Trump would rather destroy American credibility than admit that something Obama did is working

“He doesn’t want to certify the Iran deal for more domestic reasons than international ones,” said Vali Nasr, dean of the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies. “He doesn’t want to certify that any piece of the Obama strategy is working.”
"The occasion during which Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called Donald Trump a f#$%ing moron, was a meeting where Trump looked at a graph showing the number of US nuclear weapons, and declared that he wanted to put the US back at the top by building 68,000 new warheads—ten times what we currently have. Not because we need the weapons. Because Trump didn’t like being at “the bottom of the curve” on the graph."
"Clearly, Tillerson’s declaration was well-earned. But handling Donald Trump with kid gloves and scrambling to find ways to work around his temper tantrums is putting the nation, and the world, at constant risk."
=================================That is certainly not good news. If we are at risk then something has to be done to quell the fear and get through to Trump that he needs to change course on what he wants to do. Why doesn't he understand that Obama's work should be duly recognized by him and instead work on ways of augmenting that work other than trying to find ways to destroy it.
