Trump sounds bellicose now, but he's a bully. He always sounds bellicose, until it comes time to put up or shut up. At that point, he always shuts up. Had Obama confronted Trump directly and personally on the birther nonsense, had he called Trump out by name and insisted they meet face to face to discuss the issue, in public, in front of cameras, Trump would have folded like a cheap suit. His hardcore racist supporters might not have been discouraged, but Trump would have simply refused to show, or been so obsequious in person to Obama, the whole issue would have disappeared.
"Somebody under the command of that country made a mistake," Trump says of the Iran drone shooting. "I find it hard to believe that it was intentional," he adds. Trump says he's not worried about his own aides maybe gunning for war, then doubles down on not wanting Mideast wars.— Anne Rumsey Gearan (@agearan) June 20, 2019
