Could this be the real reason why Trump is so despised by the elite Republican establishment?
In what can only be described as the neocon nightmare, Republican presidential frontrunnerDonald Trump said during last night’s debate on Fox News that he wants to achieve cooperative, and not confrontational, relationships with foreign countries.
Trump had this to say:
“Wouldn’t it be nice if actually we could get along with Russia, that we could get along with foreign countries.”
The neocon political faction that has dominated the Republican Party during recent history believes there is little to be gained from cooperation in politics, and prefers confrontation and domination instead; as they amply demonstrated with their 2003 Iraq War.
For Donald Trump to be specifically saying that he wants to ‘get along with Russia’ is unparalleled, as Mitt Romney, the 2012 Republican presidential candidate, said that Russia was “without question our number one geopolitical foe”.
A world with an American President that wants ‘to get along’ might certainly look a lot different to today’s. Yet, as we are seeing, with the myriad of attacks against Trump, certain political andmilitary industrial complex elite interests are not happy about the concept.
Of course, we must remember that this is still just that – a concept. However good of a concept it is, Trump may very well not deliver this goal.
Still, it certainly is a very different, and somewhat sweeter, change to the tune of American foreign policy rhetoric than we are used to hearing.
Do you believe Trump has the right foreign policy stance, and will he implement it?
