Donald Trump’s Foreign Policy Team Is…Um…

As you all know, I’ve been eagerly awaiting Donald Trump’s announcement of his foreign policy team. He promised it a couple of weeks ago, but he’s been busy and I guess real life got in the way. We all know how that goes. He didn’t announce anything last week either. So how about this week? This morning, Mika Brzezinski asked him if there’s a team:

Yes, there is a team. There’s not a team. I’m going to be forming a team.

There you have it. Like Schrödinger’s cat, there is, there isn’t, and there might be a team. But until the box is opened, we won’t know for sure.

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily bluster—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?
