Trump is winging it as president. Send the military to Venezuela? Sure, why not?
His own administration has no idea what’s going on. The look on Nikki Haley’s face said it all. Trump is ruling by whim, and his whims are endangering the American people by making policy commitments that not even the military knows anything about.
