
A MORE ESTABLISHMENT FIGURE AT LEAST ON FOREIGN POLICY, DOES HE
SEE POSITIVE REENFORCEMENT AND CONTINUE IN THAT DIRECTION, AND
DOES HE EXTEND THAT WHEN CONGRESS COMES BACK TO THINGS
LIKE HEALTH CARE OR TAX REFORM. >>DAVID IGNATIUS YOU WRITE THIS
CALLED “TRUMP GETS A TASTE OF SUCCESS.”
TRUMP IS MAKING GAINS BECAUSE HE’S ASSEMBLED A COMPETENT
NATIONAL SECURITY TEAM AND LISTENS TO ITS ADVICE.
THERE WAS A CONSENSUS AMONG HIS TOP ADVISERS FOR A QUICK,
LIMITED STRIKE ON A SYRIAN AIR BASE AND TRUMP TOOK THE
RECOMMENDATION. HE DIDN’T AMPLIFY, AUGMENT OR
OTHERWISE DISRUPT WITH HIS OWN TWEETS.
HE ALLOWED THE PROCESS TO WORK. IF TRUMP GOES BACK TO HIS FREE
WHEELING, TWEETER-IN-CHIEF ROLE OR IF THE DISRUPTIVE WOULD-BE
STRATEGIST STEPHEN BANNON REGAINS INFLUENCE, OVER THE PAST
WEEK TRUMP ADOPTED A DIFFERENT APPROACH, MORE CAREFUL AND
CONSENSUAL. IT BRINGS HIM CLOSER TO THE
FOREIGN POLICY MAINSTREAM THAT HE BE RIDED DURING THE CAMPAIGN.
BUT IT ALSO GIVES LIMB A TASTE OF THE SUCCESS HE CRAVES.
SO WELL PUT. >>PEOPLE SAY WHAT DO YOU THINK
OF ALL OF THESE CHANGES, OH, I’M SHOCKED.
IT’S LIKE HAVING SOMEBODY TO INVEST YOUR MONEY IN THE STOCK
MARKET AND THEY’VE LOST YOUR MONEY FOR THE PAST 60 DAYS AND
SUDDENLY THEY START MAKING GREAT INVESTMENTS.
I’M NOT GOING TO CRITICIZE THAT. WE’VE ALL PREPARED FOR TRUMP THE
DISASTER.
HOW DO YOU HANDLE TRUMP THE SUCCESS IF WE KEEP MOVING IN
THIS DIRECTION? >>WELL, WE’LL SEE.
I THINK THE PUBLIC IS RIGHT TO BE SKEPTICAL.
THOSE NUMBERS WERE INTERESTING, GREATER SUPPORT BUT STILL A LOT
OF MISS GAVE VINGS REFLECTED IN THOSE NUMBERS.
IT’S CLEAR TO ME THAT TRUMP HAS BONDED WITH THIS CORE GROUP.
YOU LIST HIS SECRETARY OF DEFENSE JIM MATTIS, SECRETARY OF
STATE REX TILLERSON, CERTAINLY HIS SON-IN-LAW JARED KUSHNER AS
A KIND OF IN-HOUSE WHISPERER TO THE PRESIDENT.
YOU LIST THE NEW DEPUTY NATIONAL SECURITY ADVISER DINA POWELL AND
HER BOSS, H.R. McMASTER. WHEN YOU HAVE A CRISIS AND DO
WELL AT SOLVING IT, THERE’S SOMETHING THAT HAPPENS.
WE ALL KNOW THAT. YOU BOND WITH THE PEOPLE YOU’RE
WITH. WE CAN DO THIS.
THAT’S WHAT WE’VE BEEN WATCHING OVER THE LAST WEEK.
THEY COULD STILL UNRAVEL. THE BANNON ISSUE IS UNRESOLVED.
THEY’VE GOT TO GET THAT SORTED OUT.
THE PRESIDENT COULD COME BACK TO BE BEING THE DISRUPP TORE.
SOMETHING GOES WRONG, HE HAS SURPRISES, REACTS — DOUBLES
DOWN — >>TOMORROW IS SATURDAY MORNING.
YOU NEVER KNOW. >>WHEN HE GETS UP IN THE
MORNING, IT’S A NEW MORNING. >>BUT HE’S READING COLUMNS LIKE
THIS. >>HE’S GETTING APPROVAL.
HE IS ON ONE LEVEL THE KING OF THE FLIP-FLOP YOU HAVE TO SAY.
HIS POSITIONS ON KEY ISSUES ARER RADICALLY DIFFERENT FROM WHAT
THEY WERE DURING THE CAMPAIGN. BUT HE’S ALSO BECOMING A
CREDIBLE LEADER IN FOREIGN POLICY WITH A STRONG TEAM AND I
WOULD SAY SOME REAL SUCCESSES. >>HE ALSO — IT’S VERY
INTERESTING WITH RUSSIA. DAVID, YOU SAID EARLY ON WHEN
TRUMP TOOK THE CALL FROM THE TAIWANESE LEADER, THROWING CHINA
OFF IS NOT THE WORST THING IN THE WORLD.
THEY’RE ALWAYS THROWING US A BIT OFF.
I THINK TRUMP PROVED, YOU WRITE BY A VERY POSITIVE MEETING WITH
THE CHINESE THAT CAME OVER. THEY GET TO GO BACK AND SAY WE
SAT DOWN WITH THIS GUY THAT WAS TALKING TO TAIWAN.
RUSSIA, WE’RE HEARING THE SAME THING ABOUT RUSSIA, AMBASSADOR
McFAUL SAID, VLADIMIR PUTIN THOUGHT HE HAD — JULIE IN THE
ATLANTIC WRIEGTS, THE AMERICAN AIR STRIKE ON THE AIR BASE IN
SYRIA DIDN’T DO THAT MUCH. A DAY AND 59 TOMAHAWK MISSILES
LATER, ASSAD IS STILL IN POWER, PLANES STILL TAKING OFF, STILL
FLYING, STILL DROPPING BOMBS AND KILLING PEOPLE IN THE SAME
PROVINCE WHERE THE GAS ATTACK KILLED PEOPLE LAST WEEK.
WHAT THE STRIKE DID DO WAS RADICALLY ALTER THE POWER
DYNAMIC BETWEEN MOSCOW AND WASHINGTON THAT PUTIN SPENT THE
LAST THREE YEARS ESTABLISHING, ONE IN WHICH PUTIN ACTS AND
WASHINGTON GOSH SMACKED SCRAMBLES TO REACT.
IT’S PUTIN AND HIS GOVERNMENT THAT IS REACTING.
HE’S LEARNING THE SAME EXACT THING THAT JEB BUSH AND MARCO
RUB YOU AND TED CRUZ AND ALL OF THOSE PEOPLE THAT THOUGHT THEY
WERE SO MUCH SMARTER THAN DUMB DONALD TRUMP LEARNED IN THE
CAMPAIGN. >>SOMEBODY IN THE WHITE HOUSE
SAID TO ME OVER THIS LAST WEEK, SO THE RUSSIANS ARE CATCHING FOR
A CHANGE RATHER THAN PITCHING. THE RUSSIANS HAVE BEEN PITCHING,
CALLING THE SHOTS. NOW THEY’RE HAVING TO REACT TO
U.S. POLICY. THAT’S PRECISELY WHAT TRUMP
WANTED AND I THINK IT HAS REAL BENEFITS.
I JUST WOULD STRESS ON CHINA, THE FACT IS THAT TRUMP HAD TO
PAY THE TICKET OF ADMISSION. TRUMP STARTED OFF DESTABILIZING,
I’M GOING TO REVISIT THE TAIWAN ISSUE.
THE CHINESE SAID, WELL, PRESIDENT XI IS NOT GOING TO
PICK UP THE PHONE AND TALK TO YOU UNTIL YOU CLARIFY THAT.
I’M TOLD TRUMP IN A WHITE HOUSE MEETING SAID, SO CLARIFY,
MEANING SO GET IT DONE. IF THIS IS WHAT IT TAKES TO HAVE
THIS DIALOGUE, LET’S GET IT DONE.
THAT’S WHEN THIS BEGINS. IT DID MEAN BACKING OFF OF SOME
OF HIS EARLY RHETORIC. >>TOMORROW IS SATURDAY AND YOU
NEVER KNOW WHAT CAN HAPPEN, BUT IN THIS MOMENT YOU SEE TRUMP
ACTUALLY FOLLOWING THROUGH ON SOMETHING HE ALWAYS SAID HE
WOULD DO, ESPECIALLY ON THE WORLD STAGE, AND THAT IS ALWAYS
KEEP PEOPLE GUESSING. AND RUSSIA RIGHT NOW IS IN THE
POSITION TO BE MOST SURPRISED BECAUSE FOR MONTHS HE HAS BEEN
VEXING THE ENTIRE MEDIA COMMUNITY AND THE WORLD
COMMUNITY AS TO WHY HE IS SO — WHAT’S THE WORD — ALMOST
POSITIVE AND AT TIMES RIDICULOUSLY POSITIVE ABOUT
VLADIMIR PUTIN. >>OBSEQUIOUS.
>>OBSEQUIOUS. ALL OF A SUDDEN THINGS HAVE
CHANGED. >>THE SAME COULD BE SAID FOR
CHINA, THE WAY HE’S SPOKEN ABOUT CHINA.
THE ENTIRE PREMISE OF HIS CAMPAIGN IS WE’RE GETTING
SCREWED AND RIPPED OFF BY CHINA, THEY’RE BAD ACTORS AN CURRENCY
MANIPULATORS. THAT ALL CHANGED AFTER THE
MEETING WITH PRESIDENT XI. HE’S MOVING CARRIER GROUPS UP
TOWARD THE KOREAN PENINSULA. JOHN HEILEMANN, I WOULD GO TO
YOU AND TALK ABOUT DAVID
IGNATIUS’ POINT ABOUT WHO THE PRESIDENT IS LISTENING TO.
IT APPEARS TO BE THE TIGHT INNER CIRCLE.
STEVE BANNON LOOKING TO BE MARGINALIZED.
I THINK TRUMP WOULD SAY, YES, BANNON HELPED ME TO BECOME
PRESIDENT, THE DECISIONS HE’S MADE ON THE MUSLIM BAN, THE
TRAVEL BAN, HEALTH CARE REPEAL, HE WANTS TO GO WITH PEOPLE WHO
HAVE GOTTEN HIM WINS. >>I THINK FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE,
WILLIE, WHO ARE CONCERNED ABOUT TRUMP AS COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF,
CERTAINLY PEOPLE WHO ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE POLITICAL SPECTRUM,
BUT A LOT OF PEOPLE ON THE MAINSTREAM CONSERVATIVE SIDE OF
THE POLITICAL SPECTRUM, THEY LOOK NOW AT THE NOTION, AS JOHN
McCAIN SAID TO US LAST WEEK, THAT THE BIGGEST THING HE TOOK
OUT OF THE SYRIAN STRIKE LAST FRIDAY WAS, IT LOOKS LIKE DONALD
TRUMP IS LISTENING TO THE GENERALS.
THAT GIVES ME CAUSE FOR SOME DEGREE OF GREATER COMFORT AND
CONFIDENCE. I THINK THAT’S TRUE, AS I SAID,
ACROSS MUCH OF THE MAINSTREAM POLITICAL SPECTRUM.
YOU MAY DISGRE OR AGREE WITH ANY GIVEN POLICY DECISION OR
PREFERENCE THAT THOSE PEOPLE HAVE, BUT PEOPLE LIKE McMASTER,
LIKE GENERAL MATTIS, THESE ARE SERIOUS PEOPLE, SOBER PEOPLE,
AND THE FACT THAT TRUMP SEEMS TO BE LEANING ON TO THEM NOW IN A
WAY HE WASN’T NECESSARILY BEFORE GIVES YOU SOME SENSE, NOT JUST
BECOMING MORE CONVENTIONAL PRESIDENT, POTENTIALLY, BUT ALSO
ONE WHO UNDERSTANDS THAT HE KNOWS, TO SOME EXTENT AT LEAST,
HE’S STARTING TO KNOW WHAT HE DOESN’T KNOW.
>>YOU KNOW, MARK, A WEEK AFTER THE STRIKES, SOME MEDIA WRITERS
WITH OVERSIMPLIFY THIS. OH, IT’S JUST ABOUT THE STRIKES.
NO, GREAT COMFORT FROM WHAT HE SAID ABOUT NATO, THE FACT THAT
RUSSIA IS BACK ON THEIR HEELS, THE FACT WE HAVE A STRONGER
RELATIONSHIP WITH CHINA AFTER HE WAS PROMISING 40% TAFR RIFFS.
KNOWING TRUMP WE SAID IN REALTIME, THAT’S THE REAL ESTATE
DEVELOPER’S OPENING BID. YOU GO IN HARD.
>>SAME WITH PUTIN. >>IT WAS HIS OPENING BID.
>>COULD BE THE SAME THING WITH PUTIN.
>>HE’S TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE FACT THAT CONGRESS IS AWAY, HE
HAS THE STAGE TO HIMSELF. I THINK THE THING HE SAID ABOUT
TED CRUZ AND JEB BUSH, PARTICULARLY TED CRUZ AND MARCO
RUBIO IS EXACTLY RIGHT. MOST HUMAN BEINGS HAVE THE
CAPACITY, IF THEY’RE DEALING WITH SOMEBODY, JUST CARROTS OR
JUST STICKS. YOU’RE IN A GOOD MODE OR A BAD
MODE. HE CAN DO CARROTS AND STICKS ONE
DAY SIMULTANEOUSLY. YOU LOOK AT THE RELATIONSHIP
WITH RUSSIA AND CHINA, TOTALLY FLIPPED.
CHINA, GOOD PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP, TALKING ABOUT
WORKING TOGETHER, WHICH WILL COME TO A HEAD ABOUT WORKING
WITH NORTH KOREA. RUSSIA, OBSEQUIOUS BEFORE, NOW
VERY MUCH. KEEPING PEOPLE UNSETTLED BUT
BEING WILLING TO SWITCH ON A DIME.
THAT’S THE WAY HE’S ALWAYS BE AND IT’S WORKED THIS WEEK ON
FOREIGN POLICY. >>IT HAS RISKS.
>>BIG RISKS. >>SCARED THE HELL OUT OF THE
FOREIGN POLICY COMMUNITY AND OUR ALLIES, BUT IF THIS IS WHAT IT
LEADS TO, THEN THAT’S A POSITIVE THING.
WE JUST — AGAIN, LIKE YOU SAID BEFORE, WE DON’T KNOW WHAT’S
COMING NEXT. WE DO KNOW, THOUGH, HE’S
LISTENING TO THE RIGHT PEOPLE. >>HIS PEOPLE WOULD MAKE THE
ARGUMENT THAT SOME DISRUPTION WAS NECESSARY, THAT PEOPLE WERE
SO COMFORTABLE WITH THEIR EXPECTATIONS ABOUT WHAT AMERICA
WOULD AND WOULDN’T DO. WE WERE JUST SORT OF FIXED IN
PLACE IN PEOPLE’S MINDS. I’M STRUCK BY THE WAY IN WHICH
TRUMP IS PLAYING A GAME THAT I REMEMBER FROM RICHARD NIXON
WHICH IS THE GAME OF A TRIANGULAR WORLD WITH THE U.S.,
RUSSIA AND CHINA. YOU PLAY ONE OFF AGAINST
ANOTHER. YOU MOVE BACK AND MOVE FORTH.
CONSTANT DIALOGUE, LEVERAGE ONE AGAINST THE OTHER.
THAT IS WHAT KISSINGER THOUGHT WAS THE HEART OF GOOD POLICY IN
A PERIOD AFTER VIETNAM WHEN THE U.S. WAS WEAK AND STRUGGLING TO
FIND ITS WAY BACK. KISSINGER HAD THIS VISION, AND I
THINK HE’S BEEN FEEDING SOME OF THAT TO JARED KUSHNER WHO I
CAN’T HELP BUT SEE AS KISSINGER’S KIND OF PROTEGE IN
THIS WHITE HOUSE AND SAYING THIS GAME OF NATIONS IS THE WAY YOU
WANT TO TRY TO GAIN GREATER LEVERAGE.
>>MAKES PERFECT SENSE. AS YOU KNOW, THOSE TWO HAVE BEEN
TALKING FOR SIX MONTHS NOW. I REMEMBER, AGAIN, COMING UP
BEFORE WHEN HE PUT CHINA OFF GUARD EARLY ON, YOU SAID THE
SAME EXACT THING. KEEP BOTH OF YOUR RIVALS OFF
BALANCE. >>THIS IS ABSOLUTELY LESSON ONE
OF KISSINGER’S STATE CRAFT.

  1. Let's not mistaken not having a clue and going along with the recommendations of military higher ups, with being judicious and wise in his decisions as an executive. This is what we'd like to think and believe, but isn't necessarily the reality of the situation.

  2. Everything trump does is a stunt with a very calculated eventual outcome. His actions are not 'normal' or benevolent in any way. He's an evil, manipulative man.
    Is it possible that the current Syria mess is a false flag operation aimed at distancing Trump from his Russian overlords in the face of increasing public and congressional scrutiny in regards to the 2016 elections?

  3. A situation that has been left on the way side. The boarder. US is losing hundreds of thousands of dollars from tourists visiting the US. People are too nervous to holiday their. People from Canada are being turned away to visit the US every day. One women born and raised in Canada was turned away because she had a Muslim name. A bus of church people headed for a two week convention was turned away because they might take jobs away from Americans. Americans are canceling pre-booked charter trips to Canada for fear they will not be able to get home. I could go on.
    This sounds like a very controlling country – one who is run by a paranoid man, or a controlling man. (North Korea) just the beginning.

  4. Aah…, more bombs and even bigger ones means more love for Trump (according to msm). Again MSNBC what if Assad actually didn't gassed his own people?!?

  5. THINGS CHANGE ONLY BECAUSE THE NOOSE IS TIGHTENING AROUND HIM BUT HE'S LEFT ENOUGH ROOM TO WIGGLE HIMSELF OUT OF A TIGHT SQUEEZE SO NOW IT'S KNOW LONGER OBAMA HE HAS TO BLAME, HE CAN SAY HE HAD NO KNOWLEDGE THAT HIS OWN PEOPLE HAD BETRAYED HIM .HE IS A PUPPET MASTER AND A LIAR.

  6. So bombing countries that are already war-torn, and whose desperate refugees he specifically denies entry into the U.S., SOMEHOW MAGICALLY MAKES HIM CREDIBLE? Has everyone gone mad? Noticed how trump carefully used doublespeak to answer the question of whether or not he authorized his latest bombing, so that he could either brag or deny as the need arose.

  7. trump,should be shot all he's doing is bullying with bombs and threats he's not trusted and it's a disgrace your country thinks it's bueatiful dropping bombs and killing people shows the world he's wants war I am shocked you all think it's OK Americans hang your head in shame

  8. can a trump supporter please explain to me HOW sending 120million dollars worth of missiles to do NO damage to Syrian operations nor help the Syrian people from dying everyday. is a Positive for Trump?
    or maybe explain to me how total flip flopping on every issue he said was soo important for "americans" is a positive for Trump.
    And please explain to me how dropping a big as bomb in the middle of nowhere in Afghanistan is defeating terrorism?

  9. Bonding thru bombing! More bombs, more bonds. Bigger bombs, bigger bonds! Nuclear bombs, nuclear bonds. That's just physics man!

  10. fling some missiles in to the desert that kinda hit a target and drop a really big bomb compared to the ones we've been dropping for 15 years and you're a george marshall diplomat all of a sudden…

  11. People swear they didn't see this coming. As a Trump voter, I knew he knew very little about foreign policy. But that's what a great CEO does. He gets a team of experts and empowers them to give him the data to make the best decision. He basically just signs off on it. What he really wants to do is work for trade deals and get business tax cuts, the fun stuff. Leave the foreign policy to the people that know what they're doing.

  12. If bombing made Trump "Presidential" then G.W.Bush must be mother of all Presidents! Isn't that how ISIS was created?

  13. Trump gave the military authorization to do whatever they want, now they are leading the country as Trump sits back and takes credit while not really doing nothing himself. And yet most would say this is an improvement.

  14. AMERICA is insane- Trump starts dropping bombs and lobbing missiles- suddenly they love him. Yup America is the world's biggest bully

  15. You'll all be crying a different story when he starts a nuclear war in North Korea. And to the Press….STOP defending him!

  16. You guys are trying to make a Un-presidential person into a Presidential person. Please wake-up and realize this is not possible. He's not cut-out for the job…Duh! Again these are shiny objects to distract you. This man does not deserve this most important position, to be your President.

    Resist – Peace ✌️

  17. Well… I guess this is the week when Morning Joe has amnesia about Trump's clear corruption and insanity. They're good for at least one every month. Excellent journalistic work, guys.

  18. Best thing mainstream media could do now is fudge all the polls and give {Trump a continuous bump}until it's about close what his comrade Putin is getting. This will hopefully keep his ego feed and leave him not wanting to blow up [the world as we know it]so he'll feel fine.

  19. See guys this is why you can't trust the fakestream media. They will side with Trump when it is good for them. They have no morals.

  20. Moaning Joe, don't do what you did in election season — giving credit and air-time to a man who doesn't merit it. Trump is still incompetent to carry out his job. Please quit talking….

  21. This programme is one minute heavily critical of Trump and the next day praising him for being presidential – for that reason it has no credibility. Add to that the in jokes, the stuff they talk about but do not need to in front of camera – like what's on their mobile phones , the constant interruption of guests when they do not finish their sentences, the sermonising by Joe, Joe's constant references to his time in politics over 20 years ago ! ….. and Mika who I now realise does not have an original thought in her head and is basically a dumb blonde who got the job because of who her father was….

  22. Let's see – we still have Obamacare and we are still the worlds policeman ….. OMG – Orange hair is that lady who wears Neru suits in drag.

  23. With mad mentality as we have many in our societies and laughter of joy without any shame for killing of one another, let it be no doubt the end of mankind is near.

  24. so he launches bombs into a country that he can't remember.. and all of a sudden he is a success????????????????

  25. Trump is "king of the flip-flop" – TRUE
    Trump is "becoming a credible leader" – FALSE
    Why? – because you can't erase the past. Fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. The Little Boy Who Cries Wolf doesn't get a fifth chance. Even a broken clock is right twice a day. Anyone can hit a lucky winning streak. The bottom line is that we can never trust an inconsistent childish clown who is "king of the flip-flop."

  26. Joe and Mika, are you really such opportunists that a 'successful' Trump will make you forget the way he conducted his election campaign? Are you in favor of suppressing the investigation into the Russian connection, and the various investigations into his seemingly corrupt business practices?

  27. What a crock. Trump has gone back on every campaign promise. More wars, cuts to healthcare, cuts medicare, cuts to social security, lower taxes for the 1%. The is a corporate stooge.

  28. Just stop. Trump is not, nor will be a credible or proper president. quit reaching in order try to validate him.

  29. Trump gets suckered by simple ISIS machinations; be spent 60 tomahawks X 1.5 million$ per=100,000,000$; assets expended to degrade Syria's ability to fight ISIS; Trump is a childish simpleton; his foreign policy is a joke;

  30. – and then Trump called Erdogan to congratulate him on winning the election to move him closer to becoming an authoritarian leader of Turkey.

  31. Tell me what was accomplished by dropping a bomb on the tarmac of the airstrip in Syria?Who do they think they are kidding? We simply don't have time for the President of the U.S. to learn on the job. It is a joke and it's on us. Where is Congress's voice. They are gutless and power hungry. Want to get your agenda thru? Get to work.

  32. This is the direction Trump should take for Presidential success , David Ignoramus nailed it, Trump approval rating is up with the Cruse missile strike in Syria, MOAB IN Afghanistan , Battle group off the North Korean beaches, just think where his rating will be when he sends the US Army into Cleveland , Houston and Miami

  33. Trump the "Success"? Very positive meeting with china? The Russians are pitching? I'll be checking back next week when you people are back on earth.
