Two things have been happening this week: the media misrepresenting the Google memo, and Kim Jong Un having a hissy fit about his new nukes (see Trump Warns of ‘Fire and Fury’ if Kim Jong Un Doesn’t Back Off and General Mattis Releases Chilling Statement for North Korea. And it’s AWESOME). But when NoKo threatened Guam, the media of course… blamed Donald Trump. Who’s been president for *checks watch* eight months. Because really, what else are they going to do but blame the new guy with an R after his name?
Guam Governor Eddie Baza Calvo didn’t get his panties in a bunch when Trump used words against North Korea. Turns out he’s on Trump’s side.
As far as I’m concerned as an American citizen, I want a president that says that if any nation such as North Korea attacks Guam, attacks Honolulu, attacks the west coast that they will be met with hell and fury. What I’m concerned about is if a U.S. senator says ‘Initiate an attack’ and causing a war – this is American sovereign soil – so it’s important that as we make decisions that those folks that are in a position of leadership that they understand too that war is the last option.
An American president is more concerned with defending America then hurting other country’s feelings. Imagine that. It’s almost like that’s what Americans wanted when they elected Trump, and not Madam Pantsuit.
So while you may even think “Let’s not escalate this nuke situation” and believe Trump answering Kim Jong Un with his “fire and fury” comments was escalation, remember that Trump just used words. And Trump, who’s been president for *checks watch* 8 months, isn’t the one who has “escalated” this North Korean problem.
Here, some review:
