Trump’s ‘Art of the Deal’ on Syria

The Toronto Sun

Leading up to the U.S. attack on Syria, President Trump was the target of a daily barrage by the mainstream media and Democrat members of Congress demanding an inquiry into what became known as “Russia Gate,” the alleged Russian interference in the 2016 elections that helped Trump beat Hillary Clinton.

No White House briefing by Press Secretary Sean Spicer could make it to the end without reporters bringing up the alleged links between Russia and Trump’s election team.

In fact, on March 25, London newspaper Independent ran a story quoting “a former National Security Agency (NSA) analyst” warning that “Donald Trump’s presidency could be finished by Russia investigations … The administration isn’t getting away from this story.”

The same former analyst told CBC Radio, “If, not just people around him, but the president himself is facing possible indictment down the road … He could be removed from office for that, whether he wants to be or not.”

Art of the Deal

But a week is a long time in politics. Doomsday predictions of the Trump Administration now seem to be history. For example, both on Monday and Tuesday at the daily White House Press Briefings, not a single correspondent even uttered the words “Russian interference” directly or even indirectly. The entire scandal had simply vanished from American discourse.

All it took was for Trump to launch 59 missiles at Russia’s closest ally in the Arab world, Syria and, voila, the villain of yesterday became the darling of America.

If we were all waiting for the Art of the Deal, here it was.
