Away from the commotion of the ongoing attempt at a coup d’etat of the current President by being conducted by democrats and the left wing media, Donald Trump is getting things don and acting as the real leader of the free world. Upon his arrival in the Middle East, Trump shook hands with Saudi King Salman rather than bow and scrape as did barack obama. Despite the prediction that Trump would not be welcome in the Arab world, Trump received the rock star treatment.

The great thing is that this is no barack obama apology for the US tour. This is business.

Trump did what barack obama would not and could not do- actually speak of Islamic terrorism.

Obama began his address by focusing on western guilt:

More recently, tension has been fed by colonialism that denied rights and opportunities to many Muslims, and a Cold War in which Muslim-majority countries were too often treated as proxies without regard to their own aspirations. Moreover, the sweeping change brought by modernity and globalization led many Muslims to view the West as hostile to the traditions of Islam.

In contrast, Trump began by declaring that “Muslim countries must take the lead in combating radicalization. He said that he was not there to lecture to others about how to worship, but to call for unity “in pursuing the one goal: … to conquer extremism and vanquish the forces that terrorism brings with it every single time,” singling out “young Muslim men and women.”

Trump went further, taking on “terrorism and the ideology that drives it.” He listed recent terror attacks in the U.S. and around the world, and noted that “the deadliest toll has been extracted from the innocent people of Arab and Muslim nations.” The optimism of the region, he said, was “held at bay by bloodshed and terror.” And he added: “There can be no co-existence with this violence.”

He called on the Muslim world to take on the terrorists:

“Drive them out. Drive them out of your places of worship. Drive them out of your communities. Drive them out of your holy land and drive them out of this earth,” he said, during his speech in Saudi Arabia on Sunday.

Trump promised that America would serve as a willing partner to combat terrorism but that they had to take the lead.

“America is prepared to stand with you in pursuit of shared interests and common security, but the nations of the Middle East cannot wait for American power to crush this enemy for them,” he said.

He described the cost of terrorism afflicting young Muslim men and women, as well as in countries around the world, urging all leaders to work for peace in the Middle East. He specifically called out terrorist attacks by name in the United States and Europe, calling them a “tragedy of epic proportions.”

“Terrorists do not worship God, they worship death,” Trump said.

Further, he is going to do something obama failed to do- finish ISIS. Trump has given military commanders the freedom to “annihilate” ISIS:

Defense Secretary James Mattis said President Donald Trump has empowered commanders to more aggressively target the Islamic State as part of a new approach to “annihilate” the militant group.

The president has “delegated authority to the right level to aggressively and in a timely manner move against enemy vulnerabilities,” Mattis said during a press conference Friday at the Pentagon.

The commander in chief, who ordered a review of the conflict after taking office, has also “directed a tactical shift from shoving ISIS out of safe locations in an attrition fight to surrounding the enemy in their strongholds so we can annihilate ISIS,” Mattis added. “The intent is to prevent the return home of escaped foreign fighters.”

The defense secretary, a retired Marine general, appeared alongside Joint Chiefs Chairman Marine Gen. Joseph Dunford — who also Friday was reappointed to another two-year term — and Brett McGurk, the State Department’s special presidential envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIS to present an updated plan for Operation Inherent Resolve, the military’s name for the fight against ISIS.

You will remember that as recently as 2014 obama “had no plan” for ISIS. You will also remember that eventually the obama plan was a three year plan to be done with ISIS- meaning ISIS would be done in 2017. Meaning that someone else would have to finish the job. Meaning that “no drama obama” was sweeping it under the rug. Trump is the antithesis of obama. He’s getting the job done.

This is a sea change and the air smells greatly refreshing.
