Trump Rebuts Corker “World War III” Charge

President Trump Tuesday rebutted a contention by Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Bob Corker, R-Tenn., that Trump’s “reckless” behavior was putting the United States on a path toward World War III.

Trump took questions today from reporters during a visit to the Oval Office by Henry Kissinger:

Question: Mr. President, is Senator Corker right that you’re putting the U.S. on the path to World War III?

Trump: We were on the wrong path before. All you have to do is take a look. If you look over the last 25 years through numerous administrations, we were on a path to a very big problem — a problem like this world has never seen. We’re on the right path right now, believe me.

He’s right. He’s exactly right. If anyone put us on a path toward World War III, it was Corker. He arranged things in the Senate so that instead of Barack Obama needing a two-thirds majority to approve the Iran treaty, as required under the Constitution, a two-thirds majority was needed to reject the deal. The agreement, of course, allows Iran to make nuclear weapons in about a decade.

Sounds like World War III to me.

Many who supported Trump worry about his rashness. But they believe he was well worth the risk.

The fact is that nothing has gotten us closer to the abyss, whether it’s the debt, ISIS, or nuclear weapons for North Korea and Iran, than the cool, calm heads that reign in the Washington establishment. These people ultimately believe that other countries think like we do and can be persuaded by reason. They can’t.

American voters reasoned that Trump is someone who won’t accept the status quo that is potentially leading us to doom. They decided he was bold enough and strong enough in his beliefs that he would do something to change it. He’s not a pussy, and he doesn’t assume that Ayatollah Khamenei “gets it.” And that makes Trump a lot less dangerous than Barack Obama, who was afraid to act and who didn’t understand other cultures as well as Trump does.

That’s right, Trump gets foreigners better than Obama.

Here’s Trump with Kissinger. Earlier, a crane had deposited Kissinger into his seat, where he awaited Trump.

  1. Say what you will about Donald Trump, and he does lob some verbal grenades at times, but Bob Corker’s ONLY language is LOSER.
    The people of Tennessee will be much better off without him representing them. He is a b.s.’er and a turncoat.

  2. I’ve had bad feelings about MrKissinger ever since the fall of Saigon.
    Looking at him sitting there, still breathing, still talking and all of the horrors of Vietnam come back.
    50,000 young men died there, and all for nothing.

    About this Corker guy- you’re right, he was and still is part of the problem of world chaos. The sitting Congress could have stopped Obama’s dangerous and clueless apology tour and the agreement with Iran that meant we agree they can do whatever they choose.
    We’re all praying that enough pressure will be brought to NoKo from nations that will be hurt if they do follow through and send those missiles to any peaceful nation.
    Corker can put a cork in it.

  3. At least the enemy against whom Americans fought in Vietnam Nam (communism) was & is the actual enemy- now voguely disguised as diversity, coexistence, multiculturalism, & tolerance. The American troops’ sacrifice in Southeast Asia has true meaning as does that of the Korean War American combatants who were also with held from victory! The other 20th & 21st centuries’ wars were fought for the other side through impressive powers of persuasion- fellow travelers with the other side.
