Posted on 11/08/2019 6:30:10 AM PST by Sir Napsalot
President Donald Trump spurned the advice of establishment diplomats as he fought to implement his campaign promises, according to a report by Vox.
The November 7 article described the elected presidents decision to ignore the self-serving view of agency officials:
Senior State Department officials and career diplomats repeatedly warned the Trump administration that taking away legal protections for [400,000 migrants] from El Salvador, Honduras, and Haiti would put national security, foreign relations, and the immigrants American-born children at risk, according to internal State Department documents.Trump was elected president on an America First platform, and he has had to fight the establishment every day to implement his platform.
But Trump did it anyway and concerns about the 2020 election appear to have helped determine the timeline for requiring immigrants to leave, according to the documents, which will be released in a report by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee [and Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ)] on Thursday.

to put America first.
Read the whole article, if your blood pressure can stand it.
Enemies of the People:
CIA, FBI, DOJ, State Dept
Departments filled up with really stupid people.
They should be required to do town halls across America, and suffer the righteous retribution.
As Ive not heard (yet?) that pdjt has drained the Snake Department swamp of its Nazi alligators, his ignoring of their advice is clearly the right thing to do. Hopefully, hell get yo the plumbing job soon, too.
It just sickens me how much our President and his team must fight to implement his agenda.
Looks like we had term limit laws on wrong people...I dont think they will ever be taken out but they can be not promoted if Trump can get the top tear of these worker ants...
They spent 50 years filling the government with leftist hacks so they could control policy and now there’s a President who doesn’t defer to them and let them rule? WTF, that wasn’t the plan! Outrage!
The Globalist Leftists stuffed Foggy Bottom in particular but lots of other federal agencies with their cohorts. Those federal bureaucrats then recommend policies that suit their politics - ie the agenda of the Democrat Party. Then Democrats claim the recommendations of the bureaucrats are not political and our elected leaders overruling them is done solely for political reasons. Laughable BS.
Everybody knows whose team federal bureaucracies are on.
The State Department has not been on the side of the USA or its citizens at least since the FDR administration. Maybe longer. (Woodrow Wilson administration?)
Other people I've known who have spent much of their career in DC have told me that while Foggy Bottom may be the most elitist of the bureaucratic clubs, they are not the only one. In fact, it is the rule, not the exception.
Do we luv our Prez or what?
But the American People do and so do Hispanics. You wouldn't expect Hispanics but they know how Illegals take away their jobs.
The DemocRATS have completely flipped-flopped on Illegal Immigration. Like John Kerry, their Idol for President, they were Against it and Now are COMPLETELY FOR IT IN THE WORST WAY IMAGINABLE.
President Trump uses others to bump ideas and thoughts over but he makes the decisions...has to really piss the hubristic bastards off.
It takes a lot of courage to defy these career establishment creeps.
I was listening to a lefty on CNN yesterday talking about why Bloomberg would make a good POTUS because he deferred to his staff and advisors to make decisions as Mayor. Such a great leader, just let your staff make the tough calls for you.
The Kenyanesian Usurper had eight long years to stuff our government full of enemies of the citizens.
they are obviously more concerned with Foreigners than US CITIZENS!
That applies equally to Amnesty Senators, only WE have to fire them and we are not doing it.
Flimsey Grahamnesty is the poster child for Bush League Republicans committed to securing every border in the world but OURS.
DemocRATS and RINOs put patches on it.
They ENCOURAGED it.
The illegal alien inundation was INTENTIONAL.
