For the record: Donald Trump’s full speech at the Arab Islamic American Summit in Saudi Arabia on May 21, 2017…


Trump’s Islamic-American speech focused on the goal of building a coalition of nations to “conquer extremist ideology and vanquish the forces of terrorism.” He said Middle Eastern countries cannot wait for America to take the lead. They must do it themselves. Incentive? Trump later talked about commercial development and how people would flock to their countries, which brought us to the underlying theme. Terrorism is bad for business. Stamp it out, and we all get richer together. In Trump’s closing statements, he actually thanked Saudi Arabia for their “massive investments in America.”

The reason for my cynicism? If Trump really believed in combating extremism, hate, and violence through partnership based on mutual respect and tolerance, he would apply those very same principles on the home front. Instead, Trumpism has fanned the flames of racism, sexism, and xenophobia here in America.

Trump sees “splendor” and “grandeur” in Saudi Arabia’s ancient culture. If only he were half as impressed with democracy and the Grand Canyon.


Keep your ear to the ground.

Who’s Writing?

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.

Chester

Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!
