The Trump the Propaganda Machine hides

Benny Johnson says I Had Dinner With the Afghan Ambassador. What He Said About the Differences Between Trump, Obama Is Stunning.

President Trump is already turning the world upside down in international diplomatic circles by taking a markedly different approach to global politics than his predecessor.

the administrations bombastic drumbeat of ‘America First’ and its swift deployment of American troops, without apology, to terrorist war zones is already proving consequential for those who live and die by the health of these troubled regions.

Enter the current Afghan Ambassador to the United States, Dr. Hamdullah Mohib. Friday night, Mohib hosted a dinner at his residence for Gold Star wives, the wives of American soldiers who gave their lives fighting in his home country.

Dr. Mohib wondered how his post could better serve those in the military community who gave so much for his country. During this Q and A, the ambassador was asked about the current American administration and how the people of Afghanistan viewed President Trump. His answer stunned those listening, not only for its candor but also for its rare insight into how the president approaches foreign policy. His full response to the question:

“I’ve personally met with President Trump at Mar-a-Lago and the president has had two phone conversations with President Ghani [The president of Afghanistan].”

“Trump would listen intently after each question, often asking follow-ups.”

Trump-era diplomacy is very much in its infancy. Yet even in his first few days as America’s chief diplomat, the president is doing what he promised; making big, big waves.

This is the story that is creeping out from under the covers. The new President is listening to those out doing to job to find out how to solve problems and move efforts forward in fruitful directions. This isn’t the kind of person described by Patterico’s Pontifications which assumes the ‘normal politician’ as the Left has defined the meme. That creates notable dissonance all along the spectrum from Patterico to his subject Tapper.
