Trump's New Foreign Policy: The Cooptation Doctrine

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The Cooptation Doctrine -- Sanction the hell out of the leader of a despotic Third World country, then go meet him and promise, if he mends his ways, to make his country rich and him even richer. Trump realizes instinctually what we all know from history. Ideology be damned -- being a communist dictator is all about making a fortune off the backs of "the people."  (Castro died a billionaire).  Of course, it helps that you place the despot's regime under those extreme sanctions before you offer him paradise and not let up with those sanctions until he relents and signs.
