China and Japan both blink from President Trump’s unorthodox foreign policy

As Mexico, Australia, the European Commission, Iran, China, and even Germany are quickly finding out, Donald Trump is not the type of cool, calm, and collected diplomat that they have been able to run roughshod over in the White House for the past 8 to 24 years.  In fact, as one former Australian National Security Adviser acknowledged yesterday, Trump has made everything assumed of America in the past null and void.

Sorry liberals, but most Arab Americans and Muslim majority states don’t care about Trump’s new immigration ban

Perhaps the biggest irony regarding last weekend’s Executive Order signed by President Trump in which he ordered a temporary ban on incoming visitors and refugees from certain Middle Eastern states, was that the majority of protesting and outrage came from people who actually have no skin in the game when it comes to the vetting of foreign individuals.

In the final month of the Obama administration, both Vladimir Putin and Turkey’s Tayyip Erdogan left out the President from being a part of the peace talks in Syria as the final stages of the campaign against ISIS comes to an end.  And in a bold move here just one day before Donald Trump swears in to become the next Commander-in-Chief of the United States, the Russian leader gets in one final jab at what will one day be known in the history books as ‘Obama’s Failed War in Syria’ by inviting his political adversary to now be a part of the spoils of victory.

What it will be like to live in a post-sanction world

On Jan. 14 President-Elect Donald Trump spoke with the Wall Street Journal and reiterated his desire towards seeking to improve relations with both Russia and China, and at the same time masterfully playing his obfuscation card with the media on what policies he truly intends to implement.  In fact, his ability to promote both sides of an issue to different audiences has become one of The Donald’s most powerful traits… which is the ability to go back and forth on a given topic without getting labeled with the politically divisive term ‘flip-flopper’.
