Trump’s rhetoric is a danger to the world. Higher authorities must act
Barely a day passes without a reminder of Donald Trump’s unfitness for America’s highest office. The president’s performance during the past week has plumbed new depths of irrationality and ineptitude, even by the low standards he has set since January. Trump’s random, splenetic threats of unlimited military action against North Korea and now, bizarrely, against Venezuela, have exacerbated an already dangerous situation in east Asia. They have raised the real prospect of war, either by design or miscalculation.
