Glad to see Trump’s field trip to the Middle East has its share of joint speeches with a variety of VIPs. Hopeful his persona of “Hi, I’m clueless, touchy, strange, unafraid to destroy my own country and trigger-happy” (see: leadership of North Korea and other state and non-state leaders) will help in Middle East peace process for a time. If he’s going to get some kind of win under his belt, that’d be a good start.
I joked about the glowing orb thing – hard not to – but even during the campaign Trump’s Saudi criticisms rang hollow as the relationship between the USA and Saudi Arabia is decades long and required for a stable dollar, so this about-face is rather a positive sign that perhaps he’s taking typical everyday Presidential duties seriously finally.
One can only hope.
