Donald Trump has outlined his foreign policy team during a meeting with the Washington Post editorial board.
Shed some tears, NRO types. According to the Post, it doesn’t look like we’ll be rushing into any middle-east wars for no good national security reason any time soon. The Post says Trump indicated an “unabashedly non-interventionist approach to world affairs.”
The Republican presidential front-runner listed for the first time five of the individuals who are part of a team, chaired by Sen. Jeff Sessions (Ala.), counseling him on foreign affairs and helping to shape his policies.
“Walid Phares, who you probably know. Ph.D., adviser to the House of Representatives. He’s a counter-terrorism expert,” Trump said. “Carter Page, Ph.D. George Papadopoulos. He’s an oil and energy consultant. Excellent guy. The honorable Joe Schmitz, [was] inspector general at the Department of Defense. General Keith Kellogg. And I have quite a few more. But that’s a group of some of the people that we are dealing with. We have many other people in different aspects of what we do. But that’s pretty representative group.”
Trump said he plans to share more names in the coming days.
