Donald Trump walked out on a very risky limb today and advocated a non-interventionist foreign policy. The Washington Post reports from the AIPAC (American-Israeli Public Affairs Committee) meeting on Donald's plans:
Donald Trump outlined an unabashadly noninterventionist approach to world
affairs Monday, telling The Washington Post's editorial board that he
questions the need for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, which has
formed the backbone of Western security policies since the Cold War.
The meeting at The Post covered a range of issues, including media libel
laws, violence at his rallies, climate change, the NATO and the U.S.
presence in Asia.
Speaking ahead of a major address on foreign policy later Monday in
front of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, Trump said he
advocates an aggressive U.S. posture in the world with a light
footprint. In spite of unrest abroad, especially in the Middle East,
Trump said the United States must look inward and steer its resources
toward rebuilding domestic infrastructure.
"I do think it’s a different world today, and I don’t think we should be
nation-building anymore," Trump said. "I think it’s proven not to work,
and we have a different country than we did then. We have $19 trillion
in debt. We’re sitting, probably, on a bubble. And it’s a bubble that if
it breaks, it’s going to be very nasty. I just think we have to rebuild
He added: "I watched as we built schools in Iraq and they’re blown up.
We build another one, we get blown up. We rebuild it three times and yet
we can’t build a school in Brooklyn. We have no money for education
because we can’t build in our own country. At what point do you say,
'Hey, we have to take care of ourselves?' So, I know the outer world
exists and I’ll be very cognizant of that. But at the same time, our
country is disintegrating, large sections of it, especially the inner
Trump is my new hero. This is a Libertarian wet dream (if I might be so bold and offensive). It is time to bring 'em home. Our soldiers can come home and help round up the illegal immigrants for return to their homeland. It's perfect! Now if he will just outline an economic plan that involves dissolution of the Federal Reserve System and a break up of the world banking cartel, my joy will be complete! Down with the neocons and liberals. Let there be a black boot in their faces for eternity.
Let the people rule again lead by good King Donald!
