America First

Consider this scenario: A foreign leaders visits the U.S. and then watches as his goons beat the shit out of Americans who were peacefully protesting his visit. The D.C. cops briefly detained some of the goons, but they were promptly released "when it was determined that they held diplomatic status."

President Trump could not have prevented this from happening. But he could have, at least, raised the issue with Erdogan when they met after the incident.. I bet any other U.S. president would have done something to protest the abuse of U.S. citizens for exercising their constitutional rights by foreign security forces on U.S. soil.
