9/6/18 Doug Bandow on Deep State Resistance to Trump

Read Scott Horton's new book Fool's Errand: Time to End the War in Afghanistan

Cato’s Doug Bandow discusses the recent anonymous op-ed in the New York Times, which claims that a devoted resistance movement inside the White House works to undermine President Trump’s agenda at every turn. Bandow explains how troubling it is to have an unelected cabal within our government that wields this much power, especially one that opposes all the aspects of Trump’s presidency we should actually be applauding, namely his willingness to negotiate with Russia and North Korea.

Discussed on the show:

  • “I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration” (New York Times)

Doug Bandow is a senior fellow at the Cato Institute and a regular contributor at Forbes Magazine, the National Interest, and elsewhere. He’s on Twitter @Doug_Bandow.
