President Trump Hosts U.N. Security Council for Lunch At White House…
Conservative Treehouse by Sundance
One of President Trump’s greatest strengths is his keen instincts for developing relationships as a strategic tools toward accomplishing consequential objectives. To wit, President Trump invites the entire U.N. Security Council delegation to lunch at the White House.
Now, most of us, myself included, do not think highly of the United Nations as an entity that has ever accomplished anything of worth – beyond pushing an incessant drum-beat of left-wing globalism and ridiculous pie-in-the-sky pontificating.
However, that said, the historic invitation to lunch is quite smartly full-throated use of regional
political proximity. President Trump inviting the U.N Security Council ambassadors to the White House is something Vladimir Putin, or any other leader of consequence, cannot recreate. The Ambassadors themselves acted more like a group of valedictorian school kids on an outing to where the really important people live.
Important leverage is created through personality, nuance, outline of expectations, proximity and exposure to real power.
