Trump's team is making clear the president-elect has no intention of continuing to escalate with Moscow
Neocons at the Pentagon, State, and throughout Washington are tearing their hair out thanks to the latest revelation about The Donald's future policy plans.
The widely-read neocon/globalist flagship Foreign Policy has obtained a leaked memo from the Trump transition team which lists the incoming president's defense priorities. Russia is not to be found among them.
A pentagon memo outlining the incoming Trump administration’s top “defense priorities” identifies defeating the Islamic State, eliminating budget caps, developing a new cybersecurity strategy, and finding greater efficiencies as the president-elect’s primary concerns. But the memo, obtained by Foreign Policy, does not include any mention of Russia, which has been identified by senior military officials as the No. 1 threat to the United States.
“People there now would be pretty concerned to see Russia not on the list,” said Evelyn Farkas, a former senior Pentagon official who worked on Russia policy before leaving in 2015.
For years, top cabinet officials at the Defense Department and the intelligence community cited Russia as the foremost threat because of its vast nuclear arsenal, sophisticated cyber capabilities, recently modernized military, and willingness to challenge the United States and its allies in the Middle East, Eastern Europe, and other regions.
Here's a copy of the memo:
Despite all the naysayers, Trump is proving himself to be the real deal. He will not be bought, and he will not be pressured by the usual suspects to advance the same old tired policies which have been so destructive to America's image and the peace and security of the world.
The world is about to be turned upside down, and the corrupt globalist establishment knows it. One month from now, the Trumpening begins.
