Ron Paul: several neocons are getting closer to Trump

Donald Trump’s success or failure as the next US president will largely depend on his ability to keep his independence from the “shadow government” and elite structures that shaped the policies of previous administrations, former presidential candidate Ron Paul told RT.


Unfortunately, there has been several neoconservatives that are getting closer to Trump. And if gets his advice from them then I do not think that is a good sign,” Paul told the host of RT’s Crosstalk show Peter Lavelle.

The retired Congressman said that people voted for Trump because he stood against the deep corruption in the establishment, that was further exposed during the campaign by WikiLeaks, and because of his disapproval of meddling in the wider Middle East.

During the campaign, he did talk a little bit about backing off and being less confrontational to Russia and I like that. He criticized some the wars in the Middle East at the same time. He believes we should accelerate the war against ISIS and terrorism,” Paul noted.


But quite frankly there is an outside source which we refer to as the 'deep state' or the 'shadow government'. There is a lot of influence by people which are actually more powerful than our government itself, our president,” the congressman said.

Yes, Trump is his own guy, more so than most of those who have ever been in before. We hope he can maintain an independence and go in the right direction. But I fear the fact that there is so much that can be done secretly, out of control of our apparent government and out of the view of so many citizens,” he added.


On the other side, the racist billionaire, Donald Trump. He played well his role as an anti-establishment candidate, but in reality, he is only a reserve of the establishment. What do you think he would do? Protect the interests of the poor working people or the interests of his billionaire class? Can you guess? It's not that hard. At least let's hope that he will resist against starting a war with Russia as the US deep state (and Hillary of course) wants.


  1. Wayne was optimistic when Obama first got elected, and discussed what the Obama administration should do to make things better. I warned back then that he was being overly optimistic, and that Obama would actually be worse than Bush - I was proven correct. Now Wayne is putting his faith in Trump, even though all signs point to another disaster coming our way during his presidency. Peter Thiel, a Bilderberger, has been appointed to Trump's transition team, which means he will help pick his cabinet. Besides co-founding Paypal, Thiel also co-founded "Palantir", which makes data mining 'security' software for the CIA, NSA, Pentagon, and many law enforcement agencies. I see a police state coming, while Wayne has his rose colored glasses on as usual. He is as wrong about Trump as he was about Obama in my opinion...

  2. Trump is going to disappoint many voters. He is a puppet just as all Presidents since Andrew Jackson. He, will do as he is ordered to do.

    1. Yes, you are probably right. He is just another clown of the establishment like of course Hillary Clinton.
