Daniel McAdams from the Ron Paul Institute for Peace and Prosperity joins Jeff to discuss Trumpian foreign policy in light of the president's recent speech on Afghanistan.

The costs of our wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria—human and economic—keep piling up. How do such deeply unpopular wars go on so long? Why do sensible notions of peace and non-intervention fail to gain a foothold in Congress or the White House? How does the War Party in DC plays both sides? And, how do they silence anti-war voices like Tulsi Gabbard? This is a no-holds-barred discussion of the grim realities behind US foreign policy.
