Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has been sitting quietly when it comes to the new President-Elect Donald Trump administration.
But now, he’s speaking out, saying Trump should nominate a Secretary of State who shares his anti-war viewpoints, rather than an establishment neoconservative.
“It’s important that someone who was an unrepentant advocate for the Iraq War, who didn’t learn the lessons of the Iraq War, shouldn’t be the secretary of state for a president who says Iraq was a big lesson,” Paul said.
“I’m hoping that if there’s a public discussion of this before it happens, people in the incoming administration realize that regime change made us less safe and the Iraq War made us less safe,” Paul said. “We don’t need, as our chief diplomat, someone whose idea of diplomacy is dropping bombs.”
What do you think?
A newcomer against foreign wars for Trump’s Secretary of State?
Maybe even Rand Paul, himself, for the job?
