Was just reading part of the book: Eisenhower In War And Peace. It explained when Eisenhower was running for president, the Korean War had entered its third year — and “it loomed large in voters’ minds.” During a campaign speech, he promised a “personal trip to Korea.” He believed to better assess the situation, he had to be on the ground there. Conversely, I couldn’t help but think if, say, Trump traveled to Latin America to see, first hand, the cartel violence on the streets there, the abject poverty on the streets there… he wouldn’t be so apt to be adamantly turning away people desperately trying to flee all that. I’ve been to Juarez, Mexico, and have seen all that. We can’t turn our backs on these people. We just can’t.
