ANALYSIS/OPINION:

In the forming of President George H.W. Bush’s administration, budget director nominee Richard Darman indicated in a response during a Senate confirmation how he would know if there was a tax increase: “[I]f it looks like a duck, it’s a duck.” The recent Trump agreement made with North Korea in Singapore passes the ‘duck test.’ It is a terrible agreement that sacrifices key Asian allies and brings nothing to the safety of the world.

President Trump was shunked and hoodwinked, and his statement when he disembarked from Air Force earlier this week is simply a modern-day replay of Neville Chamberlain’s “peace for our time” speech following the 1938 Munich Agreement with Hitler. All Mr. Trump gets from this is press from fawning TV and papers.

Today the G7, the free world is in a significantly worse position than before.
