Dr. Ron Paul joins the show for an assessment of President Trump’s foreign policy so far, about half way into his first term. Paul says that compared with Bush and Obama, Trump doesn’t look too bad. His instincts are better, especially in the way he questions why America even has troops in some of the countries it does, but Paul points out that despite good instincts, most of the bad policies remain in place and there’s been very little troop drawdown so far. President Trump has, however, reiterated in the last several days that he’s serious about withdrawal from Syria and Afghanistan, even after some of his Republican allies contradicted the story.
