Where photos of Trump with Emmanuel Macron, the French president, used to hang, there can now be seen – on the walls of the White House – photos of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un and Trump.

To be clear, Trump has replaced photos of the leader of one of America’s closest allies, a country with which the United States defeated the forces of fascism in World War II, with an homage to a brutal dictator who has killed members of his own family and starved his population into submission in his interminable quest for absolute power.

Trump has never been an advocate for democratic ideals, but his cozying up to dictators – Vladimir Putin of Russia, Kim Jong-un of North Korea, Recep Erdogan of Turkey, Viktor Orban of Hungary – is not only poor optics but an abdication of America’s role as a protector of civil and human rights.

Trump may claim that his White House values democracy, but his actions speak much, much louder.
