Peter Robinson: The parallel again is very striking. Jimmy Carter gave a speech at Notre Dame several years ago in which he warned Americans about the inordinate fear of communism, the notion that we have to learn to live with them, that they would be around for a long time, we’d be around for a long time. And Ronald Reagan came in and simply changed the way people thought about the matter. Likewise, once again, Barack Obama… engaged in a long retreat from the rest of the world and the rest of the world got more dangerous. Along comes Donald Trump, and say what you want about his speaking style, about this or that, the leaks. All of that is secondary. He is reasserting the American place in the world.
This was an amazing interview.
