Trump Doctrine: President Trump Meets With The Amir of Qatar Tamim Bin Hamad Al-Thani…

The effectiveness of the Trump Doctrine is never more visible than when President Trump meets with a recipient, in this case Qatar, and is able to assume the role of good cop negotiator in common cause.

President Trump participated in an expanded meeting with the Amir of Qatar Tamim Bin Hamad Al-Thani at the New York Palace Hotel. WATCH:


TRUMP DOCTRINE: ♦ President Trump forces the Gulf Cooperation Council (Gulf States, GCC) to own their stake in bringing the extremists within the Muslim Brotherhood under control. Trump doesn’t withdraw the U.S., but rather outlines the expectation that Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates and Oman take lead and pressure the Brotherhood’s enabler, Qatar. The U.S. supports the GCC and their efforts, but the ownership is directly assigned to the GCC to create the necessary peace. President Trump then takes the role of negotiator in common cause.

♦President Trump forces NATO allies to own their own stake in their own collective defense. Specifically as it pertains to Europe and their unity concern about Russia. Trump doesn’t withdraw from NATO but rather forces EU nations to own their own regional security.

♦President Trump forces Pakistan to own their stake in stability with Afghanistan. Trump demands that Pakistan influence the extremists within the Taliban to the table of negotiation. Such placement of responsibility is critical. Again, Trump doesn’t withdraw the U.S., but rather assigns responsibility to the key players. Simultaneously Trump embraces and draws in India as closer ally. This puts China in a position of influence over the behavior of Pakistan (china heavily invested there), or China runs the risk of Trump replacing the U.S./China economic relationship with India.

♦President Trump forces China to own their stake in North Korea. Trump understands that the DPRK is essentially a proxy province of China and accurately demands that China own the problem. This is new for China, they have never been held accountable for their enabling of the DPRK and the economic leverage President Trump wields is forcing them to: 1) drop the panda mask, or 2) show the world their duplicity. Again, the embraced Trump relationship with India (PM Modi) shows China (Xi Jinping) they can easily be replaced; if they choose the wrong path.

In each of these examples President Trump is using economic leverage, there are actually many more ongoing. This is the 30,000/ft understanding of the Trump Doctrine of assigning ownership to the group with the highest vested interest, and then applying the economic leverage of the U.S. toward achieving the objective.

President Trump is not poking the mouse through the maze, rather he changes the location of the economic cheese and the mouse travel changes accordingly.

I’ve never seen any geopolitical strategy so effective in my lifetime.

    And we will hear nothing from the press today except the “rocket man” nickname, and he is “threatening war on NK”.

    Apparently there just isn’t anything sexy about effective diplomacy, at least when done by a Republican president,

      You are right. But to be fair, I am not convinced any of the media analysts are bright enough to grasp what it is PDJT is doing. And even if they were able to see and understand what the strategy is, they would never ever clue us in because Trump is Hitler.

        This is what I have concluded also. The intellectual caliber of the media is sorely lacking. They don’t bother to educate themselves on topics. They are just spoon fed their talking points and they happily do what is necessary for the $$$.

          Great observation, Cold… I think it was SD who said that Trump keeps them chasing the laser dot, or something to that effect. I’d rather have them focusing on Trump’s entertaining quips. (I laughed out loud when I heard “Rocket Man” … I mean, how good THAT?) Keep them distracted while doing the really serious work pretty much out-of-sight, because if they knew what he was really doing, it might be much worse.

          Scott Adams said that no matter who the next President is, they will be “completely boring” compared to Trump. He got that right.

      It isn’t just the traditional “media.” You won’t find analysis and insight at the level of CT anywhere else, including the internet. Serious sites recognize this. Sundance’s piece on the Manafort wiretapping was up on Lucianne today with the editor comment below it calling it “Must Read of the month.” CT is the go-to site to find out what is really going on.

      I believe much of the blather in the news and opinion columns is just plain laziness. There is one newspaper columnist in particular that, on each rare occasion when I read a piece by him, by the third paragraph or so his easily discoverable factual mistakes make me think “haven’t you ever heard of Google?”

      Well done SD.

        Agreed, Trapper. I keep looking for other really insightful analyses, and I’ll tell you what… I’m just not finding it. I have to believe SOMEBODY other than SD alone is giving this stuff some serious thought, but maybe not. I recall when SD articulated the GOPe splitter strategy, I could find nothing else on it, but when SD laid it out, like most brilliant insights, it almost looked obvious. You’d think SOMEBODY would have noticed it as well, but I saw it only here, and SD laid it out with surgical precision. Amazing.

      Yep KBR. I also noted our President, although leaning forward, has his hands triangulated and a stern facial expression. He seems in an analytical but still wearily thoughtful mood to bring about a negotiation to allow a deal to close, if the parties involved are willing to get on board. If not, his willingness, and whatever has been dangled as his gratitude, could easily close up. I doubt the other parties involved want to blow the deal.

Treats everyone with respect even when inside he can’t them, because we all need to make connections. Also, did you notice he gave away the wine glass as he does not drink alcohol so I guess he will be drinking his Coca Cola! Now, we will see if the UN can get their act together for once in its creation. The League of Nations never did because each member was a greedy so n so! The world is smaller now and working together is most necessary.

      Interesting body language from Guterres, the UN Sec General.

      Guterres is a bigtime socialist.
      And I mean bigtime socialist…he’s an uber socialist.
      He was not only head of the Socialist Party in his country, Portugal, he was also president of the Socialist International party.

      So this guy is in a totally ‘indefensible’ position right now, with socialist countries self-destructing around the globe.

      Our President just pointed out how socialism always fails the people who are living under it…and pointed to the most flaming example of it right now — Venezuela.

      Socialists around the world are trying to ignore Venezuela these days.
      It makes them look bad.
      And our President just singled it out & put a magnifying glass on it.

      And here Guterres has to make nice and act all humble to our New Yorker President…and then sit down beside him

      I like how Trump will hold a wine glass during toasts, taking even a sip as necessary then giving a toast with another sip but he passes it off as he retakes his seat. The man does not drink. He had maybe 3 sips and he was done with the wine. He didn’t make a scene, he likely didn’t ask for non-alcoholic wine, but he politely participated in the toasts and gave a toast of his own.

    I very much appreciate the 30,000 foot view that Sundance gives us. I tend to get caught up in the weeds, which is not the way to understand Donald Trump’s strategery. (GWB’s malapropisms were funny yet understandable so I still use them. His performance as POTUS left a LOT to be desired but he was a globalist.)

    I look forward to watching POTUS’s plans unfold. He knows he can win if he doesn’t care who gets the credit. Asians and Arabs are very caught up in saving face and honor.

    Minority Share of Russia’s State-Owned Oil Giant From Qatar

    Quatar, under siege by Saudi Arabia, has sold its share in Rosneft to China ushering in a stronger Russian-Chinese oil alliance

    Fast forward to today, and Qatar is suffering under heavy pressure from the Saudis blockading their business, the U.S. put stringent sanctions on European banks doing business with the Russian oil and gas sector, and China is being targeted by the Trump administration on multiple fronts.

      Russia wants the price of oil to go back up.
      They desperately need it to go back up, because their economy has been suffering ever since it dropped below $70/barrel.

      China wants oil. Period.
      They need it for their own domestic consumption.
      They also want to be a bigger player in the world oil-economy, instead of just a consumer.

      So it’s no surprise that China would want to buy this share of Rosneft…or that they would over pay for it.
