    What a difference from when we had a president who gave billions in unmarked bills to this nation's enemies and those who sponsored terrorism... But if we're going to stop giving money to anyone who's Anti-American, shouldn't we also cut off federal aid to New York, California, Massachusetts, and New Jersey?

    From the Daily Wire
    September 13, 2018

    Appearing with Bret Baier on Fox News’ Special Report on Wednesday, U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley spoke of the Trump Administration’s foreign policy perspective in characteristically blunt terms, asserting, “We are no longer going to give money to people who are against the U.S., or say, ‘Death to America,’ or do anything that would be anti-U.S.”

    Haley began by speaking of the sea-change in the attitude around the world engendered by the foreign policy initiatives of the president:

    I think he’s actually done a lot on foreign policy but in different ways. If you look at what he’s done with North Korea, it’s really led the international community to isolate North Korea to where they decide, they realize they have a decision to make. He led on the fact that he pulled out of the Iran deal. He’s forcing the entire world to admit the fact that Iran was not behaving properly. He’s led in Syria to make sure that chemical weapons are not being used and he’s warned against them being used again.

    Haley then turned to Trump’s attitude toward South American countries with an anti-American bent, asserting, “I think that if you look in the Western Hemisphere, which we’ve spent the last two weeks focused on, whether it is Venezuela or Nicaragua, the messages are being sent that we are not going to support dictators.”

    Then Haley extrapolated from South America to the rest of the world:

    We are no longer going to give money to people who are against the U.S., or say, “Death to America,” or do anything that would be anti-U.S. We are now going to strategically start to work with our friends, and we are no longer going to be handouts for those who go against us.

    It's such a simple concept that it's likely going to be baffling and agonizing to many politicians, as well as all of the America-haters around the world. Imagine if the major world power you're always ranting against, and acting against (politically, economically, etc) were to suddenly stop giving you handouts.

    Consequences for stupid actions and conduct should come back in style at the nation-state level.

    The last year and a half under President Trump has really highlighted how badly our "politicians" have represented this country in dealings with others. Whether in trade deals or charity. OUR interests should always be a part of any agreement.

    Hey, I've been a regular citizen for going on almost 2 years. (Retired more than 9 years, but gave up the reserve badge in '16).

    And for sure a sharp guy with lots of good insights. But I think once a cop, always a cop... at least to some extent. :)

    Hey, I was in sales & finance, and even did some time in private security, for about 12 years before I wandered into LE.

    Nikki Haley is awesome! (and yes, I do give Trump credit for this very fine choice of UN Ambassador).

    She'd be so much better than Trump. I wish she'd primary the toddler.

    Primary Trump? Not likely. She's still young though. If she continues to do her job well, she is building on her resume. I didn't like everything thing she's did as Governor, but I'd still put her in the top handful of my choices for POTUS given the current choices.

    My fear is that after Trump buffoons his way to defeat in 2020 she'll have to wait 8 years and then may not even be interested.
