Skip to comments.I Had Dinner With the Afghan Ambassador.What He Said About the Differences Between Trump, Obama..

President Trump is already turning the world upside down in international diplomatic circles by taking a markedly different approach to global politics than his predecessor.
It comes as no surprise that with each new American administration, a diplomatic chain reaction is felt the world over. The Bush years were marked by a heavy-handed, and sometimes ham-handed, forceful approach to American diplomacy. From NATO, to pan-Asia relationships, to the Middle East, Bush dealt from a position of cultural strength and a philosophy firmly rooted in Pax Americana. Was this approach successful? Historians certainly disagree.

Good read and insight into Trump's methods.
Trump didn’t bow to him?
“The Obama administration was the most academic administration we have ever had to deal with but the Trump administration has been the most thoughtful and intelligent.”
Advised by whom?!
My guess is deep staters from Foggy Bottom.
What idiot told the president of Afganistan to keep it short? One of his or one of ours?
I love that line!
He’s the Administrator. He sets policy; he has people who handle the details.
Obama has only one qualification for anything...... Obama is black
Dumb, ignorant, halfrican, communist, fag, drug addicted, low-life, EX-pResident, bastard.
I’d like to know just who the heck was giving this guy such stunningly bad advice. And why.
"Trump continually asked How can you win? What does Afghanistan need to win? in reference to our fight with terrorism. Trump wants to win. Sincerely. All the Obama administration wanted to do was not lose."
I’ll wager advised by some prog holdover.
from the article:
“However, we were pleasantly surprised at how much time President Trump spent asking very informed questions. The first time the presidents spoke, the questions Trump asked impressed us. How can you win in this fight [against terrorism]? he asked. What do you need to become financially independent? and How can American business invest in Afghanistan? How can we develop businesses and mining in your country?
Trump would listen intently after each question, often asking follow-ups. Trump’s second call with our president was even longer than the first. Asking these types of questions for our country is something the Obama administration never did. The Obama administration was the most academic administration we have ever had to deal with but the Trump administration has been the most thoughtful and intelligent.
Trump continually asked How can you win? What does Afghanistan need to win? in reference to our fight with terrorism. Trump wants to win. Sincerely. All the Obama administration wanted to do was not lose.”
“Obama has only one qualification for anything...... Obama is black”
He’s half-black.......close enough.......
Wonder if saying he’s white when he’s half-white would work?????
“What idiot told the president of Afganistan to keep it short? One of his or one of ours?”
Definitely the career diplomatic corp. They know all the proper protocol.....
half there is not
black there is only
going to be interesting as other countries interact with Trump
He think he meant the most sophomoric administration rather than the most academic administration.
The Trump administration is packed with doers and achievers. When they meet resistance, they build and route around it.
