While President Trump Is On Business Trip In Vietnam, John McCain Used That To STAB Him In the BACK

On the 7th of November, there was an influx of letters from the House of Representatives that were sent to President Donald Trump, that urged him to speak to Vietnamese leaders about human rights abuses during his trip to Asia.

Senator McCain had been scorned by President Trump way too many times for this to be a sympathetically letter addressing the concerns of the Vietnamese people.

Before continuing, we would like to give our personal opinion on this subject, and that is that most points addressed by this letter are over inflated and over the top. 

That is what we think but please, feel free to read on and share what you think on the matter.

The letter was addresed to President Trump regarding his visit to Vietnam and their supposed human right violations. They all summed up something like this:

During your visit to Vietnam, we urge you to impress upon the Communist Party leaders in Hanoi that continued the expansion of economic and strategic cooperation between the U.S. and Vietnam will depend on real and concrete improvement in Vietnam's dismal human rights record...

Vietnam is an increasingly important trade partner, as our exports have increased nine-fold over the last decade...

However, we are gravely concerned about the harassment, intimidation, assaults, and imprisonment of rights defenders, bloggers, and religious leaders. Basic rights in Vietnam, including freedom of religion, speech, press, and association, are severely circumscribed. Religious groups face systematic, ongoing, and egregious restrictions for seeking to organize independently of government control...

In your speech to the United Nations in September, you said that the "United States of America will stand with every person living under a brutal regime. Our respect for sovereignty is also a call for action. All people deserve a government that cares about their safety, their interests, and their well-being, including their prosperity." During your visit to Poland in July, you also stated "we value the dignity of every human life, protect the rights of every person, and share the hope of every soul to live in freedom. That is who we are."

The Vietnamese people do not have freedom and face harsh repression for standing up for human rights and decency. Your advocacy for individual rights and the rule of law will be warmly welcomed by the Vietnamese people...

If history is a guide, your advocacy will also bring tangible results. The Vietnamese government has responded to concerns expressed by the last two administrations when human rights improvements were linked to better U.S.-Vietnam relations.

At the last part of the letter, the Representatives asked Trump to “promote a free internet…focus on religious freedom…address the president problem of human trafficking…emphasize legal reforms that will enhance freedom and seek releases of political and religious prisoners.

While President Trump was flying from Danang to Hanoi on Saturday, some reporters have asked if he felt the need to talk about human rights abuses in Vietnam to which he replied that he does.

The same day, President Trump offered his sentiments to a crowd that included Vietnamese President Tran Dai Quang, stating:

"Vietnam has truly become one of the great miracles of the world, and it's very impressive, no matter where you come from, no matter who you are. If you look at what's happened in Vietnam, there is nothing more impressive. Thank you very much for this honor, and I look forward to seeing you, Mr. President, many, many times."

After all of this, Senator John McCain had to attack President Trump for his public silence on human rights issues while in Vietnam Tweeting:

.@POTUS in #Danang & no mention of human rights - Sad
