When Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull arrives in Washington this week for consultations with President Donald Trump, he wont be traveling solo.
Turnbull is bringing the most senior Australian political and business delegation ever to visit the United States in a trip aimed at building stronger relationships with Americas governors. While hell talk trade and security concerns with Trump, Turnbull will spend the weekend courting U.S. governors at their annual gathering.
Turnbull, a Goldman Sachs executive-turned prime minister, is the latest world leader to extend outreach to U.S. governors and big-city mayors in the age of Trumps America First policies. Its an end run or at least a shift in focus around Washington, as foreign leaders react to Trumps unpredictability and occasional lack of interest in the sort of global cooperation theyre seeking.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeaus recent trip to the U.S. included trade and tourism talks in Illinois with Gov. Bruce Rauner and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, a stop in the San Francisco Bay area for meetings with California Gov. Jerry Brown and Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, and a visit to Los Angeles, where he explored the citys hiking trails with Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. [ ]
[G]overnors and mayors say theres been an uptick in the interest of foreign leaders in reaching out to them since Trumps election. Its political and its practical. On the political side, a lack of engagement, strength and leadership from Washington and the White House, Garcetti said in an interview. But the practical aspect is the world demands integration and work on these things.

This is quite serious. Doing a so-called “end run around Washington DC” subverts the US Constitution, especially Article 1 Section 10. Definitely surrounded by enemies who took over our former allies.
Of course this, the lib media cheers on. Constitution be damned, yet again.
A Secretary of State should call in the ambassador from those countries, and explain to them that this “end run” is going to have severe consequences in terms of foreign aid and dozens of other areas.
Slap this crap down hard.
Trump is already furious with Australia dumping those terrorists on us in that cheesy Obama deal. Add to that Hillarys Pal the Diplomat in London that just happened to have drinks ...
Woukd that sort of global cooperation mean the kind of lopsided benefits that have lost so many American jobs over the past few decades? Or maybe the kind where the USA pays the lions share of some scheme like combatting global warming? No thanks.
Sounds to me like the man is meeting with the left wing losers that are killing America.
He is hobnobbing with Ameritrash
