Political Analyst Michael Edelman, Esq., tackles the issues that revolve about and around President Trump.
- Congress would be required to allocate more funding for new weapons. The Democrats warn that Friday’s action could lead to a dangerous arms race by freeing Russia to legally pursue even more nuclear weapons. Is Trump wrong to define Russia’s past conduct as deleterious to the U.S.? the situation by past conduct
- America’s European allies are backing the U.S. move, but are still worried about the future. The Germans advise the onus is on Russia for not complying all these years.
- Those opposing POTUS suggest withdrawal may create a schism between America and Europe, realized if/when the Europeans refuse to host any new U.S. missiles.
- House Armed Services Committee Chairman Adam Smith (D-Wash.) said in a statement. “By withdrawing from the INF Treaty instead of making an honest, good-faith effort to collectively punish Russia for its treaty violations and bring it back into compliance, we are playing into President Putin’s hands.”
- Since China and Iran need not comply with this bilateral agreement, doesn’t that leave those countries the option to build short and medium-range missiles that are banned under the INF?
- President Trump advises the only way to break the trade agreement discord between China and the U.S. if for a summit between Xi Jianping and President Trump. Are both parties interested in reaching an accommodation?
- POTUS advised on Friday there is a “good chance” he will declare a national emergency to circumvent Congress and build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. “I think there’s a good chance we’ll have to do that,” Trump told reporters in the Cabinet Room of the White House. Will he be uninvited by Pelosi?
- The Virginia Republican Party called on Gov. Ralph Northam (D) to resign if he wore blackface or dressed in a Ku Klux Klan robe while in medical school. The party issued the statement after a photo emerged from Northam’s medical school yearbook showing two people, one in a white robe and another in blackface.
- “Racism has no place in Virginia,” Virginia Republican Party Chairman Jack Wilson said. “These pictures are wholly inappropriate. If Governor Northam appeared in blackface or dressed in a KKK robe, he should resign immediately.”
- Last week negotiators from the United States led by the veteran American envoy Zalmay Khalilzad and a a founding Taliban Leader, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, announced that the framework of a peace deal between the two parties had been agreed upon. Is this an outcome long overdue or are there too many deleterious consequences in the region and in the U.S.?
