With great concern, I read “The Latest: US orders Russia to close SF consulate” (Web, Aug. 31). The fact that the Trump administration gave Russia only 48 hours to close its consulate in San Francisco and other properties in Washington and New York is completely unacceptable. This unwise decision perfectly shows how this administration is implementing “infant diplomacy” in a way that is more suitable to North Korea than the United States.

It seems to me that in order to prove that Russia has nothing to do with his election, President Trump recklessly took a strong line against Russia, forgetting that country helps to fight the Islamic State in Syria. I really hope that the Trump administration will learn from its mistakes, but so far, the president seems to have no regard for peaceful conflict resolutions.
