trump has won arizona by more than 20 points over ted cruz, his closest rivals. trump, who has the intellectual grasp of foreign policy to rival that of sarah palin, can get away with declaring that the US should all but pull out of NATO (one day before the brussels attacks) and limit its military presence around the world and still go on to build his support. most people have pointed out that NATO is based in brussels. pulling out of NATO as well as a pull out in Asia (which trump also has advocated) would end the USA’s influence in international politics.
the washington post writes, the horror in belgium is a rebuke to trump’s foreign policy.
