He’s right on the money.

President Trump recently sat down for an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson in Japan, where he took an opportunity to shred Democrats for their awful policies that have destroyed so many of America’s major cities causing soaring homelessness and filth to run rampant on the streets.

He pointed to these as examples of what he is personally up against in the fight to help America regain prosperity in the aftermath of eight years of Barack Obama and radical left-wing policies, claiming the left is destroying an entire way of life.

“They’re run by very liberal people and the states are run by very liberal people … Do they really think this is okay? Because it’s not. It’s destroying their city and it’s destroying a whole way of life.” Trump said bluntly, “We may intercede.”

The exchange began with Carlson noting, “You come to where we are now, Osaka, or Tokyo, and the cities are clean; there’s no graffiti; there’s no one going to the bathroom on the street; you don’t see junkies … ”

Trump replied, “It’s very nice, isn’t it.”

Carlson pointed out, “It’s very different from our cities.”

Trump agreed, “Yup. Some of our cities.”

Carlson repeated, “Some of our cities. But New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles; they’ve got a major problem with filth.”

Trump said, “It’s very sad. It’s very sad.”

Carlson then prompted Trump, asking, “Why is that?”

Trump answered:

It’s a phenomenon that started two years ago; it’s disgraceful; I’m gonna maybe — and I’m looking at it very seriously— we’re doing some other things, as you probably notice, like some of the very important things we’re doing now; where but we’re looking at it very seriously because you can’t do that. You can’t have what’s happening, where police officers are getting sick just by walking the beat, I mean. They’re getting actually very sick, where people are getting sick; people living there are living in hell, too, although some of them have mental problems where they don’t even know they’re living that way, in fact, perhaps they like living that way. They can’ do that. They cannot ruin our cities.

And you have people who work in those cities; they work in office buildings and to get into the building they have to walk though a scene that nobody would have believed possible three years ago. This is the liberal establishment; this is what I’m fighting. I don’t know if they’re afraid of votes; I don’t know if they really believe that this should be taking place, but it’s a terrible thing that’s taking place and we may be — you know, I had a situation when I first became president, we had certain areas in Washington, D.C. where that was starting to happen. And I ended it very quickly. I said, “You can’t do that. When we have leaders of the world coming in to see the president of the United States and they’re riding down a highway, they can’t be looking at that.”

I really believe that it hurts our country. They can’t be looking at scenes like you see in Los Angeles and San Francisco. San Francisco, I own property in San Francisco so I don’t care except it was so beautiful. And now areas that you used to think as being, really something very special, you take a look at what’s going on with San Francisco and it’s terrible. So we’re looking at it very seriously. We may intercede. We may do something to get that whole thing cleaned up. It’s inappropriate. Now, we have to take the people and do something; we have to do something. And, you know, we’re really not very equipped as a government to be doing that kind of work; that’s not really the kind of work that the government probably should be doing — we’ve never had this in our lives before in our country, and it’s not only those few cities; it’s a couple of other cities

Trump concluded by stating, “At the same time, most of our cities are doing great; but if you look at some of these; they’re usually sanctuary cities; they’re run by very liberal people and the states are run by very liberal people. But the thing that nobody can figure out is, are these governors or mayors, do they really think this is a positive? Do they really think this is okay? Because it’s not. It’s destroying their city and it’s destroying a whole way of life. And it’s not our country; it’s not what our country’s all about.”

The main reason liberal policies leave such a wide path of destruction and devastation whereever they are put into practice is because they violate the invisible hand of the free market, the universal principles recognized and discussed by Adam Smith in his book “The Wealth of Nations.”

God, the Creator of the universe, made all things ruled and governed by certain principles that simply cannot be violated. When people try to violate those principles of reality, bad things happen. Like the decay happening in major cities run by progressives for decades.

Only when policies that line up with these principles are put in place do things begin to improve and function more appropriately. No system is perfect, because systems are implemented by people and we’re all imperfect beings.

However, liberal policies are a disaster, and thus if we want to see cities return to success, we must stop trying the same failed left-wing strategies and actually get back to the free market system.

Biden Appears Caught In Lie About Being Arrested In South Africa On Way to Visit Mandela

The person he was with denies there was an arrest…

Joe Biden seems to remember things that other people don’t, often times because those things never happened. In other words, Joe, like many Democrats, lives in his own world where he has never done anything wrong. On Friday, the former vice president was apparently caught in a big lie about being arrested in the 1970s in South Africa on his way to go see Nelson Mandela. Just Joe being Joe! Does the 2020 presidential hopeful think people aren’t going to fact-check the stuff he says? It would sure seem that way. LOOK: https://twitter.com/katieglueck/status/1230953852309889024?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1230953852309889024&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2020%2F02%2F21%2Fsiren-it-appears-joe-biden-has-been-lying-about-a-trip-he-took-to-south-africa-to-meet-mandela%2F From New York Times: Andrew Young, a former congressman and mayor of Atlanta who was the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations from 1977 to 1979, said that he had traveled with Mr. Biden over the years, including to South Africa. But Mr. Young said that he had never been arrested in South Africa and expressed skepticism that members of Congress would have faced arrest there. “No, I was never arrested and I don’t think he was, either,” Mr. Young, now 87, said in a telephone interview. REACTIONS: CNN’s John King called out Biden for blatantly lying about Super PACs. Joe has said he doesn’t like them, does’t want one. But now that his low-energy campaign is running short on cash, it appears his attitude might be changing. When even CNN is calling the Democrat “frontrunner” a liar, you just know there’s a problem. Also, it shows that CNN employees have probably been told to put Joe down while building up younger, hipper, cooler, more woke candidates. Just a guess. WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=56&v=ZnZkkR93lsc It takes a special kind of person (or news outlet) to lie about something when everyone can clearly see the truth. “See” the truth.

Trump Admin to Sign Peace Treaty With Taliban, Would Bring An End to Longest U.S. War

Kind of a big deal…

If Hillary Clinton defeated Donald Trump in 2016, would the United States be lining up to sign a peace treaty with the Taliban? Would negotiations with North Korea ever have taken place? Would Iranian terrorist Qasem Soleimani still be alive, plotting attacks against hundreds, if not thousands, of innocent people? Thankfully, it’s a moot point. She lost. On Friday afternoon, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made a major announcement about the Taliban in what could soon lead to the end of America’s longest war. From Politico: U.S. officials and the Taliban have reached an “understanding” that could result in a “reduction in violence” in Afghanistan, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced Friday, paving the way for an agreement later this month that would bring to an end America’s longest war. […] In a more substantial statement released by the State Department, Pompeo offered further details regarding the “extensive talks” between the two parties, which he said are intended to “facilitate a political settlement to end the war in Afghanistan, reduce United States and Allied Forces presence, and ensure that no terrorist group ever uses Afghan soil to threaten the United States or our allies.” https://twitter.com/SecPompeo/status/1230807986857226245?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1230807986857226245&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fus-to-sign-peace-agreement-with-the-taliban-next-week%2F https://twitter.com/nwadhams/status/1230810890854858752?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1230810890854858752&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fus-to-sign-peace-agreement-with-the-taliban-next-week%2F https://twitter.com/statedeptspox/status/1230808813105766400 During Trump’s visit to Afghanistan on Thanksgiving day 2019, the president of the country said some things that the liberal media won’t be so impressed with. Then again, when it comes to anything positive involving America, the MSM doesn’t really care. Such is life. Ashraf Ghani noted, “Hamza bin Laden was a big thing, but this is the biggest there is. This is the worst ever.” He added, “Osama bin Laden was very big, but Osama bin Laden became big with the World Trade Center. This is a man who built a whole, as he would like to call it, “a country,” a…
