Pence claims to have the authority to talk foreign policy. But look at the top of his ticket, headlined by a total foreign policy amateur with an erratic, unpresidential temperament.
Better call Sean Hannity, because he’s the only person plausibly convinced by Mike Pence’s argument that Donald Trump can be trusted on foreign policy and counted on as an even-keeled commander in chief.
Donald Trump falls to pieces over mere tweets, and he’s been feuding with Rosie O’Donnell for 10 years because she made fun of his hair once.
This vindictive man-child who loves torture, “nuclear,” and dictators, cannot be trusted with leading the country and guiding its foreign policy doctrine. There’s no credible argument otherwise.
Here’s a taste of the absurdly alarming Trump Doctrine that no amount of Mike Pence clean-up can paper over:
- Celebrating World Dictators. From Saddam Hussein to Kim Jong-Un, Trump has repeatedly expressed his admiration for world dictators, past and present.
- Pro-Torture and Misc. War Crimes. Trump’s said he’d kill terrorist families and bring back waterboarding and “a hell of a lot worse.” Another favorite Trump refrain: “Take the oil” — another war crime.
- Nuclear Proliferation and Usage. Trump has asked, “Why are we making [nuclear weapons if we can’t use them]?“; refused to rule out using nuclear weapons in Europe; and argued for nuclear proliferation in Japan and South Korea.
- A “Very Beautiful” Secret ISIS Plan. The most we’ve heard about Donald Trump’s “very beautiful” secret plan to defeat ISIS is that he thinks the sitting President of the United States founded the terrorist organization. Trump did sort of confess he doesn’t really have a secret plan, and that he’d just ask “the generals” — though he claims to know more than them — to come up with a plan.
