It’s Unthinkable One of the Dems Could Be President
Under a Democrat successor, President Trump’s mixed performance in foreign policy would give way to sheer disaster.
Under a Democrat successor, President Trump’s mixed performance in foreign policy would give way to sheer disaster.

President Trump has earned both the highest praise and severest criticism for his decisions on defense and foreign policy matters. Whether he was revoking Obama’s terrible nuclear weapons deal with Iran or telling the world that he trusted Russian President Putin as much as he trusts our intelligence community, Trump has followed no ideology or explained how or why he reached any decision. His beliefs and his actions are transactional.

His latest — first betraying our Kurdish allies and then telling the world that we’re seizing the Syrian oil and keeping the revenue (reportedly $45 million a month) resulting from its sale — has no precedent in American history.

Despite Trump’s unsteadiness, we have to remember that under any of the Democrats who want to replace him, all of these decisions — and everything else related to the defense of our nation and our foreign policy — would become vastly, almost unimaginably, worse.

In a dozen months the choice will be between Trump and — in all likelihood — either Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders or Kamala Harris. It’s possible, but just barely, that one of the lower-tier candidates such as Pete Buttigieg could capture the Dems’ nomination, but that possibility is so slim that it’s not worth considering at this point.

All of the Dem candidates are virtually silent on defense and foreign policy because no one in their party gives a damn about those issues. The primary season debates are endlessly boring because they focus entirely on healthcare, immigration, and criticism of President Trump.

Despite the Dems’ lack of care for national security we know enough about them to understand that if any of them is elected president our nation will be greatly endangered.
