Things are rapidly changing in the geopolitical landscape under President Trump. The days of our nation being rudderless are finally over, and the course our new president has set is taking us into uncharted and exciting territory.
Instead of sitting idly by as the world burns, our president is proactively shining a light on the darkest corners of our world, making the first few months of his presidency more productive that the eight years of Obama’s feckless leadership.
President Trump’s recent display of strength in Syria sent the world a strong message that America is back, and our military might is now being deployed to face another foe causing unrest in the world.
North Korea’s repeated displays of nuclear missiles testing have sought to provoke the United States into a response, and now Trump is putting Kim Jong Un on notice.
A U.S. Navy strike group will be moving toward the western Pacific Ocean near the Korean peninsula as a show of force, a U.S. official told Reuters on Saturday, as concerns grow about North Korea’s advancing weapons program.
Earlier this month North Korea tested a liquid-fueled Scud missile which only traveled a fraction of its range.
The strike group, called Carl Vinson, includes an aircraft carrier and will make its way from Singapore toward the Korean peninsula, according to the official, who was not authorized to speak to the media and requested anonymity.
“We feel the increased presence is necessary,” the official said, citing North Korea’s worrisome behavior.
Former president Obama allowed the situation with North Korea to escalate by refusing to address it, and now the burden of cleaning up the mess has passed to President Trump.
In deploying the Navy strike group, Trump has demonstrated a decisiveness and fortitude that greatly differs from that of his predecessor. This action signals a fundamental shift for not just America, but for the whole world.
South Korea appears to approve of this demonstration of military support, as Trump spoke with the country’s leader days prior to this decision.
Under this new leadership, we may finally see true change for the better around the globe. Time will tell, but all signs point to a new America that is reasserting its dominance as the leader of the free world.
