Probably the biggest problem with president Trump is that he wants to do what he has said. Partial government shutdown over building US-Mexico border wall and withdrawing US troops from Syria are the best examples.
There’s an old joke that the best politicians are those who never give a straight answer. Trump need to know it. He volunteered details related to pulling troops out of Syria and building a concrete wall paid for by Mexico.
Often he did the same over Twitter where the tweets are permanent.
The earlier promises of Trump have tied his hands and the forceful outcomes are disastrous. He faced immense crticisms over going back on wall details that he promised. He refused to sign appropriations bills and as an aftermath the government went into partial shutdown mode. His announcement to withdraw troops led to losing his Defense Secretary Jim Mattis. He backtracked with an undercut in foreign policy reliability.
Amid complex and shifting issues overseas Trump need to be adaptable and he should revise policies as well as promises to reciprocate situation changes.
Meanwhile, Senator Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., have some suggestions for Trump and it should be seriously given an ear. About the border security he said, “It’s just not about physical barriers. It’s about other things… The wall has become a metaphor for border security. And what we’re talking about is a physical barrier where it makes sense.”
