Obama Hero For Talking To Dictators, Trump Criticized For Talking To Taiwan [VIDEO]
Vice President-elect Mike Pence spoke with George Stephanopoulos Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.” As he was talking with George, the conversation turned to Trump’s recent phone call from Tsai Ing-Wen, President of Taiwan, and the heat he seems to be taking for speaking with the leader of this nation with which we have not had an official relationship since 1979. Apparently, we didn’t want to upset Communist China which thinks Taiwan is theirs. But as always, Trump does not care what precedent says. He takes care of business and is welcoming all reasonable nations to the table.
Vice President-elect Pence said, “We’ll deal with policy after January the 20. This was a courtesy call and plus I have to tell you, George, it’s a little mystifying to me that President Obama can reach out to a murdering dictator in Cuba in the last year and be hailed as a hero for doing it and President-elect Donald Trump takes a courtesy call from a democratically elected leader in Taiwan and it’s become something of a controversy. I think the American people appreciate the fact that our president-elect is taking calls from and reaching out to the world and preparing on day one to lead America on the world stage.”
This excellent point made by our new Vice President is exactly why Trump/Pence was elected. We are tired of leaders who grovel embarrassingly before dictators and tyrants, apologizing for who America is. Good riddance to Obama and his low opinion of our nation. And a warm welcome to Trump, who is showing more and more every day that he is the man with the skills and the attitude for the job. Inaugural Day can’t come soon enough.
