Trump’s Saudi/Israeli First Foreign Policy.
I'll talk about the American left's hatred for Russia & why many people are so scared to seriously talk about Israel & Saudi Arabia later.
If you're paying attention, then you would know that Trump supported Israel from the beginning.
From Trump's rhetoric & public image, I find it shocking that he would actually openly interact with the Saudis the way he did.
I'm also surprised that Trump has softened up his rhetoric on his opinion about Islam.
Personally, while I am very outspoken against anti-Muslim hate (& collectivist hatred in general) & support freedom of religion, I will not defend Islam as a religion due to the dogma, violence & authoritarianism in it like all major religions.
It seems that Trump's anti-Islam rhetoric from the past was not sincere, but rather, to gain support from NeoConservative Evangelicals who see all Muslims as being the same & see Islam as a rival tribe that the Evangelicons want destroyed.
For more information, listen to these podcasts;

What Became of Conservatives?
Telling from his flip-flopping & policy changes, I no longer belive that he really cares about America.
Ron Paul on the RonPaulLibertyReport has already mentioned that Trump operates from no real philosophy, so flip-flopping is to be expected anyways.
I do NOT like Iran's domestic policy of theocracy & authoritarianism in general. I'm just talking about foreign policy here.
These videos go deeper into the history of modern terrorism;
I'd also like to note that it seems like Trump cares nothing for Christians in Israel;
As for how I see the right-wing media reports on their comparison to Obama's & Trump's interactions with the Saudis, I feel that they're making too big of a deal out of their posturing.
Obama's intended public image is intended to appeal to typical Americans who identify with the socio-political left, while in contrast, Trump's intended public image is intended to appeal to Americans who identify with the socio-political right.
But body language does not matter nearly as much as policies, becuase it is policies that actually affects people's lives.
As for why Trump is doing all of this, I'll reccomend watching the two videos below.
Note that I do NOT endorse &/or share their views about all Jews as people. I'll get to the issue of collectivism after them.
Becuase of the media & the attention drawn by real anti-Jewish people, lot of people assume that you're anti-semitic if you have a disagreement with the Israeli government, & for much of the same latter reason, that you're Islamophobic if you criticise Islam (even if you do not hate muslims). I myself am outspoken against collectivist hatred in general.
Now why does the American left hate Russia so much? Here's my theory;
1: Russia has been demonised in culture as being "the bad guys" since the end of World War two, even though things have gotten better since the collapse of the Soviet Union.
To see what part the media plays in this, watch the videos below:

My personal opinion:
If Trump's approval rating is low, then good. We as Americans must get rid of the bandwagon & herd mentality if we want any real change for the better. I also hope that more people find out how the governments of Israel & Saudi Arabia are buddy-bro's, despite what the mainstream media wants you to believe.
But the catch is that a lot of people hate Trump for the wrong reasons, so it's not like that their dislike for Trump would get serious & go anywhere.
