Random Thought of the Day
With Donald Trump’s insistence of border wall funding in the next budget, he is in effect establishing his own version of Obama’s “red line”. To refresh your memory, during the Obama presidency, he said to Syria that the use of weapons of mass destruction would cross a “red line” and bring U.S. military intervention. Syria proceeded to use chemical weapons to kill thousands of its own people, after which Obama did nothing. From that point on his credibility disappeared, and any future ultimatums were meaningless. Trump is facing the same situation on border wall funding. If he backs down, all his credibility with his supporters will evaporate, and he will guarantee himself an election defeat.
