Meeting Dictators

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY JULY 3, 2019

         PRESIDENT TRUMP IS BEING CRITICIZED BY THE USUAL SUSPECTS FOR MEETING WITH DICTATORS AT THE G-20 SUMMIT IN JAPAN. THESE INCLUDED VLADIMIR PUTIN, THE KING OF SAUDI ARABIA, WHO HAS BEEN CREDIBLY ACCUSED OF ORDERING THE MURDER OF A WASHINGTON POST COLUMNIST, AND LATER AT KOREA’S DMZ WITH NORTH KOREAN DICTATOR KIM JUNG-UN.

         IF TRUMP DID NOT MEET WITH THESE PEOPLE THOSE SAME CRITICS WOULD BE SLAMMING HIM FOR NOT MEETING WITH THEM. PRESIDENT OBAMA MET WITH SOME BAD GUYS, TOO. HE  SAID HE WOULD EVEN MEET WITH LEADERS OF IRAN IF IT WOULD HELP LOWER THE TENSIONS BETWEEN OUR TWO COUNTRIES. OBAMA WON THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE FOR DOING NOTHING.

         YES, THE BAD GUYS MIGHT GET SOME GOOD PRESS FROM THEIR CONTROLLED MEDIA BACK HOME, BUT OPENING DOORS IS BETTER THAN NAILING THEM SHUT. THAT’S WHAT RICHARD NIXON DID WITH CHINA AND EVEN DEMOCRATS PRAISED HIM. TRUMP GETS NO PRAISE BECAUSE THEY HATE HIM. I’M CAL THOMAS.
