To all those critics out there, give the President the credit he deserves and is due. Even Bret Stephens writing in the New York Times who had been one of those pundits who never seem to let up on the President had to finally capitulate.

In a very left handed complimentary fashion Bret Stephens in an op-ed entitled "Trump takes a Hostage" stated, "Decertifying the Iran deal is the right move." He also went on to say that, "We are living a nuclear nightmare on the Korean peninsula after more than two decades of optimistic diplomacy. That's a fate we ought to do everything possible to avoid with Iran." President Trump should be congratulated and applauded for taking on the two most challenging problems the world faces today-Iran and North Korea.

President Trump has been at the forefront of criticizing the Iran Deal long before many. He has been very vocal about this before he even decided he would go for the Presidency. By decertifying the deal he made good on his promises. Now it will be up to Congress to reimpose sanctions on Iran. I am optimistic they will.

By hitting Iran hard, the President has tightened the screws on North Korea as well. This was a one-two punch. Both Iran and North Korea have been in cahoots from the get go. Only this past August scientists from North Korea were in Tehran working on numerous strategies including ICBM development and advancement, outfitting ICBM's with nuclear warheads, and comparing notes for much greater Evil. It was a brilliant move on the part of the President as the pressure on North Korea intensifies. The North Koreans might actually be getting the message. The President is laying out the correct path. Either get rid of your nukes or else. Getting even this far with this psychopathic regime is a triumph no matter how you slice it. There have been other triumphs since the President took office.

One that is often overlooked by the media is the reestablishment of a warm and friendly American Israel alliance. This has drastically changed the Middle East. Israel actually feels that President Trump has their back. President Obama liked to say that he did but few in Israel felt that he did. President Trump is doing what no previous President ever did. He actually is putting a permanent American Army base in Israel. One of President Trump's greatest triumphs overall has been to bring Truth to the surface. The critics may not like his style or his methodology but they have to admit that President Trump has brought the issues of the day to the forefront.

Problems have to be addressed. He is not afraid of addressing them. For years problems like North Korea have been swept under the rug. The President in a rather short time has been successful in changing the entire narrative. Real problems are being confronted head on.I don't expect the media to change much but America is finally headed in the right direction and the world has taken notice. When I saw the President at the Israel Museum in May he got five standing ovations. He deserves another five after this past week.
