President Barack Obama continues to flex his political muscles, trying to rein in presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s momentum. Obama unabashedly attacked the legitimacy of Trump’s campaign and message by saying that world leaders were “rattled” by the GOP nominee’s rhetoric.
“They are not sure how seriously to take some of his pronouncements,” Obama said at a news conference in Japan on Thursday, according to a White House transcription. “They’re rattled by him and for good reason.”
But Trump didn’t see any problem with that, and in fact seemed to like the idea that other nations were a little “rattled.”
“The countries in our world, our beautiful world, have been absolutely abusing us and taking advantage of us,” Trump replied Thursday at a North Dakota press conference, ABC reported. “So if they’re rattled in a friendly way, we’re gonna have great relationships with these countries. But if they’re rattled in a friendly way, that’s a good thing.”
That was a perfect response — we can’t let other nations take advantage of our prosperity or freedom.
Leaders around the globe have been working to build a coalition of open-border socialists for their grand attempt at a world community — one in which we “coexist in harmony.”
Any decent person knows this attempt at a New World Order is baloney because you can’t “coexist” with societies that want to murder you. Most in the “silent majority” appreciate Trump throwing a monkey wrench in the failing system.
“A lot of the proposals that he’s made display either ignorance of world affairs,” the president said about Trump, “or a cavalier attitude or an interest in getting tweets and headlines instead of actually thinking through what it is required to keep America safe and secure and prosperous, and what’s required to keep the world on an even keel.”
Right, because Obama has done a fantastic job keeping the world on an even keel during the past seven years. The president is genuinely clueless when it comes to making a nation prosperous — just look at the disaster of Obamacare.
America needs to be a fighter and a competitor in the world — not a lukewarm ally or a friendly enemy.
