Despite his numerous foreign policy stumbles, President Donald Trump may have done something right during his tour of the Middle East and Europe. According to CNN correspondent Timothy Stanley, President Trump has done what former President Obama failed to do: “brought a new sense of strategic vision–a corrective to the regional crisis that hardened under Obama.” Stanley adds that Mr. Trump picked sides, “even when choices were not ideal.”
The apparent catalyst for this choice was the terrorist attack against a concert in Manchester, England. which was carried out by a 23-year-old radicalized Muslim. Trump called the bombing an act of terror carried out by a murderer and a “loser.” That comment resonated well with many UK residents who have endured several bombings over the past few months.
Here’s the analysis by Mr. Stanley of CNN:
