...action and war.

But if Trump is so anti-war/deep-state, then WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD HE CHOOSE WAR-MONGERS LIKE JOHN BOLTON, MIKE PENCE, MIKE POMPEO, NIKKI HALEY, STEVE MNUCHIN, ELLIOTT ABRAMS etc to HIGH POSITIONS in his administration???

Why not surround yourself with peace-loving diplomats who don't threaten bullets and bombs at every turn?

It's BAD ENOUGH having to fight off the Military Industrial Comnplex without having to fight against your OWN CABINET on top of it.  So of COURSE he's having issues. 

He has no allies in peace except maybe Rand Paul and a few Libertarian thinkers in Congress, but he doesn't even give them the time of day.

I can only guess that AIPAC and Israel dictated who he was to choose to advise him and to fill office positions.

And since he probably took tons of money from filthy traitors like Sheldon Adelson, he probably has to do as they say or else.  Note that Adelson's wife is from Israel with close ties to their military.

And notice too that more the peaceful men - like ex-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson who did serve-  are long gone.

but...  the axiom, "do not let the perfect be the enemy of the good" applies.  It has been long rumored that Reagan was only allowed to be president because he agreed to Bush as his VP...  Politics are politics.  If Trump didn't make ANY allies with the establishment, he wouldn't have survived this long...

But, you cannot deny that economically, war tendencies, regulation, etc, that Trump turned out to be in fact the most libertarian president we have had in over 80 years.

I didn't like the guy, thought he was an idiot.  But...  Look at the policies.  When was the last time you heard a president even acknowledge the MIC?

if only people could see the GOOD HE HAS DONE AND ACCOMPLISHED!  He must know (and have ) enemies embedded in his administration both unknown, and known!
