180-DEGREE REVERSAL BY FLIP FLOPPER TRUMP AS HIS ERRATIC FOREIGN POLICY UNFOLDS (IS TRUMP A MAN OF A
President Donald Trump continues to reverse himself very quickly on every single foreign policy position he took during the presidential campaign.
In the past two weeks, he has rapidly changed his entire policy on Syria. Where he once openly praised Syrian strongman Bashar Assad for fighting the Islamic State group and vowed to work with Russia in the region to fight ISIS, his administration has now attacked a Syrian airbase and is taking every possible position imaginable on whether Assad can stay and what the necessary conditions are for attacking his regime.
And that's not the only inconsistency.
Trump is simultaneously taking multiple positions on basically every other foreign policy statement and promise he made during the campaign.

After blasting NATO on the campaign trail and calling it "obsolete," Trump said Wednesday in a joint press conference with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, "I said it was obsolete. It's no longer obsolete." And just like that, Team Trump is onboard with NATO.
Then in an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Trump reversed another one of his signature campaign foreign policy positions: promising to label China a currency manipulator. After meeting with the Chinese President Xi Jinping last weekend, Trump decided against it. "China hasn't been manipulating its currency for months and because taking the step now could jeopardize his talks with Beijing on confronting the threat of North Korea," the Journal wrote.
Trump's foreign policy reversals is stunning in such short order.
My opinion: Trump is an incoherent person, who listens to the last person that advises him on how to go about his foreign policy, he change his foreign policy on China daily just by listening to what the Chinese president says and doing 180-degree u-turn on every comment and policy he has tweeted about China
Trump foreign policy is all over the place and very erratic
President Trump is on-edge and doesn't take responsibility for anything unless he is 100% sure it will benefit him.
Asked specifically if he authorised the MOAB strike, Trump said: “Everybody knows exactly what happened, so…and what I do is I authorise my military. We have the greatest military in the world and they’ve done a job as usual.
“So we have given them total authorisation, and that’s what they’re doing. And frankly that’s why they’ve been so successful lately.”
