Thread: Who Is Making US Foreign Policy?

    Who Is Making US Foreign Policy?

    President Trump campaigned and was elected on an anti-neocon platform: he promised to reduce direct US involvement in areas where, he believed, America had no vital strategic interest, including in Ukraine. He also promised a new détente (“cooperation”) with Moscow.

    And yet, as we have learned from their recent congressional testimony, key members of his own National Security Council did not share his views and indeed were opposed to them. Certainly, this was true of Fiona Hill and Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman. Both of them seemed prepared for a highly risky confrontation with Russia over Ukraine, though whether retroactively because of Moscow’s 2014 annexation of Crimea or for more general reasons was not entirely clear.

    Boeing stock opened 1980 at $4.90. If you want a share now, you pay $323.81.

    You call that poor performance?

    Trump makes a thoughtful decision on what to do on foreign policy after consulting with his experts at Fox news.
