As further proof that we live in a complicated world, one in which Trump is dangerously ignorant, the Associated Press has reported that the United States just seized a large cargo ship in Indonesia that was being used to supply coal to North Korea. International sanctions prohibit selling coal to the country, and the sanctions also prohibit the use of American dollars for the maintenance of the ship.
The coal on board the ship came from Russia, and the American banks were "hoodwinked". Officials say North Korea sought to conceal the vessel's purpose by listing in shipping documentation different countries for its nationality and the origin of the coal.
If Obama was still president, Vladimir Putin would get a blistering phone call about violating international sanctions - again.
Trump won't do squat.
Meanwhile, he's bringing us closer to the brink of war with Iran, while ignoring far more egregious behavior on the part of the Saudis because he wants to sell them weapons AND NUCLEAR COMPONENTS.
