It seems clear that Donald Trump, were he to become President, would totally upend American foreign policy, under both Republican and Democratic Presidents, from Harry Truman to Barack Obama.
His “love affair” with Russian leader Vladimir Putin is very dangerous, and will create instability in Europe, with the issue of the Baltic States being under threat, and undermining NATO in the process, which has been in effect since 1949.
His compliments of North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un will destabilize South Korea and Japan.
His lack of understanding of the complex Middle East will cause more disarray in an area already in turmoil.
His lack of knowledge of foreign policy will cause other nations, particularly our allies, to believe that he a dangerous, unstable individual to lead the most powerful nation in the world.
His temper, and poor judgment, will lead to foreign interventions out of pique.
We cannot afford someone as Commander in Chief who lacks the respect of the military and the intelligence community.
