Quick, what’s the Dem position on Syria? What about China?
Don’t bother. There was once a time when Democrats could discuss Syria, North Korea, the South China Sea, economic tensions in the European Union and the future of Africa. But that was before Trump.
Democrats don’t have a foreign policy anymore. They have a Trump policy.
Their only position on Syria or North Korea is that whatever President Trump is doing, is wrong. If Trump isn’t focused on a country and it can’t be tied into their Russia conspiracy theory, the Dems don’t care.
And the flip side of this dangerous geopolitical illiteracy is a new tendency to treat countries as enemies or friends based entirely on their relationship with President Trump. It’s not only Russia, which at least is actually hostile, but allies like Israel, the UAE and the Saudis whom the Democrats now obsessively hate.
