Trump's Muslim speech hollow at core
Let’s get to the glaring hole at the core of the president’s oration: the absence of any reference to the central Saudi role in the radicalizing of Islam.



Worldview: Advice to president on his first overseas trip
The trip includes a stop at the Vatican, a NATO summit, and a schedule that could flummox a far more knowledgeable leader.



Worldview: The Donald's new clothes
There is a crucial difference between the Danish tale and the ongoing foreign policy gaffes in the White House, a difference that makes the current tale more frightening than funny

Worldview: Foreign policy suffers because Trump spreads fake facts
The president needs to stop tuning in to websites that mislead the public with false information that sows confusion.



Worldview: Federalism formula, U.S. role are keys to stabilizing Syria
The White House must continue to warn Putin that a centralized Syria can’t survive because Assad won’t be able to control it and the United States won’t let him gas his way to achieving it.
