While Donald Trump may have meant what he said in his inauguration speech (he wrote it himself), the Deep State castrated him soon after. Trump's foreign policy will not be different from his predecessors, Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush and the rest. The Deep State gets what it wants. What it wants is war which it hopes will save U.S. world hegemony and their own bacon. It won't. The United States of America is like the Titanic after it hit the iceberg. Americans are like its passengers unaware of the looming catastrophe and powerless to do anything about it. -ed
TRUMP IS A PUPPET
US president Donald Trump is not a truly independent political leader but merely a puppet of US corporations, military and intelligence, and who serves their interests, Syrian President Bashar Assad has told the Latin American TeleSUR TV network.
Trump pursues “no own policies” but only executes the decisions made by the “intelligence agencies, the Pentagon, the big arms manufacturers, oil companies, and financial institutions,” the Syrian leader said in an exclusive interview with TeleSUR.
He referred to the fact that Trump came to power on a political platform promising a departure from the interventionist policy of the previous US president, Barack Obama, but soon forgot his promises and ordered a missile strike against the Syrian air base following a chemical weapons incident in Syria’s Idlib province.
The Syrian president also said that it is “a complete waste of time to make an assessment of the American president’s foreign policy” as “he might say something” but what he really does depends on “what these [US military and business] institutions dictate to him.”
He also added that it “is not new” and “has been ongoing American policy for decades.”
