'Pouring Gasoline On A Smoldering Fire,' Says Admiral | Morning Joe | MSNBC

It is not a good time to "pour gasoline on a smoldering fire"; at a time after we have weakened our allies ability to trust us and to have alienated former allies.  We won't get much help from the Kurds, for instance, and other foreign countries will demand larger payments for what help they might give, then only provide half hearted help on account of Trump's erratic performances.  Many are already driven into the arms of Putin, which is exactly what Putin planned to happen by helping rump become President, then giving him secret instructions, no "back channel" needed since Trump is willing to meet with Putin publicly while keeping the matters discussed secret.  Meanwhile Trump tears the nation apart by fomenting and encouraging racist, white supremacists and nazis and extreme partisanship.  It will be remarkable indeed if the nation can survive so many slings and arrows coming from the Commander in Chief.
