It is a year since Donald J. Trump's election as president on November 8, 2016, and a couple of months less since his inauguration. In that time the bombast has not stopped, the achievements remain meag er.

The threats against North Korea continue -- now on Trump's Asian tour. President Moon of South Korea is from the rapprochement party, bemused at the bellicosity, in polite tolerance because of trade, displaying Asian courtesy to one he probably considers a buffoon. Can anyone imagine him sacrificing the estimated 100,000 dead, in Seoul alone, and a repeat destruction of his country in a war with North Korea? Moreover, no amount of sanctions will have any effect as long as China continues to help its long-term ally.

Relations with other allies remain cool to say the least. No sign of the oft repeated better trade deals. COP23 the UN climate change conference is in progress at the UNFCCC Secretariat in Bonn. The U.S. has 48 attendees despite the Administration's lack of support.

Now that Syria has joined the Paris Climate Accord, the US is the only country left out. Worth noting the French Foreign Ministry announced Trump has not been invited to the December Climate Summit in Paris.
