Trump's speech was void

Trump tried out for cheerleader last evening. The team cheered, some people in the stands clapped, while the majority of American voters stayed home and sat on their hands. (Is that fact, fiction, or folklore? You be the judge.)

From a foreign policy perspective, Foreign Policy Journal reported that the speech was an error by omission. Otherwise, it was void of meaningful information that is usually included by Presidents.

"FP’s Dan De Luce writes, “the inward-looking speech did not lay out any foreign policy vision, and unlike his predecessors, he did not reaffirm America’s role as leader of the free world. Trump’s hour-long speech contained no reference to Russia’s hacking of the U.S. election, its invasion of Ukraine and seizure of Crimea, China’s actions in the South China Sea, or the thousands of U.S. troops deployed in wars in Afghanistan, Syria, and Iraq.”

Trump is empty of substance that matters. However, he will assure that in his second term, he will have more details.

The Trump is empty
