1) Separating kids from illegal parents?
2) WW3 in North Korea?
3) WW3 in Syria?
4) WW3 in Iran?
5) Economy wrecking tariffs?
All things the #Media lost their minds over and now never discuss (because they were wrong).
Whenever Trump really steps in it in the foreign policy sphere, you can count on his staunchest defenders to immediately fall back on the lie that the only two options are a) whatever Trump is doing or b) an actual shooting war with Russia/North Korea/China/whoever— Leon Wolf (@LeonHWolf) July 16, 2018

Trump is boasting about his accomplishments with North Korea, like the recent absence of missile tests and nuclear tests. He adds, "You saw the nice letter he wrote." He concludes, "President Putin is very much into making that all happen."— Daniel Dale (@ddale8) July 17, 2018
The elite of the American press corps asked zero questions about Syria, Iran, or North Korea at yesterday's Trump-Putin press conference.— Joel B. Pollak (@joelpollak) July 17, 2018
