In a lame attempt to disgrace President Trump, Venezuelan minister, Jorge Arreaza, Compared America’s current president to the former Ronald Reagan.
America has seen a few Presidents since Ronald Reagan was in office and not one, either republican or democrat, can say they did a better job. Therefore the comparison between Trump and Reagan is no more an insult than comparing Trump to President Washington.
Foreign dignitaries are spewing the same BS that the American democrats are and have absolutely no evidence to back this childish claim that President Trump is detrimental to the US. In reality, America needs another Reagan and if that comes in the form of Donald Trump then so be it.
Jorge Arreaza said afterward that he was struck by Trump’s idea of “restoring” Venezuelan democracy.
Arreaza called the suggestion “racist and supremacist theory” and a “return to the Cold War.”
“For a moment, we didn’t know if we were listening to President Reagan in 1982 or President Trump in 2017,” Arreaza said, according to Agence France-Presse.
Trump told the UN that he is “prepared to take further action if the government of Venezuela persists on its path to impose authoritarian rule on the Venezuelan people.”
In 1982, Reagan addressed the British Parliament, warning Cold War foes that Soviet Leninism would be “left on the ash heap of history.”
Arreaza later jabbed again at Trump, saying he sounded like a military general instead of a diplomat.
Clearly Jorge Arreaza needs a history lesson if he believes being likened to Ronald Reagan is an insult. When it comes to American history surrounding previous presidents, Ronald Reagan is at the top of the list as far as success is concerned. The proper comparison regarding insult would have been better if compared to the pathetic presidency of Bill Clinton.
