Co-host of the Ron Paul Liberty Report Daniel McAdams returns to the show to discuss the latest developments in Syria where the Turkish government is threatening to confront American forces in eastern Syria. McAdams and Scott talk about Donald Trump’s disappointing presidency (to put it mildly), how Ron Paul’s anti-war views have become even more radical, and Twitter’s latest policy of alerting its users who follow supposed Russian bots.
Daniel McAdams is the executive director of the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity and the co-host of the Ron Paul Liberty Report. Follow him on Twitter @DanielLMcAdams and read all of his work over at Antiwar.com.
