Trump Shifts On Syria, Russia – Neocons Go Nuts!

by | Apr 3, 2018

Over the past week, President Trump has twice emphatically stated that he intends to remove US troops from Syria and bring them home “where they belong.” He also defied his advisors by congratulating Russian President Vladimir Putin on his election victory and suggested a summit meeting at the White House. The neocons have spent the last week furiously attacking these two moves, accusing him of undermining the policies of his advisors. Strangely, they don’t seem to remember that it is the elected president who makes foreign policy, not his/her advisors. Will Trump actually defy the neocons and follow through with these two policy shifts…or will he flip-flop? Join us for today’s Liberty Report:
