APRA HARBOR, Guam (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – In an effort to project himself as tough on terrorism and an expert on foreign policy, Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump has sharply criticized today’s announcement by President Barack Obama that he has ordered the total closure of the U.S. military facility in Guam.
‘Now more than ever, we need to build and maintain America’s military bases abroad — not close them — in light of the growing threat of world terrorism.”
Trump’s statement is by far the strongest he has made on foreign policy issues, many of which the next president will face on his or her first day in office.
Apparently, Trump and his campaign staff need to brush up on their geography.
Obama’s announcement was about Guantanamo, Cuba. Not Guam in the Pacific.
