Scott talks to Eli Clifton about the billionaire “megadonors” who control the Republican party. Although Trump started his campaign touting his status as an independent billionaire who couldn’t be bought, Clifton explains how even if that’s true, someone needs to fund all the senate and congressional campaigns of the candidates to support Trump during his term. Since these donors are almost universally zionist neocons, Trump’s foreign policy ends up being directed toward Israel’s interests, meaning toward war with Afghanistan.
