from The Daily Bell:
Donald Trump on Tuesday once again expressed his preference for keeping dictators in power in the Middle East. While acknowledging that Saddam Hussein “was a bad guy,” Trump praised the former Iraqi dictator’s efficient killing of “terrorists” — despite the fact that Iraq was listed as a state sponsor of terrorism during Hussein’s time in power. – CNN
Probably the real reason Donald Trump has so much trouble with established GOP politicians, especially at the Federal level, is that he is not a backer of a “secret” political conversation.
This is the ongoing conversation about how to support the US military industrial complex..
We are not as sure as some of Trump’s reasons for running for president.
But it is increasingly obvious that on the core issue of supporting the covert and overt goals of the military industrial complex, Trump is not trusted. His ideas are not approved by established political gatekeepers.
We can see this with the Saddam statement excerpted above. We may disagree with Trump about Saddam, but without him, Iraq has become even bloodier and deadlier.
Trump … said the U.S. “shouldn’t have destabilized” Iraq before pivoting to praising Hussein … Today, Iraq is Harvard for terrorism.”
… [But] asked Tuesday night on Fox News about the comments, House Speaker Paul Ryan appeared taken aback by Trump’s words.
