Trump was odious but had some good policies... and now they are being undone

Make no mistake: Donald Trump is an odious individual!

However Trump was the man of the hour as the Leader of The Free World, with his re-energising of America’s military, economy, southern border protection and verging on US energy-self-sufficiency – all things now being undone / undermined by Joe Biden, the morally-corrupt mainstream media, and the oligarchical, anti-democratic big tech companies the likes of Facebook, Twitter, Google, etc.

Trump was ridiculed when he berated EU countries for their lack of military spending, and their simply inane dependence on Russian energy.

To their credit (and to Biden’s shame) it was EU countries initially coming to the fore with the massive squeezing of Russia’s economy after Putin’s heinous invasion of Ukraine.

Now how is the progress of that massive US carrier battle fleet, ordered by Joe Biden to sail into the now-Red China militarily-dominated South China Sea?

And will America’s naval might be parked between Communist Red China and Western-orientated, democratic Taiwan?
