1. The global destruction of American interests is undeniable, driven by a man unfit for the presidency who, like too many Americans, understands little about foreign affairs and the critical role that plays in our national security and economy.

The result around the world...
2...NATO is falling apart, as least in relation to the United States and, because of Trump's Syria folly, Turkey. This was the key goal of Putin in his disinformation of 2016, and it worked.

The words of President Macron, who is now calling for a new European military union...
3...In Asia, key allies are turning away from us because of Trump's arrogant blunders. This is what you get when a real estate developer who knows nothing about foreign affairs is in charge.

South Korea is tilting to China, because of USA…
4...our most important ally in that region - Japan - is also tilting toward China, developing strong relations. Both are subject to Trump's irrational trade wars, so they are setting up their own markets with each other. Abe has become Xi advisor on Trump.…
5...over to the Middle East, starting with Syria. We shivved our most important ally in all of our military strategies across the Middle East because Trump burped and sent out a tweet. The consequences have been disastrous, by establishing we are not a reliable ally....
6...but his incompetence is playing out everywhere in the Middle East because he thinks foreign policy is all about money. Like any unread real estate developer with a narcissistic personality disorder, he can't be bothered to learn before he acts....
7...we have a global catastrophe on our hands. Couple all of this with Trump's (and the GOP's) willingness to simply walk away from any treaty or accord - Kyoto, Paris, Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action - means we have stiffed almost every ally we have. For...what?....
8...with Trump, weve proven we won't stand by allies, we will abrogate whatever treaty we feel like walking away from, we will abandon military support (canceling SK military exercises because North Korean didn't want them). We will allow foreign nations to murder our citizens...
9...this must all be fixed, or the United States is done. For reason number 407. We cannot, in a global economy with international military alliances, say "we dont need anybody else."

But I do not have any idea how to fix this. I dont know if anyone can.
