David Stockman Challenges Trump Administration’s Militarism and Drug War



In a recent interview at CNN, David Stockman, who is a Ron Paul Institute Advisory Board member and was director of the Office of Management and Budget during the Reagan administration, critiqued the Trump administration for pushing militarism and the drug war that fuel the problems they are supposedly fighting.

Ron Paul: ‘Remain Vigilant’ Regarding Trump Administration

Ron Paul commented Wednesday regarding the early days of Donald Trump’s presidency and what may be expected in the future from the Trump administration. Speaking with host Alex Jones on the Alex Jones Show, Paul said that, while he has his “fingers crossed,” it is important to “remain vigilant” regarding the Trump administration.

Paul starts off the interview noting that he generally has been disappointed by government growth over the decades since the 1970s when Paul was first elected to the United States House of Representatives.

With Donald Trump set to become president tomorrow, many proponents of the US government refraining from intervening in other countries have their fingers crossed, hoping that a Trump administration will bring an improved US foreign policy.

In this week’s Ron Paul Institute weekly email to subscribers, RPI Executive Director Daniel McAdams wrote about how Obama’s foreign policy turned out to be different than the one for which many peace supporters had hoped. McAdams also discussed in the email other matters, including Obama granting a commutation for whistleblower Chelsea Manning. (You can sign up here to receive free RPI updates.)
