Sorry the number of Trump's accomplishments so far are too numerous for you.philbo wrote: ↑Thu Jun 14, 2018 1:31 pmYou forgot to mention the sun rising and setting, the earth going around the sun, water being wet, the sky being blue, and the wind blowing; or other things that have happened since trumps election that can not be directly related to any of his actions. The economy, good or bad, is bigger than the president.
In June 2008, I agreed with conservatives like Hannity and Bolton who stated the following about bush’s agreement with n korea amid negotiations to dismantle their nuclear program:
BOLTON: I think it’s actually a clear victory for North Korea. They gain enormous political legitimacy…In return, we get precious little. I think this is North Korea demonstrating again that they can out-negotiate the U.S. without raising a sweat.
HANNITY: Boy I tell you they’ve done it time and time again, and I’m sorta perplexed, Mr. Ambassador, to understand why we keep going back to the well knowing that they haven’t kept the agreements in the past. Whatever happened to Reagan’s “trust but verify”?
Again in April 2010 when hannity stated “Barack Obama catering to the world’s dictators is literally the Neville Chamberlain of our time,” There are many others at this point. My position has never changed on this issue. I have grown used to liberals flip-flopping like a school of dieing fish, but it bothers me to watch once conservatives voices do the same.
Do you think Trump is not planning to verify and inspect? Do you really think he thinks the work there is done?
Here are some excerpts from Pence's speech to the Southern Baptist Convention yesterday.
And we once again, we have a President of the United States who stands without apology as leader of the free world. (Applause.)
We certainly saw that in high relief over the last several days, didn't we? Just this morning, the President returned from a historic summit with Kim Jong Un of North Korea. The President went to this meeting as, in his words, "on a mission of peace," but with eyes wide open. And I can report, the meeting that took place was direct and honest, provocative, and productive. It resulted in a bold first step where North Korea's leader committed to the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. (Applause.)
And among the agreements reached, very deeply meaningful to me as the son of a combat veteran from the Korean War, President Trump secured a commitment from North Korea to recover and repatriate the remains of more than 5,000 American MIAs who fell in the Korean War. We are finally going to bring our boys home. (Applause.)
Now comes "vigorous negotiations to implement the agreement," as the President said, "as soon as possible." But make no mistake about it: The success of this summit, and the progress we've made, is a direct result of President Trump's steadfast leadership and the courage of one American family.
From the outset of our administration, President Trump changed our policy toward North Korea, ending years of what was known as "strategic patience." The President brought unprecedented economic and diplomatic sanctions to bear on North Korea, and he used the kind of tough rhetoric, in South Korea and at the United Nations, that communicated America's resolve to protect our country and stand with our allies....
http://www.christianpost.com/news/vp-mi ... st-224943/The truth is, their example and the President's stand on "peace through strength" brought us to this day, to this step. And as we move forward with further negotiations, we now will "trust but verify." And as the President said, our "sanctions will remain in place" until North Korea's nuclear weapons are "no longer a factor." We will not repeat the mistakes of the past. (Applause.)
I bolded some key points that specifically address your concerns for you.
