In today’s episode of Lions of Liberty, Marc welcomes Scott Horton back to the show to help take a look at the foreign policy team that President (whoa, it’s real now…) Donald Trump has assembled. Scott has been on the show two previous times, is the host of AntiWar Radio and the Scott Horton Show, opinion editor at AntiWar.com, and is most recently the Managing Director of the Libertarian Institute.
In the show, you’ll hear:
- Why Scott co-founded the Libertarian Institute, who else is involved, and what is their mission?
- What Scott thinks of Rex Tillerson’s potential when it comes to relations with Russia, and why neocons are so obsessed with the framing of Russia as an adversary.
- Scott looks at General James “Mad Dog” Mattis, why he is so hawk-ish against Iran, and whether some libertarians are right to be optimistic about him.
- Marc and Scott discuss Trump’s pick as ambassador to Israel, David Friedman (no, not that David Friedman), and whether Trump can finally make the “big deal” to bring peace to the Middle East.
