During a meeting Tuesday, the Japanese prime minister told the vice president of the United States that he supported the stance taken by the US to keep all options open for countering threats posed by North Korea. But not much can be done without the support of China.

There is much to applaud in President Trump’s decision to attack the Bashar Assad regime this week. It punished a regime that has engaged in war crimes against its own people. It upheld an international norm against chemical weapons.

There are two aspects to the Trump presidency. There is the freak show -- the tweets, the wild claims, the fake facts, the fights with anyone who refuses to bow down to him (the media, judges), the ceaseless self-promotion. EFE

Let’s say you are a Trump voter, the kind we often hear about -- an honest, hardworking American who put up with Donald Trump’s unusual behavior because you wanted a president who would stop playing Washington’s political games, bring a businessman’s obsession with action and results, and focus on the economy. How is that working out for you?

Hay dos aspectos de la presidencia de Trump. Está el “Freak Show”, los tuits, las afirmaciones disparatadas, los hechos falsos, las peleas con cualquiera que se niegue a seguirlo (los medios de comunicación, los jueces) y la autopromoción incesante. EFE

Digamos que usted votó a Trump y por lo tanto posee las características de las cuales generalmente escuchamos: estadounidense honesto y trabajador que soportó el comportamiento inusual de Trump ya que deseaba un presidente que dejara de jugar con los juegos políticos de Washington, que convirtiera la obsesión del empresario en acción y resultados y se enfocara en la economía. ¿Cómo está funcionando esto para usted?
