    I’ve inserted the word ”by” to read ”…Macron’s move coincided with claims BY Lebanon that its prime minister…”. Thanks.

    Hi, just one small historical point: Lebanon is not ”a former French colony”. The ”Mandate for Syria and Lebanon” was established by the League of Nations after the First World War and the partitioning of the Ottoman Empire concerning Syria and the Lebanon. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_Mandate_for_Syria_and_the_Lebanon . Thanks.

    I tell you what…I’ll give it a try. I will use the Wikipedia info on Jimmy Carter’s trips and post something here in the next couple of days.

    Question? Has anyone done a stats based piece on past presidents and their foreign trips. Something similar to a rating of a NFL quarterback or a pro baseball pitcher. It’s easy to look at box scores at the end of a season and get a good idea of how it went for the player. The list on Wikipedia “List of international trips made by the President of the United States” already has the info, is there a way to add some stats to it. Was the outcome successful, not successful; a way to assess points and get calculations from the data, so we can have a President’s rating.

      Great idea. I look forward to how we determine “successful” in a neutral fashion. Peter
