Maybe Trump is trying to turn an enemy into a friend


Sunday, July 29, 2018

Lincoln encouraged us to follow "the angels of our better natures." Today, too many politicians and others are encouraging us to follow the demons of our worst natures.

Also, Lincoln said that the best way to destroy your enemy is to turn him into a friend. Similarly, Jesus said that we should love our enemies.

To give Mr. Trump the benefit of millions of doubts, maybe that' s what Mr. Trump is trying to do by alienating our allies while trying to make friends with Russia and North Korea. If that's really what he is attempting, if it is, then I wish him great success. After all, the bible does say, " A little child shall lead them."
