Many people saw Doug Jones’ win in Alabama as a swing for voters back the left, threatening the Republicans in Congress and ultimately President Trump’s chances at re-election in 2020. However, our allies across the Atlantic seem to think otherwise.

Senior diplomats in the United Kingdom have made it clear that they think President Trump is the most likely to be elected in 2020. According to The Telegraph, a reputable British news source, the problem with the Democratic candidates is two-fold; they are either “too old”, or “lacking in the name recognition needed to defeat Mr. Trump.”

The “too old” candidates the diplomats seem to be referencing are possible candidates like Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders. And it seems that the only two that may have the name recognition are the former Vice-President and the Senator from Vermont. The only other possible candidate that has the name recognition is Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Ma.), however, the Washington Post places her odds at running low, especially if Sanders runs again.

The Telegraph also notes that President Trump has seemed to relax on some of the more radical policies that got him elected. He seems to have pulled back on threatening to ignore NATO agreements. This is coupled with his President Trump’s recent move to allow military weapons to go to Ukraine to help repel the Russian insurgency into Crimea and eastern Ukraine that began in 2014.

President Trump has also relaxed on his plan to completely pull out of Afghanistan. Instead he has revised the US’ mission to help better combat the Taliban in the country. This builds of Trump’s existing successful strategy that has reduced ISIS territory by 98% since he took office.

This means that the Prime Minister Theresa May and the Royal Family will have to work hard to build a friendly relationship with the Trump Administration but it will be around for seven more years.

    Theresa May has a lot of fence mending to do. Because she has treated Trump execrably and nearly flushed the special relationship down the toilet, all for the sake of undoing Brexit in her EU negotiations. No British Prime Minister has treated the US President with such disdain since Stanley Baldwin and that’s when the British had an empire that spanned the globe.

    Personally, I don’t give a good g0dd@mn about the f—ing royal family. I think Brits should seriously consider forming a democratic republic and retiring the royals completely. Give the buggers all the castles and palaces and land and jewels and artwork, etc. and cut them loose. If they need income, they can put Markle back to work as an actress and stick Middleton on the catwalk.

      The special relationship with Britain was dissolved Day 1 of the Obama Regime. Yet the UK Politicians were & still are enamored all through the worst 8 years of his destructive Presidency. The thought of another 8 yrs with Hillary was quite frankly frightening. Thankfully Middle America woke up in time. Pres. Trump was and is still up against not only Democrats, but his own Party old timers and of course the Mainstream Media. Worse yet we are now finding out the DOJ, FBI, DNC, Hillary campaign and more than likely WH inner circle created that fake Dossier in an attempt to impeach a duly elected President. They ALL must have an awful lot to engage the highest levels of government.

      But you are correct…Britain needs to purge themselves of Royalty. Quite frankly the snubbing or banning of Pres.Trump by the idiot radical London Mayor, the idiot Prince Harry BBC Obama Interview and Royalty concern of whether to invite Trump to a questionable Prince/2nd rate, virtually unknown, American motor mouth actress, Royal Wedding is laughable. I think Britain has much more serious problems to worry about. President Trump should not lower himself by attending. We would rather he be safe at home here.

    Only voter fraud by Democrats could stop Trump at this point. There is a reason that Blue States are fighting BOTH voter ID AND voter fraud investigations, and there is only ONE reason for that.

  • Had the Republican Elites gone after Roy Moore with a viable candidate other than one appointed by a disgraced governor Doug Jones would be toast. The Roy Moore vote was more anti-establishment vote than a repudiation of Trump. I do not see Jones as a Pelousi Democrat nor a Bernie Sanders look alike.. IF he works across both isles he will do well BUT he will have a time defending his seat when he comes up for re-election.
    BTY has anyone heard anymore about Roy’s teenage skirt chasing after all the fuss ? No I didn’t think so,. The Elites accomplished what they wanted to with lies and misinformation.

      Be assured, Doug Jones will vote EXACTLY as Schumer orders him too. Just like Donnally, Manchin, Heitcamp et al.

    Trump’s ISIS strategy hasn’t “reduced ISIS territory by 98%” … read sources more widely. ISIS’s territory in Iraq/Syria has been reduced significantly, about HALF OF THAT since Trump took office. But the significance is particularly the time frame in which it has happened, BECAUSE he changed the rules of engagement to allow the military to control operations rather than micromanaging from the WH like Obama did. I find it problematic when partisans take information and craft it to create an impression that isn’t exactly true … unnecessarily … because the truth itself is sufficient.
