UPDATED (3/15): Things That Haven’t #MAGA, So Far

Business, Donald Trump, Foreign Policy, Political Philosophy, Politics, Republicans, Russia, UN

Foreign Policy:

We’re peace-keeping on Syria. Policing the world doesn’t make America or the world great again. I thought President Trump promised we wouldn’t be enabling the UN’s ineptitude any longer.

President Trump has hired individuals who do not articulate the principles he ran on. Gov. Nikki Haley, for one. When the rest open their mouths to speak, too many sound nothing like what was promised. The generals scare me. America First? Where? In Yemen? Hiring different perspectives in business could well be a strength. But it’s not a strength when it comes to politics and policy. In politics you want a team that shares a political philosophy.

It’s a mistake to allow Russia mania to ramp-up without decisively and repeatedly articulating the need to get along with powers which share mutual, non-neocon interests.

UPDATE (3/15): The swamp is still swampy.

Trump Presidency: What His New Team Might Teach Us

Donald Trump, Elections, Foreign Policy, Republicans

While I disagree with the writer’s conclusions regarding Donald Trump’s selection of successful businessmen, not all Anthony Zurcher’s questions are unreasonable, following President-elect Trump’s cabinet picks. After all, they’re “not exactly drawn from the ranks of the angry populist masses”:

* Since “the president-elect has frequently turned to the military brass,” will “Mr Trump’s picks give his administration a decidedly martial bent”? He campaigned on “a less interventionist foreign policy.”

* “Mr Trump railed against the political establishment on the campaign trail, but some of his nominees are very comfortable in the Washington ‘swamp'”: “Tom Price, slated for Health and Human Services, is a member of the Republican leadership in the House of Representatives. … Elaine Chao served as labour secretary under President George W Bush and is married to Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell,” not to mention Republican Party darling, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley.
