In a new interview at RT, Ron Paul, who seeks to advance a noninterventionist foreign policy through his Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity, discussed the conflicting actions President Donald Trump is taking regarding Iran. On one side, Trump is engaging in conflict escalation and threats. On the other side, Trump is indicating support for conciliation, including by suggesting that Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) — Ron Paul’s son and an advocate for improving United States relations with Iran — could help reduce tension with Iran by talking with the nation’s foreign minister.
Paul also discusses in the interview several other foreign policy matters, including the US government’s effort to overthrow the Venezuela government, the ending of the US dollar’s status as the world reserve currency, and Paul’s support for ending US involvement in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).
