“A senior administration official says that Trump will call to ‘end endless foreign wars’ in Tuesday’s State of the Union address.” — per @PhilipinDC
This is politically smart, shrewd.
It’s a POWERFUL message that resonates to both the war-averse Left and to the Libertarian-leaning Right — and, for now at least, to the Trump base who
a.) pledges unwavering loyalty; and
b.) wants a rebellious break from the Old Guard neo-cons
On the Left, it was Sanders who formerly wooed this voting block. It didn’t make him any friends in the Democratic Party.
For the Trump Administration, it’s either a Hail Mary or a Slam Dunk.
