Our chief State Department expert on North Korea, Joseph Yun, is leaving at a critical time. Ivanka Trump lead the U.S. delegation to South Korea at the conclusion of the winter Olympics, briefing the South Korean president. Jared Kushner, not Secretary Tillerson, called Mexican president Pena Nieto after he and Trump had a contretemps by phone over the wall.
Instead of rising to the complexity of the presidency, Trump is shrinking the office to fit the contours of his real estate business. Family is in. Expertise and experience are out.
Where are the voters who value competence over nepotism? I hope we show up big for the November 2018 elections.
