The escalating tensions between the U.S. and Iran during our presidential election cycle is a gift to president Trump going forward. News reports of the Pentagon preparing to send an additional 120,000 troops to the area along with an Aircraft carrier group already in place as a deterrent to the Iranians. Iran recently stated that they consider all American troops to be terrorists. If American troops become involved in a combat situation whether in the middle east or even the situation in Venezuela the American people will rally behind the president as they have always done in the past.
This would make all of those who are currently campaigning to replace him practically mute on the national stage. World events will be on the front burner for the president to finally pay attention to or ignore if he so chooses. The investigation of the Russians involvement in his election has gone nowhere after two years of media coverage against him.
Congress’s desire to take down the president has not gone unnoticed by our enemies as they would use this distraction to move forward with their own agendas on the world stage. America’s internal problems must be balanced along with the responsibility of being a world power if we are to survive a society.
