Several days ago I posted on Marc A. Thiessen’s defense of 10 policies by Trump in WaPo. I must now credit him with today on New Year’s Eve in the same venue publishing a column “The 10 worst things Trump did in 2019.” Good for him, some balance after all. I agree these are all bad things, although I disagree with some of his analysis of them, with a few caveats especially on a couple of the foreign policy items. However, I shall just list them with Thiessen’s conclusion.
10. He ridiculously claimed “Our country is FULL”
9. He used anti-Semitic tropes to attack his enemies.
8. He said the Soviet Union was right to invade Afghanistan and congratulated China on the 70th anniversary of the Communist takeover.
7. He lost a needless government shutdown.
