In a Sunday Target Liberty editorial, Robert Wenzel provides some advice for President Donald Trump, who Wenzel relates has decided to “surround himself with warmongers” in executive department positions despite Trump seeming to want to move foreign policy in a different direction. Trump would have been wise, writes Wenzel, to choose different people for Trump administration personnel, including hiring Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), and Ron Paul Institute Executive Director Daniel McAdams for important foreign policy-related positions.
I consider Trump to be a savvy New York City street hustler, maybe the best ever, but the skill is not transferring well to the White House.
He has sharks all around him and does not appear to know how to protect himself in this environment. What’s more, he seems to bring his enemies into his Administration, apparently not being able to gauge just how vicious and dangerous these people are.
Why the hell does he surround himself with warmongers who probably pray to a statute of Brutus every night?
If Trump had any depth of understanding, he would have named Tulsi Gabbard as Secretary of Defense and Rand Paul as Secretary of State. They are both anti-war and appear to be weak on the silent coup stuff. He should have then brought in Daniel McAdams as national security adviser. The three would have taken the country in a foreign policy direction that Trump appears to want to go.
