@realDonaldTrump has done well up to this point handling #Venezuela but must be very cautious going forward.
America’s reputation & history in #SouthAmerica is a factor as we have sponsored multiple coups going back to ‘54 and as late as ‘73.
Key to the survival or demise of #Maduro is the #military. Theyr’re divided with senior leaders supporting Maduro and mid-grade officers and lower ranks supporting #Guaido. They could switch sides at any moment if leadership of the army sees that they are fighting a losing cause.

WATCH @TeamCavuto 4:30PM EST on @FoxNews as I breakdown the latest on #NorthKorea, #China and #PresidentTrump. @realDonaldTrump
#NOKO is following the same pattern of diplomacy that they have always done. They have made pledges that they had no intention of keeping and then they cry foul when the US holds them accountable.
This is the norm but also it is a dangerous game for #KimJongUn because #PresidentTrump has a great deal at stake and Kim does not understand how determined the #POTUS is to WIN.

#President @realDonaldTrump's words, whether you accept his apology and his explanation, do not comport with his actions and his foreign policy toward #Russia. He has been one of the hardest presidents on Russia in recent memory.

#Trump #IntelligenceCommunity #Collusion
Where was the outrage when @BarackObama told Medvedev to inform #Putin "After my election I have more flexibility,"? I think much of the outrage being expressed- especially by #Republicans- is politically motivated.

#Trump #IntelligenceCommunity #Collusion #Russia
However, what @realDonaldTrump said was not right. It DID undermine our #IntelligenceCommunity, and it was a mistake. He has since corrected it and walked it back.

This comes comes on the heels of the @splcenter paying $3.4 million to settle a case when it falsely accused and labeled Maajid Nawaz & @QuilliamOrg (a #Muslim working against radical #Islam) extremists: facebook.com/generalboykin/…

In last 24hrs one of the most historic summits of our age took place. Historic because 3 presidents, #Clinton, #Bush, & #Obama, never secured an opportunity like this w/#NorthKorea leadership.

#NorthKoreaSummit #denuclearization #KimJongUn #TrumpKimSummit #TrumpKim #Trump
The fact that @realDonaldTrump secured this meeting, and did so only 18 months into his presidency, shows his determination to keep his campaign promises to the #American people.

#NorthKorea #NorthKoreaSummit #denuclearization #KimJongUn #TrumpKimSummit #TrumpKim #Trump
Kim Jong Un entered this meeting knowing that he was going to agree to #denuclearization.

WATCH: @dailybriefing w/@DanaPerino at 2pmEST, @FoxNews. I join with latest on #KimJongUn, #China, and why is #Russia sending their foreign minister to meet with #NorthKorea?

#NorthKorea is trying to push back against @realDonaldTrump with assertions they will not #denuclearize. Combined with a visit from a top #Russian diplomat, the #President faces probably his toughest diplomatic challenge yet.

bloomberg.com/news/articles/…
#China trying to preserve #trade imbalance that favors them + making threats against #PresidentTrump's proposed tariff hikes. Combined w/ their #nuclearprogram, cannot be ignored as factor in the upcoming #peacesummit between the President and #KimJongUn

#Iran has obviously not fully considered #Russia. Russia does not want a war between #Israel and #Iran in #Syria. So the Russians are now trying to mediate between the two nations. Russia has too much at stake in Syria. #SyriaStrikes #middleeast #tcot #ccot
#War between #Iran and #Syria would draw the #UnitedStatesOfAmerica into the fight and that would be a disaster for #Russia. Believe it or not, Russia does not want to tangle militarily with the US or Israel in Syria. #SyriaStrikes #middleeast #tcot #ccot
Scenario 1:
#Iran will launch another strike but it may come from #Hezbollah in #Lebanon or #Hamas in #Gaza. Or it could be another attack from #Syria into #Israel. My guess is that it will be a #terrorattack. #SyriaStrikes #middleeast #tcot #ccot #airstrike

Get the message, #Iran: #Israel will hammer you every time.

The #airstrikes into #Syria demonstrates #Israeli resolve to not allow Iran to establish military bases, facilities, or conduct activities near the border.
@netanyahu #middleeast #SyriaStrikes cnn.it/2jPrpFr
It should be pretty clear by now- since #Israel has launched at least a hundred strikes into #Syria in the last seven years- that every time they have felt threatened by #Iran, the #Israeli's will take decisive action. #SyriaStrikes
#Iran is determined to position themselves to be able to deal a devastating blow to their hated enemy, #Israel, from bases in #Syria. Their view is that they have helped the #Assad regime with their #civilwar and now it is payback time. #SyriaStrikes

The #President exhibited a sterling example of international leadership by withdrawing from the broken #IranNuclearDeal. Its the right decision for our safety & the safety of the world, to remove ourself from a deal that leads to a fully nuclear #Iran. #IranDealWithdrawl
World community gnashed their teeth + grumbled when Mr. #Trump moved our #embassy from #TelAviv to #Jerusalem. Now, they're getting behind that decision. I think it will be no different here. #Europe will follow @realDonaldTrump lead on #IranNuclearDeal. #IranDealWithdrawl
There is a 90 day "cooling-off" period before #sanctions are re-imposed on #Iran that will allow #Europe to come back to the negotiating table with us, which will allow them time to save face. #IranDealWithdrawl #IranNuclearDeal #IranDeal

WATCH @HappeningNow with @JonScottFNC on @FoxNews 11:40am EST
The United Nations is urging President Donald J. Trump to not leave the Iran Nuclear Deal.bbc.com/news/world-us-…

Is this to preserve peace? Or is Europe trying to protect their economic investments in Iran? #tcot
Many #leftwing pundits mocking @netanyahu presentation as "histrionics", trying to discredit evidence #Israel has produced.

@SenTedCruz tweeted that the knee-jerk reaction against Israel is "a long historical pattern of baseless slander." Could it actually be #antisemetism tho?
Nearly 200 retired General + Flag officers signed a letter in 2015 urging #Congress to reject the #IranDeal. There were countless others who said the same thing, but @BarackObama & @JohnKerry pushed a bad deal through.

I have never seen a #PrimeMinister give a tactical level briefing to the world like @netanyahu did today as he outlined how #Iran has lied and broken the #nucleardeal negotiated by @BarackObama & @JohnKerry.

#nuclear #weapon #unitednations #IranDeal
As a former Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence, I am astonished at the width and breadth of material #Israel produced on #Iran's violations of the #IranDeal, but I believe it is legitimate.

#nuclear #weapon #unitednations #NuclearDeal
I don't think @realDonaldTrump will blatantly pull out of the #IranDeal, but I'm convinced he will force #Iran back to the table + there is possibility for #sanctions. Unfortunately, the question is will #Europe support them.

The announcement by the #POTUS that he is replacing National Security Advisor LTG H R #McMaster with #Ambassador #JohnBolton is great news. This is an over due change that I wish Mr #Trump had made long ago.
John #Bolton is probably the most experienced and capable #diplomat in America today. He will be coming in at a critical time when the #President needs solid advice on dealing with #Iran, #NorthKorea, #Russia, #ISIS, and an array of other threats.
As for LTG #McMaster, I thank him for his service and wish him the best in the future. That said, there were issues, as I see them, regarding the #General’s tenure.
