“On The Holmes Front” with Frank Holmes
The American people loved President Donald Trump’s speech to the United Nations on Tuesday morning, where he slapped down dictators, terrorists, and the dictators of banana republics.
Unfortunately, left-wing Democrats had more in common with Islamic terror-sponsors and European socialists than 80 percent of real Americans. They’re backing Iran, not Trump.
On Tuesday, Trump said if Kim Jong Un didn’t stop threatening to nuke our country, he and his cronies would face “total destruction.” He even humiliated the North Korea leader by calling him “rocket man.”
He said former President Barack Obama’s deal to reward Iran as it pursues nuclear weapons is “an embarrassment” to our country.
And he looked the leaders of the world in the eye and said something they hadn’t heard from a U.S. “leader” in way too long: “I will always put American first – just like you, the leaders of your countries, will always and should always put your countries first,” he said.

That American people love having a president who stands up for their country instead of apologizing for it. A CNN poll found that 78 percent of Americans had a positive reaction to Trump’s straight-talking speech, and 69 percent said Trump’s policies would move America in the right direction.
Take that, CNN!
But how did left-wingers describe this speech, supported by 8 out of every 10 Americans?

“Really out of place” and maybe even “weakened America!”
Democrats’ PR firms had them use the same words and phrases in their Hate Trump statements to maximize the damage.
“I thought it was very dark, dangerous,” Hillary Clinton told late-night host Stephen Colbert on Tuesday. Trump’s plain speaking was “not the kind of message that the leader of the greatest nation in the world should be delivering.”
Clinton, who was on the show to promote her book What Happened and explain away her second presidential election loss, was eager to describe exactly what she would have said if she were president.
“We view this as dangerous to our allies, to the region and even to our country. We call on all nations to work with us to try to end the threat caused to us by Kim Jong Un,” she said.
That’ll have the Dear Leader shaking in his boots!
“Your first approach should always be diplomatic,” Hillary droned on.
But this isn’t our first approach to North Korea. Her husband blew that one when he gave them $4 billion and two nuclear reactors in 1994 in exchange for a promise to end its nuclear weapons program.
However when Trump tries to clean up her mess, she bashes him for it. That’s chutzpah – and she’s not the only one who’s got it.
Rep. Barbara Lee of California – the only person to vote against retaliating against the Taliban after 9/11 – said that Trump’s speech was nothing but “dangerous rhetoric” that represented a complete “abdication of values.” She tweeted:
Dangerous rhetoric & abdication of values from Pres Trump at #UNGA. Congress must stand by the Iran deal & work to deescalate tensions w/ NK

Diane Feinstein, the far-Left senator from California, accused Trump – not the Ayatollah or Kim Jong Un – of wanting to start World War III:
The goals of the United Nations are to foster peace and promote global cooperation. Today, the president used it as a stage to threaten war. Trump’s bombastic threat to destroy North Korea and his refusal to present any positive pathways forward on the many global challenges we face are severe disappointments.
The word must have gone out to use the word “bombastic” for this speech – like Democrats were told to call Trump “cruel” for deporting illegal aliens.
The foreign minister of socialist and Islam-embracing Sweden, Margot Wallstrom also called Trump’s speech “bombastic.”
- Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright said Trump’s speech “weakened America”;
- Obama’s Secretary of Defense, Leon Panetta, said Trump’s rhetoric was “really out of place when you’re talking to the world leaders in the United Nations. Any miscalculation, any provocative act could suddenly send us into a war”; and
- Chris Coons, D-Delaware, said, that “threatening to walk away from the Iran deal… is exceptionally unhelpful.”
The only people more outraged by Donald Trump’s speech were the terrorist leaders he called out.

Trump’s tough talk hit Iran so much that they demanded he tell them he’s sorry for it.
That’s right, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani demanded that Trump apologize for offending the largest state sponsor of terrorism on the planet.
Trump’s speech was “extremely offensive to the people of Iran,” Rouhani said. “And before anything, we are waiting for Mr. Trump to issue an apology to the people of Iran.”

Yeah, good luck with that.
Iran’s foreign minister, Javad Zarif, got in on the act, too, tweeting:
Trump's ignorant hate speech belongs in medieval times-not the 21st Century UN -unworthy of a reply. Fake empathy for Iranians fools no one.

That’s pretty rich coming from a man whose country stones women to death and cuts off thieves hands in public.
But the really discouraging thing is it’s hard to tell American Democrats’ Trump-hating reactions apart from Iran’s turban-wearing mullahs.
At times like this, America needs strength.
This week, Trump showed he’s capable of giving us that.
