Because President Trump is drawing lines in the sand, threatening fire and fury, and North Korea is blithely crossing the lines, daring Trump to back up his talk. Trump can't back up his talk, because if he initiates military action against North Korea, then China will defend North Korea. In effect, President Trump is trumped by China. It's China drawing the lines that North Korea respects. North Korea is showing Trump the finger.

As for strategy, everyone knows that no matter what Trump does the left will have spasm lol.

Make the case that he isn't!

WHAT mature adult would make up phone calls praising himself and announce them to the public as if they acyually happened?

If it talks like a petulant child, walks like a petulant child, and acts like a petulant child, it IS a petulant child.
