Trump gets it half right, half wrong about his Asia trip

November 16, 2017  •  Fox News

Not since Marco Polo has a Westerner been received in Asia with such fanfare and respect as Donald J. Trump, according to President Donald J. Trump.

In an infomercial and trip report masquerading as a press conference Wednesday afternoon, President Trump continued his orgy of self-congratulation, pronouncing his 12-day trip to five Asian nations a diplomatic and economic triumph or – as he called it before leaving his last stop – "epic."

"America is back," the president said, drawing his own bottom line on the results of his tour of the newly coined Indo-Pacific, his longest foreign trip to date.

Trump and a Troubled Ally

November 7, 2017  •  City Journal

In the dank, cramped confines of Tunnel Number Three, deep under the village of Panmunjom, beads of water drip onto my nose and shoulders from the craggy rock just above my head. As I wind my way along a mile of ever-narrower passageway some 250 feet below ground, I'm grateful for the hardhat that my South Korean guide has provided. At the tunnel's end are a steel door and a concrete barricade. I stare through the door's small square window to a second door—the one that leads to North Korea.

Trump? That is not an easy question to answer.

President Trump is in Seoul, the second stop on his five-nation, 11-day Asian tour and the mutual compliments were flowing.

Caliphate of the Mind

November 2, 2017  •  City Journal

The Islamic State's self-declared caliphate may be all but dead and buried in Iraq and Syria, but it thrives in the minds of the frustrated faithful like Sayfullo Saipov, the 29-year-old Muslim immigrant from Uzbekistan, who self-radicalized in America, police say, and decided a year ago to bring the jihad home.

NYC terror attack: Halloween horror would have been much worse without top notch NYPD

October 31, 2017  •  Fox News

The Halloween assault in Lower Manhattan was straight out of the ISIS playbook. Ever since October 2010, when Al Qaeda published the second issue of its online magazine Inspire, jihadi leaders have been urging the faithful to turn ordinary cars and trucks into killing machines to "mow down the enemies of Allah."

On Tuesday in New York, Sayfullo Saipov, 29, a green-card holder from Uzbekistan in Central Asia and resident of Florida, responded to the call.
