Scott interviews Daniel McAdams about the influence of Mike Pompeo and John Bolton on President Trump’s foreign policy. Lately they’ve made sure to keep up a policy of maximum pressure through economic sanctions, and to avoid negotiations at all costs. It’s clear from their strategy that what they really want is a war. Trump’s good instincts on Iran may be the only thing that’s still keeping us at peace.
Discussed on the show:
- “Rand Paul angles to become Trump’s emissary to Iran” (POLITICO)
- “Pompeo: ‘I was the CIA director. We lied, we cheated, we stole'” (YouTube)
