Well, that would be a whole different problem! But you are right, Trump is know to be easily swayed.

What would you have Trump do?

Would you have Trump overthrow the Turkish government like Truwoman overthrew the Greek government and then rammed $Billions in military contracts down their throats?

And then in 1967, LBJerk overthrew the Greek government and rammed another few $Billion down the Greek's throats, because they weren't buying enough F-104 Starfighters.

Would you have Trump be like Eisencoward and try to overthrow the Syrian government for Declaring Neutrality While Non-White/Non-Christian? Or try to assassinate and overthrow Nasser of Egypt for Declaring Neutrality While Non-White/Non-Christian or assassinate Nehru of India for Declaring Neutrality While Non-White/Non-Christian?

That kind of foreign policy might have worked in the past, but today that's a good way to get three 450 kt nuclear warheads detonated 85 miles above the surface over the US. You won't see them or hear them, but you will see and hear hundreds of angry starving penniless mobs roaming around attacking you and your family for the rest of your life, however short your life might be.
Your spell checker is not working very good when it comes to Presidential names. You may want to check into that.

"Eisencoward"? And what do you call Trump? You know, the guy who dodged the draft with an ingrown toenail?

Of course it was his advisors who recommended Trump hire Bolton—
Trump has no clue about who to hire to work foreign policy
He probably thought Bolton was Sam Elliot 50 lbs heavier

Took Trump a long time don’t you think to “realize” his ideas were at odds w/Bolton’s???
Couldn’t they have hashed that out BEFORE Trump nominated him for the job?
Couldn’t Trump’s blazing IQ and ability to ask pithy questions reveal Bolton wasn’t the man for the job?
And if Trump hired Bolton because of the advisors he used—why isn’t he getting rid of the advisors who gave him bad advice?
Wouldn’t you want to do that—
After all—look at how many people Trump has had to fire because he got “bad advice”...

Well Bolton wasn't there for long.

It was probably his little SIL, Jared, who suggested the pro-Israeli Bolton. Heck...wwouldn't be surprised if Netanyahu was the one who shoved him down Trump's throat.

OH, that's not why. It's always about D. T. having been offended, not being agreed with or not getting the "loyalty" he wants, so...another one gets the boot.

Trump hires only the best people. Then he fires them. But there's method in the apparent madness: he's trolling the libs.

Let me know when we can earmark our federal taxes for specific spending. I'd like to be able to designate how my tax $$$$$ are spent, as well.

I'd also like to know why Democrats are so anti-Israel and so pro-Arab since Saudi Arabia and other Arab regimes, as you readily admit, are so brutal.
