Why Our Enemies Might be Trying to Help Make Donald Trump Look Good

Since Donald Trump’s election in 2016, a lot hasn’t seemed right. The fact that such a horrific human being could ascend to the highest office in our land is still an embarrassing disgrace.

However, something else more recently hasn’t seemed right — our enemies seemingly trying to make Donald Trump look good.

In particular, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.

We’re looking at a situation now where our allies are more alienated from the United States than they have been in decades, while countries such as Russia, China, and even North Korea seem to be doing things that aim to boost the standing of this “president.”

Then again, why wouldn’t they?

As I just said, Trump’s doing a fantastic job at alienating our allies from us. Meanwhile, here at home, every day he’s in office is another day where the country becomes more polarized and divided than I’ve seen it in my 37 years on this Earth.

An incompetent, unhinged, inept buffoon like Trump being “president” is exactly what our enemies want.

After all, if they can’t bring us down themselves, why not do whatever they can to help elect — then re-elect — a fool like Trump who could destroy us from within?

Especially when they know they can do little things to make Trump look good, all while actually playing him because they’re fully aware that he’s an idiot who has no idea what he’s doing. All they need to do is flatter his ego, use big words he doesn’t understand, play to his insecurities and he’s going to believe whatever they tell him just as long as he thinks whatever he’s agreeing to with them will ultimately make him look good.

And, yes, for those who might be wondering, if/when Trump meets with Kim Jong-un, I do believe the United States will be at an intellectual disadvantage.

If you’re an enemy of the United States, then you definitely want Donald Trump as “president.” The last thing China, Russia, or North Korea wants is an intelligent and competent individual leading this country.


Which means it’s in their best interests to do what they can to try to help Trump’s image heading into a midterm election where his party could lose power and just a couple of years removed from his possible re-election.

Just like the majority of Americans, and most of our allies, know there’s a vested interest in making sure Trump’s time spent in office is as brief as possible, I believe our enemies realize that the longer he’s allowed to call the White House home, the better it is for all of them — not the United States.

This is all just my opinion — but I also don’t think it’s an idea that’s too far-fetched, either. Some “food for thought” as the meeting with Kim Jong-un approaches, with midterms being just around the corner and Donald Trump’s potential re-election just a couple of years away.
