Predictably, President Trump’s critics are out in force today. On the Senate floor, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer focused on the Democrats’ talking points, saying that meeting with KJU gave him legitimacy that KJU will turn into favorable treatment from the community of nations. Saying that Sen. Schumer’s logic is more than flawed is understatement.

Further, if you accept Sen. Schumer’s logic as Gospel fact, then war or a nuclear North Korea is inevitable. That’s the definition of Democratic defeatism. We just had 8 years of that. The international community is worse off as a result of President Obama’s mishandling of foreign policy/national security.

Why listen to the idiots that screwed up Iran, Russia and Iraq? Why listen to the people who told us that ISIS was the JV team, then essentially told us we’d have to accept terrorism attacks as the new normal? Democrats keep telling us how to do things after they’ve created the mess. Here’s the video of Sen. Schumer’s speech:

The prestige that Kim Jung-Un supposedly got from the Summit can disappear in an instant. If Democrats are worried about that, they aren’t paying attention to what’s important. Despite the TV media’s obsession with what didn’t happen, they should consider the Trump administration’s strong negotiating position.

The military option is still a legitimate option. The UN sanctions haven’t been lifted. President Trump, Secretary Pompeo, Ambassador Haley and NSA Bolton have made it perfectly clear that the sanctions won’t get lifted until they see North Korea’s actions change. Further, if North Korea insists on continuing playing games, they can pay the price for that decision.

That’s before taking seriously the reality that President Trump won’t hesitate to use the military option if it comes to that. I remember Ambassador Crocker’s reply when asked what he thought of the Nimitz carrier group. He replied “That’s what 20,000 tons of diplomacy looks like. TRANSLATION: Little Rocket Man, the era of strategic patience is history.
