    A better comparison would be Mussolini whom he actually quoted.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Ugh...no.

    Does anyone (not you, Steven) really think he had any type of coherent strategy for any of this? Or that he has any type of coherent plan going forward? Anybody? Buehler?

    It was like the Charlie Foxtrot of accepting the phone call from the Taiwanese President. The next day there were articles in respected outlets that said it was the first step in a grand strategy to re-set U.S.-China relations. No it wasn't! Jesus, Trump just doesn't have any clue as to how any of this works!

    Well, good luck with your businessman-genius President.

    When he robs all of us blind to further enrich his family and cronies at your expense don't feel butt-hurt about it.

    A better military comparison might be General George Armstrong Custer.
