America is being respected again

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1CKdA2RXsewt__bfhP5DOUTKDlwFVsGBPiWEw5hhtMIw/edit#gid=0 The American perspective of world affairs is changing. The current foreign policy of the United States puts it in a position of strength at the world’s negotiating table. Things that seemed impossible a few years ago have now happened. The shift began with the election of the current president. The United States is now a country that positions itself in the best interests of its citizens. Treaties and trade deals that hurt the country have been canceled, renegotiated, or nullified. American citizens have a new sense of optimism. === American Christian pastor Andrew Brunson was arrested in Turkey in 2016, and charged with unsubstantiated terrorism offenses. Turkish courts tried to imprison him for 35 years. After President Trump was elected, he put economic pressure on Turkey. His efforts helped drive down the value of Turkish currency. Brunson was finally released in October 2018, and brought to the Oval Office. Brunson and his wife praised Trump and gave him a blessing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1rn6Dp-vVE https://www.theepochtimes.com/freed-from-turkish-prison-pastor-andrew-brunson-kneeled-prayed-for-trump-in-oval-office_2688796.html [Trump] “We’ve been negotiating long and hard. We do not pay ransom in this country, at least any longer. We won’t pay ransom. Otherwise you’ll have big problems. And lots of things will happen. Lots of bad things will happen.” [Brunson] “And we especially want to thank the administration. You really fought for us, unusually so, from the time you took office, I know that you’ve been engaged. Secretary of State Pompeo also was very engaged and fought for us. Vice President Pence … we’re very grateful.” —- North Korea closed itself off from the world for decades. The country’s communist rulers made threats with its missiles and nuclear development program. The regime always acted in defiance of agreements to curb its development of weapons of mass destruction. In May, President Trump managed to get the last three Americans out of prison in North Korea. Their fate was otherwise unpredictable and unknown. The president also managed to bring back the remains of American military personnel who never came home after the Korean War. It’s been over 60 years since the war ended. The move was unprecedented, and something no previous administration had been able to accomplish. Surviving family members can now put the bodies of their relatives to rest back at home. [Pence] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M1Jyc45Ps0o "Sixty-five years ago last week, the armistice was signed to bring the Korean War to its close. From the moment the guns fell silent, American soldiers returned home, some to their families and futures, and some to their eternal rest. But more than 8,000 Americans did not come home at all." "As our President entered into negotiations with North Korea, he also had our fallen on his heart. As he secured a commitment for the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, our President also secured a promise from Chairman Kim to return the remains of all fallen U.S. service members lost in North Korea." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mgTDwhu_tiA [Trump] “I think our whole relationship with North Korea and the Korean Peninsula is going to be a much different situation than it has in the past.” “People are going to be very impressed, people are going to be very happy, and we’re going to take care of a very big and very dangerous problem for the world.” ==== America is also commanding respect through its economic moves. President Trump ended the North American Free Trade Agreement, replacing it with the United States, Mexico and Canada Agreement. The new trade deal updates trade relations between the three countries, and brings an end to portions of the old deal that put the United States at an unfair economic disadvantage. [Trump] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_5URTFUluX8&t=11s "The agreement will govern nearly $1.2 trillion in trade, which makes it the b
