The constant refrain is that Donald Trump is taking on “the establishment”. Well, Trump has started to name several individuals that he’ll be surrounding himself with, and they’re about as establishment as it gets!
First, let’s not forget that Trump revealed his closeness to Rudy Giuliani. If you’re looking for advice on winding down America’s lost cause wars, you don’t look to Rudy Giuliani, that’s for sure.
Next, is Donald’s long-time friend Chris Christie, whose over-the-top warmongering should still be fresh in everyone’s minds. Rand Paul, during one the Republican debates reached his limit. Rand finally said of Christie: “I think if you’re in favor of World War III, you have your candidate.”
Christie is now on Team Trump.
Next, Trump has named as top National Security Advisor, the current president of the Council on Foreign Relations, Richard Haass.
For those who don’t know, The Council on Foreign Relations literally is an establishment institution. You can’t get more establishment than the CFR.
