Trump Gets SURPRISE Endorsement. Nobody Saw That Coming!

By

Donald Trump is a force to be reckoned with. That is evidenced by the fact that both patriots at home and even enemies abroad respect him.

It’s also a stark contrast to the reactions around the world when Obama was first elected. Only those aligned with America’s liberal elite praised his victory.

You’d think the daughter of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein would have nothing but hatred for America and its president.

And, indeed, Raghad Hussein does blame the US for the chaotic situation in her country.

But she sees in Trump a leader she can respect, even if he is her enemy. Unlike Obama, who many in the Middle East now see as a joke.

Trump “exposed the mistakes of the others, specifically in terms of Iraq, which means he is very aware of the mistakes made in Iraq and what happened to my father,” Hussein said in an interview with CNN.

Trump, she continued, possesses a “high level of political sensibility.”

Mismanagement

During the election campaign, Trump repeated criticized both Obama’s and Bush’s handling of the war in Iraq.

While he had no love for Saddam Hussein, Trump suggested that the US had focused on the wrong enemies. And that’s why Iraq and so much of the rest of the Middle East is being overrun by jihadists today.

When looking at Trump’s policies, one must understand that he’s far more focused on domestic issues.

But a careful examination of his positions would indicate that he advocates taking a hard line with dictators like Hussein. And when it comes to outright shows of military strength, enemies like ISIS should be the target.

Like many other analysts, Trump has ascertained that countries like Iraq were not stable enough for American-style democracy. Many still require strong authoritarian rule to maintain the peace. Some say the best America can do is keep the Middle East overlords in line.
