MAKE AMERICA AN ADMIRED LEADER AGAIN
While some of Trump’s actions can be reversed, friends and foes have lost confidence in America’s will to meet its commitments.
Cast-off commitments range from Cuba to trade agreements. Trump is abandoning America’s preeminent role in world affairs. Foreign affairs experts call Trump’s antics “incoherent” and “horrifying.”
This week, European leaders are trying to save the Iran nuclear deal from Trump. If that deal fails, it will inflame conflicts in the volatile region that could end in war.
Next is the North Korean summit on nuclear arms. Last year, Trump called the North Korean leader “little Rocket man” whose country he would “totally destroy.” Today, Kim Jong-un is “very honorable,” says our (not so) “Great Leader.”
Trump is approaching these perilous decisions handicapped by a decimated State Department, a National Security Council in flux (again), and no noticeable inclination to learn.
His only consistency has been his irrepressible “bromance” with Putin. Putin can attack our elections, avoid sanctions, and be complicit as Assad kills children. Trump turns the other cheek.
— contain Trump by rejecting Pompeo as Secretary of State and enforce Russian sanctions
— press Trump for clarity on goals and justifications for actions
Walden’s Silence Makes Him Complicit!
Vote Him Out!
**ACTION 1: Call Complicit Greg Walden and our Senators**
SAMPLE SCRIPT for Trump Enabler Greg Walden:
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent and voter from [city], Oregon, [zip code]. I’d like to express my outrage over Trump’s foreign policy. He is uninformed and has abdicated America’s preeminent role in world affairs. He hasn’t enforced Russian sanctions. He must be reigned in. Please tell Mr. Walden that it’s well past time to put country before party and do his job! He MUST 1) demand coherent international goals and justifications for actions and 2) take steps to enforce Russian sanctions. The whole world is watching. Thank you.”
SAMPLE SCRIPT for Senators Merkley and Wyden:
“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent and voter from [city], Oregon [zip code]. I am calling to thank you for your opposition to the Pompeo nomination. I’d also like to express my strong disapproval of Trump’s foreign policy. He is uninformed and has abdicated America’s preeminent role in world affairs. He hasn’t enforced Russian sanctions. He must be reigned in. Please 1) demand coherent international goals and justifications for actions and 2) take steps to enforce Russian sanctions. Thank you.”
**ACTION 2: It’s Time To Get Out The Vote**
