James Mattis, Secretary of Defense attended a security conference in Singapore and had to assure other nations that the U.S. is still in the game. Trump may think it is a cute tactic to keep others off balance when negotiating but he obviously still does not and likely never will understand the concept of working WITH other nations. He has not seen the benefits of stability.

Mattis was responding to questions at a conference in Singapore about US leadership and commitment to a rules-based international order, in the wake of Donald Trump’s announcement that his administration will leave the Paris climate change accord, putting the country in the company of only Nicaragua and Syria.

“As far as the rules-based order, you know, obviously we have a new president in Washington DC,” Mattis said at the event organised by the International Institute for Strategic Studies. “We’re all aware of that. And there is going to be fresh approaches taken.”

Mattis tried to calm concerns of others attending the conference.

“Yet despite the enormous admiration allies have for Mattis, every question was some version of, ‘How can we believe you when the president talks and acts so differently?’ added Schake, who was a senior defense official in the Bush administration.

Between the Iraq war, the financial crisis and now Trump's chaos, it's starting to look like conservatives are just incapable of governing a democracy. If the economy takes a dive in the next 12 months, which is looking increasingly likely, the Republicans are going to be in the shitter for years. Pity.

There is a lag in voter response to the disaster that is this president. Every hour he tweets insults to another ally or invites another dictator to the WH. It is an ongoing circus of embarrassment with the withdrawal from the Paris Accords and his insults to the London Mayor the most recent examples.

Mayors and governors across the country are ignoring him and moving forward by letting the rest of the world know that he may be the president but he does not reflect their views. Every good movement requires an enemy to rally the followers and Trump has done more to organize the left than anyone since, well, name any Republican president in recent history, Nixon etc. etc.

After all his fairy godmother Putin won't always be there to watch his back and rig his elections.
