Reuters — Trump is shaping new 'liberal' order to block Russia, China, Iran, says Pompeo


"Neoliberal order." There, fixed it for you.
In a twist on Trump’s “America First” policy, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Trump was not abandoning its global leadership but instead reshaping the post-World War Two system on the basis of sovereign states, not multilateral institutions.
“In the finest traditions of our great democracy, we are rallying the noble nations to build a new liberal order that prevents war and achieves greater prosperity,” Pompeo told diplomats and officials in a foreign policy speech.
He actually said that and with a straight face.

Translation: America will no longer "lead from behind" though proxies, but directly as the imperial power.
Alluding to Trump’s policies in a speech on Monday in Cambridge, Massachusetts, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini warned of “the rule of the jungle” replacing the rule of law.
Maybe this explains Trump's hair. Does he think he is the lion king?

“I am certain that, at some time in the future, President Xi and I, together with President Putin of Russia, will start talking about a meaningful halt to what has become a major and uncontrollable Arms Race. The U.S. spent 716 Billion Dollars this year. Crazy!” Trump wrote in a tweet, the day after he returned from the Group of 20 meeting in Argentina.

He’s a golden lion tamarin.

This monkey from Brazil is not golden, but orange.

Incidentally, Trump-bashers screamed when Trump called himself a "nationalist."

I say there's nothing wrong with nationalism as long as nationalism does not entail aggression toward other nations.

Neoliberals are anti-nationalists, since they are globalists. And they have seduced many leftists into opposing nationalism in all forms.
