Special to WorldTribune.com By Sol W. Sanders Donald Trump’s much ballyhooed foreign policy speech was a minor disaster.

Special to WorldTribune.com By Sol W. Sanders Among the many anomalies of the Obama Administration’s foreign policy, none appear so anachronistic as its refusal to label the persecution and annihilation of Christians in the Middle East as genocide.
