A new ABC News/Ipsos poll finds a majority of Americans said they disapprove of President Trump’s handling of the situation with Iran, 56% to 43%. Most also think the country is now less safe, 52% to 25%.
A new Pew Research poll found 64% of countries surveyed said they do not have confidence that President Trump will do the “right thing” in world affairs. This sentiment is particularly strong in western Europe, where under 25% of people in Spain, France and Germany say they have confidence in Trump. The number is lowest in Mexico, where only 8% of people have confidence in Trump to do the “right thing” in world affairs.
You have to admit, Trump’s a busy man,
Between assassinations and war with Iran.
But with war on the line,
He carved out executive time
To meet with Saudi Crown Prince Khalid bin Salman.
“The White House directed Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) to block an effort by Sens. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Thursday to pass a resolution via unanimous consent formally recognizing Turkey’s genocide of the Armenian people,” Axios reports. “This is the third time that the White House has directed a Republican senator to block the resolution, a symbolic measure already passed by the House that would infuriate Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an.”
Trump and Kim just can’t debate like adults.
They’ve flung epithets in the past, with varying results.
For a while they’ve been quiet,
But Kim’s just about had it —
Don’t call him “rocket man” or he’ll crank up the insults..
“I don’t want to comment on that. But the answer is no. But I don’t want to comment on that.”
— President Trump, quoted by CNN, when asked if he supports the protesters in Iran.
“They’re going to be escaping to Europe.”
— Donald Trump, when asked if he was concerned that Islamic State fighters would be able to escape because of Turkey’s military operation in Syria, he predicted that the militants would not travel to the United States, CBS News reports. His comment was apparently meant to reassure Americans.
It’s sad when you question your president’s patriotism,
And alarming when you consider his nascent despotism.
But when it comes to Trump,
The shark he jumped —
When he congratulated the Chinese on 70 years of Communism.
