It’s easy to argue with emotion. Too often we allow fear to determine our decision making. While Obama was President, Otto Warmbier, a college student from Ohio, was arrested in North Korea for alleged theft of a propaganda poster in 2016. He was sentenced to fifteen years in prison. While imprisoned he fell into a coma and died June 2017. Today our Secretary of State is traveling home with Three American hostages that had been held in North Korea.
President Trump and former President Obama could not be more different when it comes to handling dictators. Obama appeased. Trump does not. When Trump got on the scene, he stood up to Kim Jong Un. The media, and people who just don’t get Trump freaked out when Trump called Un “Rocket Man” and when he put tough sanctions on North Korea. The fear was that we would anger North Korea. We didn’t want to make North Korea mad. Trump then befriended China, knowing China was close with Kim Jong Un. China’s growing relationship with the U.S. is said to have influenced Un’s recent behavior. We have now also witnessed North Korea’s willingness to begin the process of possible denuclearization. Lastly a historic moment was made just weeks ago when the North Korean and South Korean President Moon Jae-in shook hands at the Military Demarcation Line that divides the two countries.
You do not appease a bully. You stand your ground. Yesterday, President Trump pulled America out of one of the worst deals ever made in American history. A deal that gave a country that wants to kill us all billions of dollars, and gave the U.S NOTHING!
Last week, Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, exposed that Iran were going full steam ahead in creating nuclear weapons. As the media screams that we may anger the giant, or that we may have upset those that already want us dead…..knowing the facts is extremely important. Why was the Iran Deal a bad deal? I lay it out here in my latest LIVE vlog. Check it out and let me know your thoughts!
