Fair Media Assessment on Trump, Finally!

After persistent media witch-hunting, there is some respite for the American President, Mr Donald Trump, with a CNN report declaring he passed his first test on the global stage.

To me, the highlight of Mr Trump’s recent visits was his emphatic message that both Israel and Palestine must strike a compromise for peace and progress.

Calling terrorists “evil losers” and some plain-speaking with NATO were characteristic of Mr Trump, consistent with his earlier stand on the issues.

But whether his first international visit as President was a reassertion of American leadership is debatable. He is presiding over a fading superpower, handing the status out on a platter to China amid challenges within the U.S. over his  suspect equations with Russia.
