    China, Russia, North Korea...even Turkey, these guys are walking all over us.

    Our president is an absolute joke. The presidency seems to just be a hobby to him.

    I tend to lean left but I'm at a point where I would vote for a Republican hawk if one were nominated this next go-around, just to fix our standing on the world stage.

    Trump is a weak idiot, supported by virtually all Republicans. I can't stand the guy so much that I'm angry enough to vote Republican.

    Trump lifted all 'sanctions' against Turkey.

    I agree we are less influential now than we were in 2016. I'm not completely unhappy about it though. It'll be a relief to not be responsible for the fate of the world.

    Turkey also got California and D.C. in the deal.

    Curious what foreign policy decisions absolutely strengthened the US?

    Don't forget Moscow Mitch McConnell

    Every single one of Trump's betrayals of America's postwar legacy, from the Turkish betrayal to Russian election hacking, is and continues to be aided and abetted by the Republican Party, especially the Majority leader.

    He is as much Putin's bitch as Trump, frankly even more so becuase he doesn't really even get anything out of it save some incredibly unqualified judges.

    Good lord, it must have been difficult to be Juan Valdez from 1945 through 2016, driving down the Katy Freeway with fate of the world on his shoulders.

    Juan-dimensional deep cut #9,562. Keep them coming.

    I agree, while that's not something we are shouldering so much...we can now leave it to China and Russia to dictate world peace. We've left it in good hands...

    When you're carrying the whole world on your shoulders, you gotta tack to the center

    He's up for reelection so this shouldn't be surprising.

    The problem is that there is a power vacuum now, being swiftly filled by China and Russia. Russia deploying troops on the Syrian border. China doing it's thing. Meanwhile Trump continues to grab pussy and tweet his anger.

    It's right by might. That's a concept as old as life itself.

    So you don't want to force 'freedom' on people, that's fine. You have to back your talk up with a strong military in this world.

    It is the domestic partisan politics making America weaker.

    It is Trump vs. MORE than half of USA plus China, Russia and more ....

    Yea, we're working on a one party communist system as we speak. Think and don't lump citizens that dislike Trump in the same breath as China, Russia, etc.

    In good old days, when USA was in global stage, the two-party system effectively worked as one-party because both parties had the same tune with the same pro-war propaganda. That's when USA were getting 'respect'. Now Trump had to overcome the fake media and Democratic party to even reach the global stage...

    Trump is a coward - and a bully and the world knows that he is full of ****, and hot air, with no actual follow through.
