As President Trump ends his Asia trip, he might sum up the 12-day journey with a revision of the remark attributed to Julius Caesar: "Veni, vidi, blandivi".Trump's trip was closer to a pilgrimage than a projection of power. The president rarely explained details of U.S. policy. Trump voiced a clear desire for accommodation with an aggressive Russia, too.Far more important than Trump's credulous response to Putin was his eagerness for Moscow's help in bolstering America's global position.Trump's ingratiating comments come at a time of American strategic disorientation.The most worrying thing about Trump isn't his impulsive military threats (though there's reason to be concerned there, too).Trump is a vain man who flatters others so that he will be stroked himself.
