Recently the extremely smart (so he tells us) but comparatively inexperienced person, elected by the very smart people who live in the USA, to be their President, announced that he was limiting ties with Qatar (a small Arab state in the Middle East) on the grounds that they were supporting terrorism.
And yet, the very next day, he authorises the sale of twelve billion US dollars worth of modern American fighters (F15s) to that small state, in which is located ...
" ... the biggest US military base in the Middle East, Al Udeid. Ten thousand American personnel are there, many of them prosecuting the air war against Isis in Syria and Iraq. "
Quoted from the UK magazine, The Spectator. (Reference: https://www.spectator.co.uk/2017/06/donald-trumps-big-trouble-in-little-qatar/ )
How did this man fool so many Americans into thinking that he was so 'smart?'
