All it took was for Trump to launch 59 missiles at Russia’s closest ally in the Arab world, Syria and, voila, the villain of yesterday became the darling of America.
There is still no adequate explanation as to why Trump has shifted his stance from "America first" to "America everywhere."
But the search for a Trump doctrine is futile. Trump is not a man of doctrines, but a man of impulses. In his brief time in politics, he has been enthusiastically inconsistent on nearly every front, save some parts of tax and trade policy.
