Trump Foreign Policy Dream Team Set To Be Announced

Two weeks ago, Donald Trump said he’d announce his foreign policy team in two weeks. “We have a great team of people,” he promised. One week ago, he said the announcement was a week away. “[It’s] a team that is recommended highly by me and to me … and a team that I’ve both seen and read about both in papers and seen on your show and other people,” he teased in a town hall with Joe Scarborough.

Well, my tickler file says today’s the day, and Trump is not a guy to embellish things. If he says a week, he means a week. Unlike the unaccountable government slugocracy run by our current crop of losers, that’s how things work in the no-excuses business world.

So that’s that. The greatest foreign policy team ever—not that Trump needs advice, of course—should be announced within hours. Are your toes tingling yet?


We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
