Twitter diplomacy

Think about this for a moment. Yesterday on Twitter the President of the US attacked the mayor of the largest city of our closest ally in the wake of a terror attack. Seriously.

Not to be outdone by his tweet yesterday, this morning Trump attacks the government of the country that is host to the largest US military base in the Middle East – on Twitter.

Quoting Jesse Berney, “The decision by Saudi Arabia and other Middle East nations to cut ties with Qatar is, to understate matters, a diplomatic situation of extreme delicacy.” Piling on on behalf of the Saudi’s in unwise, to say the least.

If you wanted to destroy the power and prestige of the US in the international order, you couldn’t do any better for trying.
