Trump Voter Regrets Voting For Trump Since Jared And Ivanka Now Run The Show


Former reality TV host Donald Trump is showing his true colors now that he has found himself on the hot seat in the Oval Office.

It has become increasingly apparent that he is incapable of taking guidance from anyone outside of his family.

In an unprecedented move, Trump elevated his unqualified son-in-law Jared Kushner and daughter Ivanka Trump to key official positions within his White House.

This prompted a prominent former Trump backer to publicly slam Trump in a vicious way.

Wrote American Conservative founder Scott McConnell in a scathing essay at Vox, “When Donald Trump announced his candidacy to run for President in 2016, I found myself surprised by how bold and, often, how cogent his foreign policy perspectives seemed.

Who would have thought that the political figure who could shift the Republican Party United States towards a more realist foreign policy, recognizing that the most serious threats to American greatness didn’t come primarily from foreign states, would be a New York real estate loudmouth?”

He detailed howIt’s not a terrible thing for a realist power to growl and show its fangs from time to time, and America is party to an agreement under which the Assad regime removed its chemical weapons.

But it could also signal that Trump’s skepticism about intervention, which rested on the most shallow intellectual foundation to begin with, could evaporate very quickly in the face of rising poll numbers (the American people like their military!) and the pleasures of a strange new respect garnered from the likes of Elliot Abrams and [CNN host] Fareed Zakaria.”

McConnell continued, “If our actions somehow bring about the Assad regime collapse, and Russia allows this, rather than counter-escalating, the result will look something like today’s Libya—a failed state, or worse, with newly empowered Islamists running wild and Christians fleeing or subject to genocide.

What will be our policy then? One looks at the Trump White House, and wonders who might be asking these questions?

Probably no one. There are certainly no non-interventionists of genuine foreign policy stature who have Trump’s ear. Into the vacuum have moved Jared and Ivanka, bright, conventionally wisdomed, yuppie New Yorkers, who have never had to formulate or defend a complicated foreign policy position in their lives.” He concluded, “I certainly didn’t vote for the foreign policy preferences of Jared and Ivanka, or a policy driven by whatever images on TV happened to move the president.”

Are you glad this conservative spoke out? his opinion changed, however, stating, “The missile strike may not mean that much; it may turn out, in a way, fine.

It’s not a terrible thing for a realist power to growl and show its fangs from time to time, and America is party to an agreement under which the Assad regime removed its chemical weapons.
