In October of 2014, I gave a speech in front of 800 people in Phoenix, AZ. The large crowd was there to support my decision to explore a run for office in 2016.
When you put aside my love affair to make jokes during the Walk & Talks, I’m a very serious guy who takes a great deal of time to understand the issues and create solutions that could and would solve the problems we face as Americans.
I recall after the AZ. speech sitting backstage holding my little girl who was six years old at the time. She had opened the event by saying the Pledge of Allegiance. Two hours later she was sleeping in my arms as some of my biggest supporters were invited backstage to meet me. One supporter asked, “DML, what do you think to yourself when you see so many people wanting you to be president?” I responded, “I ask myself if I’m ready to put their lives in my hands?”
The above said, I’m not feeling totally safe today. I am highly concerned about North Korea, and unfortunately, I don’t feel like I know what’s going on… meaning, “What’s the plan to stifle this maniac in North Korea?”
North Korea launched another missile test last night, and experts say the missiles could reach Alaska.
Our lives now sit in the hands of President Trump. In response the the missile test, the president sent out a tweet asking if North Korea’s leader has anything better to do with his life? My answer to his question is, “No.” He wants us dead, and according to his objective I’d say he’s spending his time wisely.
I’d really appreciate a tweet or a presser that provides some level of information about how we’ll prevent this monster from killing innocent Americans.
As a guy who spends 16 hours per day, 7 days per week on covering news and politics, I feel so out of the loop on how we plan to address this issue. Although I understand the element of surprise, I’m not asking for the White House to reveal sensitive information on when and how we’ll take down Kim, but I would like to know something that offsets the fear that Kim is moving faster to attack than we are to defend.
