Bob Dole heaped praise on President Trump for what he described as the restoration of "strong American leadership" put on display during his trip to Europe over the past few days.
Calling it a "successful trip" overall, Dole, a former Republican senator from Kansas who ran unsuccessfully for president in 1996, singled out Trump's speech in Warsaw, Poland, as being particularly important. In a statement Saturday, Dole described the speech from Wednesday as "one for the ages, a vital, eloquent, and stirring articulation of the values and shared goals that bind us together with the Polish people, and with millions of others around the world who seek to live in freedom."
Trump received a warm welcome in Poland, which stands in contrast to the massive protests that awaited him later in the week at the G-20 summit in Germany. In his speech Trump not only addressed NATO, of which Poland is a part, and Russia, but also spoke about defending western civilization.
"We cannot mistake the significance of Poland and the great Polish people in the history of the struggle for human liberty," Dole said. "The message was desperately needed at this time from our American president and we are grateful for it and for the manner in which he delivered it."
At the G-20 summit in Hamburg, Dole complimented Trump for completing a "number of critically important strategic meetings." The U.S. president had his first one-on-one meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, who has been tied to interference in the 2016 election, as well as meetings with Chinese President Xi Jinping and United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May, among others.
"Americans should be proud of the strong American leadership being restored by President Trump," Dole said. "More importantly," he added, "they should be proud to live in a country that stands for the values he has so ably expressed, shared, and defended."

PRAY for PRESIDENT TRUMP.

I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyonefor kings and all those in authority that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
Well good on old Bob Dole, climbing out of the swamp and shaking it off like this. I attribute it to actually understanding patriotism unlike the brainwashed McCain. I’m sure Liddy’s having a cow, though. She’s totally eat up with it.
Haven’t heard from Bob Dole in forever.
Not sure I really care what he has to say.
But ok, I read it.
“President Trump’s actions have immensely helped restore our position as leader of the free world,” Dole said,..
This statement assumes that our position has been drastically weakened, which of course it has been, by Obama and the demoncrats.
If anyone knows about speeches, it’s Bob Dole. Bob Dole knows about flapping his gums. It’s something Bob Dole does with out thinking. Bob Dole will tell you that himself.
Wow, great words from Sen. Dole! Thanks for posting. :)
Didn’t know they could do spine transplants. Too bad they couldn’t do them back when the Libs were pushing the AWB and Bob Dole folded like a cheap umbrella in a big wind.
The Tax Collector for the Welfare State speaks.
Trump should give him a polite “thanks” and the ignore him until his funeral.
Bob Dole attended the convention...and stuck out as the only past president/presidential candidate to do so.
This is great news for the President and well deserved.
“Bob Dole attended the convention...and stuck out as the only past president/presidential candidate to do so.”
Thank you for your reminder of Bob Dole attending the convention. I value such positive comments. It’s nice to see civility in a discussion.
“I’m Bob Dole.”
They just can't report compliments without slanting the presentations in some manner.
Obama got big protests too. Not only that, these protests at the G-20 ARE NOT solely focused on Trump.
The anarchists hate these sorts of gatherings.
I remember that. It took courage to do what he did.
Even with that, though, Mr. Dole is getting a very chilly reception on this site. I don’t know his entire political history, so I may have missed a lot of RINO type moves.
I do recall his wife Elizabeth, how quickly she flamed out of her last campaign.
