Skip to comments.Ron Paul blasts Trump: ‘Foreign policy is in shambles’

Former Rep. Ron Paul said he wished President Trump would "flip-flop" his policy on Iran and criticized Trump's loyalty to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Saudi Arabia.
"I think our country is not doing so well. Our foreign policy is in shambles," the Texas Republican said. "Unfortunately, the one place where I wish he would flip-flop every once in a while or change his policy completely is dealing with Iran. He is steady on it, he said it on the campaign. He's very loyal to Netanyahu and Saudi Arabia."
Trump authorized airstrikes that killed Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani and Iraqi militia leader Mahdi al Muhandis.
A leader of the conservative anti-interventionist movement, Paul made a career out of promoting anti-war foreign policy points. His son Sen. Rand Paul mirrored his father's comments this afternoon when called Trump's actions "feckless."
Ron Paul, who ran for president as a Libertarian in 1988 and then as a Republican in 2008 and 2012, suggested the president is digging a hole that offers "no easy way out."
"I think this chaos has been tremendously increased, and it's hard to figure out how they can work their way out," Paul said. "But, it's a hole that's been dug for a long time, but I think the hole by Trump has gotten much deeper and much faster, and there's no easy way out. Overall, it represents the stupidity of the interventionist foreign policy."
Paul's co-host, Daniel McAdams, suggested that if Democrats want to impeach the president, they should focus on Thursday's unilateral decision to strike military leaders in Iraq.
"If you wanted to impeach Trump, I think this would be a decent thing to do," McAdams said. "Without any authorization from Congress, he sent a drone or helicopter to assassinate a foreign political and military leader from a country with which we are not at war."
No Ronnie you puss, foreign policy is straight forward. You f-ck with the US, you will pay.
Impeachment attempt #47.
It's not Russia, it's not Ukraine, it's not emoluments, it's not this, it's not that. It's all about killing murderous terrorists. That's impeachable right there!
Shut up you CRAZY OLD MAN!
Go back to hawking worthless investment schemes, Dr. Paul. According to you, the stock market should have crashed several times already.
Litterally NO ONE cares what Earmark Paul thinks.

That’s right, Little Ron, leading is not easy which is why you were never in charge of anything
What that guy needs is a good whuppin...
How did the President get the Iranians to attack the US Embassy in Baghdad?
The US performed a flawless direct proportional response to the people who planned, and organized, that internationally recognized act of war. A target which has direct documented links to the assassination of 700 US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan
That you infantile scum are trying to make him out as a victim indicates you are the same sort of scum as he was.
Too many root canals.
Pipe down Ron.
Don’t become a whining echo
of the Democrat traitors.
I think the foreign policy is KICKING ASS!! (FINALLY!!)
We have been Uncle Sucker for too long
Ron Paul is jealous of Trump.
It would be nice if it wasn’t always one camel jockey or another directing our foreign policy. If it isn’t Saudi sunnis when we have republicans, it’s shia Iranians when we have a democrat.
I hate ‘em both. Nobody in the middle east, including the Israelis worry much about what is best for America.
He’s still alive?.......................
Ron Paul is once again showing his true colors.
As my old daddy used to say....
“The Nut don’t fall far from the Tree.”
I like Rand except when he’s stupid.
Right now he’s stupid.
The president acted directly to defend and to revenge American lives. It had nothing to do with starting a war in the Middle East.
