I'm thrilled to appear on KGO in San Francisco with Chip Franklin on November 9th at 6 p.m. pacific time to talk about President elect Trump's possible foreign policy. In many ways, any U.S. president is severely limited to what they can do domestically in the United States for a whole series of reasons. However, internationally, this is where the President has enormous and even increasing power over the years.
President elect Trump has already said he thinks its a good idea to provide nuclear weapons to the Saudi, the Japanese, and the South Koreans. Understand, this cuts against every major position of every U.S. administration going back to President Harry Truman. And there are a whole series of reasons that we will get into. We will dig into this.
President elect Trump has stated that he is fine with torture and apparently the willingness to kill the innocent families of alleged terrorists if need be. Let alone that these would be war crimes, contemplate how this plays in the Middle East with those whom are our friends.
Consider his relationship and willingness to pull back and out of major areas of the world. The problems that this could cause is incalculable. It turns the U.S. from proactive to reactive. Haven't even mentioned the wall.
I'm sure we will get into a lot more but I think you get the picture. Hope you can catch it.
