Home Run or Run Home?

Issue

President Trump is calling his first foreign tour a home run, but if you read some of the tea leaves you may see that others are characterizing it like a run home. There's also lots of explaining to do, domestically speaking.

Now that he's back from this historic overseas journey, reality says sometimes you win, but then again sometimes you lose. Just saying, Trump did not deliver on his previous promises, has not shown full support for the climate deal and also chastised NATO members.

Trump Trifecta Trip

Issue

President Donald Trump’s trips to the Middle East along with his audience with The Pope afterwards may become huge opportunities for healing amid his contentious positions and visits with Muslims, Jews, and Catholics leaders.
