Dick Lugar Still Making Sense

April 12, 2017

I have always respected the depth of foreign policy knowledge former Indiana Senator Dick Lugar possesses.  It was for that reason I sent him a campaign check many years back when he was in the presidential primaries.  I like smart thinkers and know we need them on both sides of the political aisle.  So today when I read how Lugar interprets the White House under President Trump as it concerns international affairs I knew others might also find it of interest.

Former Sen. Richard Lugar (R-IN), “who personifies the measured approach to U.S. foreign policy,” offered his first comprehensive critique of President Trump’s “forays into world affairs,” the Indianapolis Star reports.

“It wasn’t pretty.”

Lugar called Trump’s foreign policy goals “simplistic, prosaic and reactive,” according to prepared remarks. They are characteristic of “a selfish, inward-looking nation that is being motivated by fear, not a great superpower with capacity to shape global affairs.”
