The Great American Giveaway

Thought of the day: Trump doesn’t need America’s Congress in order to give handouts or relief to Russia and China.  By abdicating American leadership around the world, and alienating our friends and allies, he is creating a vacuum that other countries can fill.  It’s worse than sending our enemies money, supplies, or arms to fight us, because we’re giving them influence and power that they can hold onto indefinitely.  It will be harder to rectify in ten, twenty or fifty years; the damage done to the world order by our neglect may very well be irreversible, and mitigating this damage will fall entirely on the shoulders of the next generation.

A note to the future: not all of us were complicit in this giveaway.
