GOP is worried about Trump

The GOP Insider Brief is a newsletter emailed to Republicans and the media. I am on distribution and their headline today is how President Trump is harming US relations around the world.

If they know that, cannot the Republican Party and Congress do something to rein him in?

For crying our loud, the President should be impeached.

There has been much focus on Donald Trump's erratic foreign policy — the outlandish positions, the many flip-flops, the mistakes. But far more damaging in the long run might be what some have termed the Trump effect — the impact of Trump on the domestic politics of other countries. That effect appears to be powerful, negative and enduring. It could undermine decades of American foreign policy successes. 
Look at Mexico. For decades, this was a country defined by fiery anti-Americanism. Founded by a radical revolutionary movement, fueled by anger against American imperialism and high-handedness, Mexico would rarely cooperate with Washington. Since the 1990s, the landscape has shifted, indeed almost reversed. Thanks to intelligent leadership in Mexico City and consistent bipartisan engagement by Washington, the United States, and Mexico have become friendly neighbors, active trading partners, and allies in national security."

  1. Huckabee Defends Colbert Rant on Trump on Free Speech Grounds

    Former Arkansas Republican Gov. Mike Huckabee took fellow conservatives to task on Twitter Saturday over calls to punish late night talk show host Stephen Colbert for a harsh, and, at times, crude, rant he gave on his show Monday night towards President Donald Trump, The Hill reported.

    "Calls for FCC to punish Colbert are misguided-don't let gov't decide when speech is ok-let YOU decide by not viewing/buying," Huckabee tweeted, emphasizing the First Amendment's right to free speech.
