“There is plenty of chatter right now about prospective foreign policy advisors in a future Trump administration, if indeed, that is the way the election goes in November. Essentially they fall into two categories: internationalists or America firsters. Republican Internationalists are hawks who say they want to go back to Ronald Reagan’s ‘peace through strength’ opposition to Russia, China, and Iran, while maintaining U.S. alliances in Europe and Asia. … America First nationalists normally want to intervene unilaterally without being encumbered by traditional U.S. alliances and care little for active global promotion of values and democracy, or policing other countries and their conflicts.” (06/03/24)
