Trump Diplomacy

Donnie’s speech at the UN is a piece to remember, and it will provide the framework for American diplomacy under Trump’s America First policy. Dark times ahead.

But ironically enough as much as he wraps it in the stereotypical American values if Freedom and Capitalism, denouncing despot world leaders (not him, of course) it’s Ironic how different he treats two of the most despotic regimes, Venezuela and North Korea.

For Venezuela, he calls for the prompt reestablishment of full democracy. (But keep selling us the oil. USA still buys Venezuelan oil, keeping the regime in charge, just like the Saudis). Where is Maduro’s son? In the US enjoying all the luxuries siphoned out of Venezuela’s economy by his Daddy.

For North Korea, with the line “Rocket Man you are on a suicide mission” and “We will nuke North Korea, if provoked” he is supporting Kim Jong-un regime.

He just materialized the American menace, justifying The Greatest and Illuminated Dear Leader actions and policy of North Korea nuclear bombs as the only means for survival, it might be the first time in North Korea history that uncensored news will make it into the Hermit Kingdom.

And even Trump’s nickname for Kim Jong-un is not original. It was The Economist cover of July 2006 for his father Kim Jong-il.

Now, dedicated to the Greatest Illuminated Leader, Kim Jong-Il, here is the classic by Elton John “Rocket Man”, with a video from Iranian filmmaker and refugee Majid Adin, what a beautiful Irony.
