Trump delivers shock rebuke to Colombia over cocaine surge

Blaming the victim. Trump never disappoints in his ignorant, obnoxious diplomacy. Cocaine production is caused by U.S. consumption. The Colombian people do not have the power to deal with the  powerful cartels:

U.S. President Donald Trump is threatening that he may decertify Colombia as a partner in the drug war unless it reverses a record surge in cocaine production in the South American nation.

The shock rebuke for Washington’s staunchest ally in Latin America came Wednesday in the White House’s annual designation of nations it deems major drug producing or transit zones.

Colombia, which is source of 90 percent of the cocaine consumed in the U.S., has long been a fixture of the list, which was unchanged from last year. But not since the late 1990s, when contributions from the Cali cartel funded the campaign of Colombia’s then-President Ernesto Samper, has its commitment to fighting narcotics trafficking been called into question by Washington.
