MAGA=Cognitive Dissonance: Trump uses this same tactic over and over again. Here's what he does- he claims he will take a very unpopular drastic measure concerning an issue and then just days or even hours before he does what he says he's gonna do, he pulls back. He does this on both foreign and domestic issues. This makes him always look like the good guy. He's saying to everyone, "I could could mess you up real bad if I wanted to, but I choose to be the nice guy and not do it." It's an old tactic used by certain politicians and kings and emperors throughout history. Don't fall for it.
