President Trump is clearly mishandling the standoff with North Korea. We get no pleasure in writing this critique as the consequences of such mismanagement are dire.

As the Left roots for Trump’s tax plan to fail, for his certain (or not so certain) demise in regard to the Russian Collusion, and his constant staff scandals that embarrass his Administration, we advise all Americans to rally behind the President on this issue as a mere mishap results in consequences that are incalculable. Seeking to undermine Trump on this is counterproductive. And since, we are all on the same side on this one, we all want the same thing—a denuclearized North Korea which will result in peace and stability. Thus, we must not stay idle while the fate of the Globe rests in the hands of a Twitter feed. And if we may add a joke without distracting us from the seriousness of the issue, those are some very small hands we’re talking about

Ironically, to fully understand the root of the problem, we must venture back to the Second Presidential Primary Debate at the Reagan Library in Simi Valley California from September 2015 (seems like ancient history now doesn’t it?). In an instance of prophetic accuracy, Senator Rand Paul expressed his concern for Trump’s temperament and his hesitation to allow someone like Trump the possession of the nuclear launch codes:

“His visceral response to attack people on their personal appearance, short, tall, fat, ugly, my goodness that happened in junior high. Are we not all worried?”

 

You see, it was not only the Left who raised concern about Trump’s temperament. Whether or not this was actually ‘prophetic,’ is somewhat suspect, as it would not take a crystal ball to forecast the lunacy that our foreign policy now teeters upon as a simplistic typo on twitter, for the first time, now has the ability to start thermo-nuclear war… but just this weekend Trump attacked the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-Un himself, stating:

Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me “old,” when I would NEVER call him “short and fat?” Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend – and maybe someday that will happen!

Look at the striking similarities:

Now Trump back in the 2015 debate:

“I never attacked him on his look and believe me there’s plenty of subject matter there – that I can tell you.”

Trump clearly lacks restraint. Though, this is no new phenomenon. This is not the first purposeful and preventable blunder that Trump has made in regard to North Korea. Our Editorial Board thinks it adamant that we remind you of the red flags that were raised in the past in order to prepare ourselves for subsequent votes in the future. This could have been foreseen and to some it was. But those who voted for Trump, those who like the job he is doing: we plead with you to at least admit that though it feels good to chide and poke fun at the North Korean dictator (and all political enemies for that matter) it is not mature, Presidential, productive, or safe to do so. It is not the President’s job to gamble with the future of the citizenry. Even those of us who approve of Trump’s move to taunt Kim Jong-Un, are surely not ready to sacrifice a son, brother, or grandson for the mere cost of calling him a funny name. Or worse: lose a city to the fat man armed with ICBM’s… ‘at least we got in a good joke.’

The United States must be the bigger man. We must act deliberately, firmly, and we must do so while staying sober, calm, cool and collected. In the words of President Theodore Roosevelt,

“Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far.”
