Donald Trump's foreign policy speech earns praise in Russia


Trump's speech was more than well-received in Russia. In Moscow's Red Square, passersby speaking to CNN praised the New York tycoon. And Russian politicians from President Vladimir Putin on down have been quoted saying favorable things about the GOP presidential front-runner.



"I believe an easing of tensions and improved relations with Russia, from a position of strength only, is possible," Trump said, though he added that the United States should be willing to walk away from the negotiating table if Russia is too demanding.
The message is one that is warmly received on the streets of Moscow.
"The key thing about him is his willingness for a breakthrough in relations with Russia, maybe they won't get closer but at least there will be a dialogue," said one man said feet away from the Kremlin.
Another added, "First of all, Trump is a positive guy and he spoke about Putin in a good way. He wants positive changes in America."
Many believe that Trump and Putin would get along well on a personal level and that alone could help ease tensions between the U.S. and Russia, which have been building up over the past years.
Fyodor Lukyanov, the head of the Russian Council on Foreign and Defense Policy, said he believes Vladimir Putin would like Trump's style.
"He likes people who are frank, open and who disregard political correctness. And that is exactly the case with Mr. Trump," Lukyanov told CNN.


So much for those who think Trump would start wars. He is already making peace!


"He expresses readiness to come to terms with the Russian President instead of making conflicts with us, the way today's administration is doing," Alexey Pushkov, head of the foreign relations committee of Russian parliament said, according to the Tass news agency.

All that means is that, unlike many posting in this thread who just parrot/regurgitate tired old rhetoric, the Russians actually paid attention to and understood what the man had to say...

It is a shame so few Americans did the same.

Trump isn't even in office and he has already done more damage to US - SE Asia relations than your last 2 presidents.

I'm actually impressed, just for all the wrong reasons.

Here's an eye opening opinion for ya...

Linky

In Asia, the implications of Trump’s foreign policy would be an end to the current conception of the “Asia Pivot” as it stands, as Trump would draw back from commitments to allies. I have previously argued that the Asia Pivot should be limited, both for the sake of the United States, economically and strategically, and the region. Without a pivot, China would feel less boxed in and reactive. At the same time, a better balance of power in the region would come into being as countries like Japan, South Korea, and Indonesia step up their capabilities, leading to a firmer armed peace. There is no doubt that an advanced economy such as Japan could shoulder its defense burdens eventually if it so chose, and a strong Japan or a strong Indonesia fiercely defending their own turfs would certainly give pause to China or any other potentially aggressive power.

A country such as India, which is not dependent on the United States for its security, is already in a much better position for making its own regional security decisions. Moreover, without a carte blanche from the United States, countries in Asia would be more inclined to resolve festering disputes, rather than operating on the assumption that every inch of territory should be considered inviolable under the notion of the integrity of national sovereignty

While not fleshed out well, many of Trump’s views, if implemented through experienced advisors, could lead to some welcome changes in the world order and benefit U.S. foreign policy. At the very least, he has started a welcome debate at the highest levels of U.S. politics. Perhaps 19th century notions of balance of power and less intrusiveness in the internal arrangements of other countries are a better way to go than present attempts at liberal internationalism.



I'm actually impressed, just for all the wrong reasons.


Some of us have a higher threshold

And it works! He doesn't even mention Bush once but wants to go on and on about how much the war has cost us. Not to say bush is only ar fault before you all get your panties in a bunch, but he can't be ignored


Trump has called out Bush on several occasions for the war in the Middle East and for 911.

Wouldnt the first place you look if you wanted substance be his website?

Pick an issue that you need help with finding Trump giving substance on and I'll help you out in finding it since you are too lazy to look for your self. Instead you just regurgitate and circle around like a buzzard.


I looked on the website. I saw soundbites, not substance.


Like I said pick an issue and I'll do your leg work for you and quote substance from his website for you. Go ahead take your pick.


I have a pretty high standard. We Brits hold politicians to their election platforms so their proposals are not only spelled out in detail but they are priced and scrutinised.

Let's start with a foreign policy biggie. How is he going to convince Hollande and Merkel and Cameron and the other NATO leaders to change the organisations remit?

He makes sense.

Yeah , that's what the Germans thought in the 30s.

So, the US government is so much like Germany in the 30's that Trump would be able to become a Presidential Dictator and kill the world if he wants to? You must not know much about our government.

Not afraid.

In fact he makes sense (little bit of vomit came up).


As a country (UK) that does pay above the minimum NATO amount it is really frustrating to see other country’s (looking at you Scandinavia!) That don’t even pay that amount.

Denmark, Norway, Germany, Spain, Netherlands and Belgium should cough up the 2% minimum.

USA, France and UK seem to be the only ones meeting that!

OK I get the eastern European states still have a economy to rebuild.

But the western free loaders have no excuse.


The US, France and the UK are the leading arms manufacturers in NATO. They may be paying the lion's share but they're also making a huge profit.

They fell for the nationalistic rhetoric spouted by their dog whistle blowing leader and to me it looks like you are too ,in that respect they ended up with xenophobic madman who wanted to rule the world and so will you.

History will tell if they share any other similarities , should he become President

Trump is proposing isolationism? That's some mad hyperbole dude. Isolationists would cut off all import/export & abandon NATO/every military base anywhere but America. Frankly, I'd support it. Trump is not in any way proposing those things.

America First is NOT the same as isolationism.
Trump totally plans to deal with foreign countries.
He is just going to make sure America does not get screwed over in the process, like we have been.

Did you actually watch his speech?

Was he in a coma through the 8 years of Bush?

I love how those 8 years seemed to be just wiped off the chalk board like they never existed.

I was on the boards. All the ME experts told Bush not to invade. That the ideology of these people will bring them together in unity against America. Which is exactly what happened.

Let's just ignore the PNAC and that Chenney followed that plan almost exactly.

His whole blame Obama and Clinton is stupid.




Yeah...so Trump ignored Bush's actions. Just fair trade for every liberal including your president that blames Bush when they stub their toe. But the bottom line and the truth is that Trump isn't advocating "taking over the world" at all. In fact...he is saying the opposite. That other countries need to stand up for themselves and fight their own battles. That we need a strong military in order to defend ourselves...literally...from Russia, Muslims, etc.

I get you hate the guy. But that is kinda "difficult to chew crap". He is the choice of the Republicans and a number of Democrats (those who switched parties just to vote for Trump). He may become the President and has promised to undo all the BS that Obama has forced down the throats of real Americans.

I hope he wins...I hope he becomes President...I hope he builds the wall...I hope he puts a temporary halt to refugee terrorists coming into our country and I hope he gets a second term. In short...I hope he saves us all from the destruction and damage Obama did to our country, our military, our economy, our morals, our values and especially the truth.

Obama will go down in history as a traitor that tried to destroy America and Trump will go down as the one who saved us from the destruction. And yes, that includes YOUR destruction. I understand you aren't quite there intellectually to appreciate it but that is OK. But you will experience just how it feels to have a President shove crap down your throat as many of us have for the past "8 years of darkness".

I don't know what world you've been living in, but since WWII we haven't seen very many years of peace.


Quite the opposite. We are currently in what scholars call the "The Long Peace", where there has been an absence of war between the world's greatest powers for the longest time in human history. This started after world war 2.


Oh sorry, that war I fought 8 years ago must have been my imagination.


Which 2 of the 'greatest powers' were fighting?

Facts Trump Iraq War



There is no evidence that we could find, however, that he spoke against the war before it started, although we did find he expressed early concerns about the cost and direction of the war a few months after it started.

Others have looked, but no one else — including PolitiFact and the Washington Post Fact Checker — has been able to find any evidence to support his claims, either.

Now, BuzzFeed reports that Trump indicated his support for war in a radio interview with shock jock Howard Stern on Sept. 11, 2002 — a little more than six months before the war started. Stern asked Trump directly if he supported going to war with Iraq, and Trump hesitantly responded, “Yeah, I guess so.” We don’t know if Trump still felt the same way in March of 2003.

We do, however, know two things after having reviewed multiple news archival services in search of Trump’s position on the war: Trump had a financial interest in opposing the war in the weeks leading up to the war. The Newark Star-Ledger, New Jersey’s largest newspaper, reported on March 12, 2003 that Trump Hotels and Casino Resorts planned “to sell $485 million in junk-grade bonds this week in an effort to avoid a cash crunch later this year.” The uncertainty of war complicated Trump’s bond sale. www.factcheck.org...
