When North Korea’s Kim Jong-un began threatening the United States over a year ago, President Donald Trump took a firm stand and responded by telling Kim that if he dared took any action against the US or any of our allies in the region that America would utterly destroy his nation. Trumps critics wept in fear that Trump was leading the US into a costly war, but that didn’t happen and eventually, Kim backed down and reportedly making efforts at peace, although Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says North Korea is reneging on a number of things, but at least we are not at war with the Hermit Kingdom.
Now, Iran’s leader, Hassan Rouhani has started making threats against the United States, and Trump once again responded with strength and resolve not to be bullied, warning Rouhani like he warned Kim.

(Constitution.com) – In the short time that Donald Trump has been at he helm of the Oval Office’s fabled desk, there has been an incredible amount of movement in the realm of foreign relations.
Of course, the most stunning development came to us from North Korea, where dainty despot Kim Jong Un pulled an about face of epic proportions, suddenly ending six decades of hostility between the DPRK, South Korea, and the United States. This diplomatic feat not only shocked many within the Pacific Asian theater, but the United States as well.
What precedes this sudden change of heart? Really, no one knows. Trump’s Twitter tirades sparked a war of words between the two boisterous leaders, and sanctions were soon to follow, but neither development on their own were likely enough to sway the dictator leading to much speculation about what truly took place behind the scenes…
Once again, Trump’s critics have begun to weep in fear that Trump’s strong words will lead the US into a war with Iran, knowing that Russia would quickly side with Iran. Trump’s critics would prefer that he was like Obama and react by rolling over and surrendering to whatever Iran demanded. Thankfully, we have a President who won’t be intimidated like Obama was.
