In this highly critical article, the UK’s liberal Independent argues that President Trump’s latest intervention is what you get with a reflexive president. It reports that in a neck-snapping 48 hours, he has gone from ‘America First’ to plunging headlong into punching militarily into the heart of a conflict thousands of miles from the homeland. It speculates whether he’s gone from incoherency to coherency.
The article raises questions about the level of international discussion prior to intervention by Trump. There will also be questions within the US.
For sure, Trump has made his mark as president – now he needs to deploy US power effectively to fight for freedom in the face of oppression and evil regimes
