The message is to people like us, to western democracies, you better be careful because we, the unified Korean, North Korean people, will defeat you. We have nukes. Be afraid of us. So what is the message Donald Trump is trying to send by rolling tanks down Constitution Avenue? Who is that message to?
It’s certainly not to tyrants because he loves tyrants. He loves tyrants. It’s not to Putin. It’s not to Kim Jong Un, not to the Saudis. Is it to our friends, to western democracies who he doesn’t particularly like, or is it to us? Is it to the resistance in this country. I’ve got tanks. I have this military armada. The message is a threat. But it’s always a threat when you roll out your military. But it’s to whom is the threat, and I suspect that the threat is to his fellow Americans. And I hate to say that, but I think that Donald Trump styles himself a tyrant, not a defeater of tyrants.
