Obama and his predecessors conducted foreign policy using appeasement and bribery and it didn’t work. As far back as Clinton, the US bribed North Korea to abandon its nuclear ambitions; it didn’t work. Obama used bribery and appeasement with Iran and it didn’t work.
Bribery by the federal government did work with States in the form of “grants to states’ with strings attached to the money designed to convince legislators to ignore the will of the people.
