A disastrous move...which taken with the China HK move today...underscores that Trump has actively and systematically undermined the principles and accomplishments that have marked the past 75 years of US foreign policy.
When we talk about the failings of Pompeo, for example, it is not the parties he throws that make him the worst Secretary of State ever, it is the degree to which he has collaborated in the systematic attack on the most important sources of US strength, leadership and security.
All this is Putin's dream fulfilled, America on her knees, crawling off the international stage and leaving it to opportunists, criminals and thugs like himself.
