In praise of the President (are you listening, Mrs May?)


INTERESTING that on the same day that our unfortunately still with us Prime Minister gave her backing to her undiplomatic diplomat in Washington, the authoritative National Review published an article announcing that President Trump is performing effectively.

‘It’s time for the Trump haters to ditch their “unfit” trope. From former CIA chief John Brennan on the left to the Never Trumpers on the right, Donald J Trump is “unfit” to be president. Or so they insist’. So writes Deroy Murdock.

To that list he might well have added Sir Kim Darroch who we hope will now have read some contrary opinion to his own and will include a copy in his next diplomatic bag to London.

Murdock continues: ‘Somehow, they claim, a combination of incompetence, mental illness, and excessive fast-food consumption all render Trump incapable of executing his duties.

‘While this has been an absurd and ugly lie since Trump’s inauguration, these stalwart naysayers now should see that Trump is entirely equipped to do his job. Trump’s critics surely will disagree with his policies and decisions. But the last few weeks should make even them admit that, whether they cheer or jeer his actions, he actually is performing as president, and effectively so.’

That’s how the article begins, and you can read the rest of it here.
