How Donald Trump thinks about foreign policy 4
Trump actually has a philosophy on foreign policy, and its terrifying.

Donald Trump’s coziness with Vladimir Putin, casual talk of taking Iraq’s oil and abandoning NATO, and muddled messaging on whether he'd deploy American troops to battle ISIS makes it easy to assume that the GOP nominee's foreign policy is a jumbled mishmash of ideas lacking any coherent philosophy.

That couldn't be more wrong. In fact, a close look at Trump’s public comments leads to a very different conclusion: Trump has a distinct worldview that knits together many of his specific proposals. We can sum it up in a word: transactional.

More scared of Trump followers than Trump. It boggles my mind not that Donald Trump wants to be president, but rather that so many people want it.

Also, if you wanted a Democratic president, we shoulda ran with Bernie. Guy's record is clean af.

Why no country do pay in the NATO like the US ? because all wars done were for american interests especially under bush son & father administrations where they invaded and bombed and killed leaders illegaly and they're getting away with it until now.

Not a fan of either Hillary of Trump, but whenever I hear an audience clap for something ridiculous a candidate says, I'm like, "Are you serious?" Are they clapping out of politeness or genuine stupidity?

i just love how people want to see a comparison with Hillary's foreign policy. what Trump said about taking other people's oil and increasing the countries with nukes, should disqualify him as a president.

''Keep the oil'' isnt that what US is doing in the Middle east? Killing people, taking lands and keeping oil?

It's very troubling that trump has a tendency to spout out all kinds of radical, dangerous, misinformed, nonsense when pressed on an issue he don't understand or is incapable of rationally defending. (see most intetviews, or sworn depositions in lawsuits, Google them)
Maybe he will have a team of lawyers and handlers to keep him in line in private, but in front of the

I hope Vox will analyze Mike Pence, who is as establishment and as mainstream as they come. He voted for the Iraq War and supports taking out Assad. Additionally, he's the one leading Trump's transition, thus making him the one calling the shots the Administration. I came across something very interesting in my investigation: Mike Pence was a voluntary member of the Silk Road Congressional Caucus. This "Caucus" was completely set up by the oil lobby, according to the LA Times, and indicating Mike Pence is probably a modern-day continuation of the Neo-Cons. Check out my Youtube channel for a complete video on Trump's peculiar administration, as well as a video describing the oil lobby being deeply involved with the Syrian Civil War!
