Reliable Never Trumper Erick Erickson has confirmed the suspicions of many America Firsters— Conservative establishment operatives behind the scenes are working to undermine President Donald Trump.
In a tweet on April 15, 2019, Erickson derided the idea that the GOP is the “Party of Trump”.
Instead he believes “most of the major people behind the scenes running the party and its election strategies still greatly dislike the man and, when he is gone, will work to take it all back, leading to bigger fights.”
This makes sense when considering the Trump administration’s recent foreign policy moves, which have seen neoconservative officials like John Bolton and Mike Pompeo take more hawkish approaches to countries like North Korea and Venezuela.
This is of course makes Erickson happy, who has routinely been a cheerleader for Republicans who support the military-industrial complex and interventionism abroad like Ben Sasse. However, when it comes to protecting the U.S. border, Erickson has fallen in line with the Swamp establishment. BLP reported on a piece published on Erickson’s site scoffing at Trump’s wall plan a few months ago saying that it wouldn’t work to protect the southern border.
Despite Erickson’s hand-wringing, GOP voters couldn’t care less about what Swamp operatives and members of the commentator class like Erickson have to say. They are firmly behind President Trump’s America First agenda as evidenced by a BLP article highlighting how the overwhelming majority of GOP voters place immigration as their number #1 issue for the 2020 elections.
Erickson can continue to complain about Trump, but this latest tweet shows that Trump has enemies both on the Left and on the Right.
The latter should worry any America Firster since they will likely undermine Trump behind the scenes.

Did Bernie Sanders Just Endorse a Neocon Regime Change Foreign Policy?
Is Bernie Sanders the anti-war candidate that many non-interventionists are making him out to be?
Journalists Jacob Crosse and Barry Grey presented some interesting observations about Sanders’ foreign policy views.
Sanders criticized the assassination of Iranian General Qassem Suleimani in January and also stressed his opposition to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
During the Iowa presidential debate, Sanders loudly boasted, “I not only voted against that war, I helped lead the effort against that war.”
However, Sanders changed his tune when chatting with the New York Times.
The answers the Sanders campaign gave the Times showed its flexibility when it comes to foreign policy.
In other words, the Sanders campaign signaled to the military and intelligence apparatus that Sanders won’t present a threat to their interests and may actually carry out their interventionist agenda.
One question in the survey that the Times sent the Sanders campaign stuck out above the rest.
The third survey question asked, “Would you consider military force to pre-empt an Iranian or North Korean nuclear or missile test?”
The Sanders campaign responded, “Yes.”
Based on this response, Sanders’ is signaling that he’s willing to continue Bush-era policies of “preemptive war.”
Like Obama, Sanders’ opposition to the Iraq War was a matter of politics rather than a principled opposition to regime change wars.
His campaign was also asked, “Would you consider military force for a humanitarian intervention?”
Sanders responded, “Yes.”
Some of the wars that the U.S. carried out in the name of “human rights” have been the Bosnian war and the bombing of Serbia in the 1990s along with the aerial campaign against Libya in 2011 and the Civil War launched in Syria.
All in all, Sanders’ pro-peace/non-interventionist image is at best window dressing.
Under a Sanders presidency, the interventionist status quo will likely stay in place.
