Ron Paul Describes the Foreign Policy Mission of the Ron Paul Institute

Interviewed Tuesday at RT, Ron Paul described the foreign policy mission of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity (RPI), which Paul founded in 2013 after completing his final term in the United States House of Representatives. Paul explains that RPI, of which Paul is chairman, has as a goal challenging interventionist United States foreign policy through changing people’s minds in the face of opposition, including from deep state and military-industrial complex influence in the media and the US Congress.

After noting that Ron Paul has “broken down ways to deescalate North Korea,” Alex Jones on Tuesday asked Paul, who was a guest on the Alex Jones Show, if Paul would accept a request from President Donald Trump that Paul travel to North Korea as a peace envoy.
