Believe it or not, I very much liked Trump’s speech last night. It had everything. And he spoke calmly, clearly, didn’t ad lib like he does when he goes off kilter…good speech.
Pakistan was followed by complimenting India (INDIA? WHY?) …excellent strategic mention. Pakistan couldn’t be happy about compliments to India. VERY good strategy.
No time given for pulling out of the war. Of course, only someone who doesn’t understand war would do that.
Trump gave good background for why he’s changed his mind since he did criticize Obama for staying in Afghanistan….he built up gradually, finally saying how sitting behind that desk in the Oval Office gives you a new ‘view’ on things. Only a lefty can argue that, so it’s no argument, and scored points with ME, anyway.
“We are not nation building, we are killing terrorists” No THAT was a refreshing concept; a president with the guts to say the word “Kill” let alone “terrorists”.
I could mention more but I’d love your thoughts.
Gad, even that little pill Lindsay Graham was raving about it. Even CNN couldn’t say much about it (yet). What did you think?
