Is it good strategy for Trump to meet with amoral dictators?
Douglas Levy in the Los Angeles Times
by Chris Thomas
Every day Trump does something that makes me question his fitness for office. Trump’s congratulatory call to Turkey’s strongman after a national referendum there greatly increased his power is now topped by the president’s invitation of the homicidal Philippine leader Rodrigo Duterte to visit the White House.
Our foreign policy is in complete disarray. I have no problem with keeping people guessing, but only if there is reason to believe that our leaders in Washington are making their decisions based on solid facts and sound strategy.
In our current situation, not only is there no strategy, but the president has demonstrated his utter disregard for facts. This has to stop.
