Rallying around a proven militarist as the vehicle for opposing war and empire is ridiculous, and continuing to do this in 2023 is discrediting.
Trump may have had some anti-war impulses, but once in office, Trump proved weak, stupid and easily manipulated.
To be fair, bad as Trump was, Biden has proven worse.
Ascribing to Trump any geo-political acumen misses the point. His only goal concerned his TV ratings. His profession was entertainment, and he was not bad at it, which is why he won the 2016 Presidential election.
