Neocon Ben Shapiro Throws Another Anti-Trump Fit on Twitter

Published

on

Ben Shapiro continues to show off his neocon credentials.

In a tweet storm on February 28th, Shapiro attacked Trump’s latest summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. This meeting discussing de-nuclearization in North Korea ended abruptly with Trump leaving the negotiating table without any agreement.

Shapiro went as far to say, “Trump should be grateful for Cohen distracting everyone from the massive moral and diplomatic debacle that just unfolded in Vietnam”, referring to the media’s obsession over the Michael Cohen testimony conducted before Congress.

The gatekeeping commentator then derided Trump’s efforts as “amateur hour”. As a staunch Never Trumper, Shapiro will take advantage of any opportunity to lambast Trump. On foreign policy matters, where Shapiro neocon colors shine, he will always virtue signal his loyalty toward the political status quo.

For a start, Shapiro and his ilk have no business lecturing Trump on diplomacy. Neoconservative foreign policy has dominated during the past few decades and it has done nothing to fix relations with countries like North Korea.

Indeed, countries like North Korea and present-day Venezuela are emblematic of socialist failure. These country’s governing models are reprehensible and should be condemned. However, intervening in these countries or pushing manufactured regime change are sub-optimal strategies filled with unintended consequences.

Much to middle America’s dismay, the DC “experts” still don’t get this as they continue to waste hard-earned taxpayer dollars on foreign policy adventures. When John Bolton types derail negotiations in the North Korean case or saber-rattle in the Venezuelan case, it’s clear that neocons will do everything they can to revert to the same failed foreign policy approaches of yesteryear. That’s why they’ve made a concerted effort to infiltrate the Trump Administration and derails his America First agenda.

It would behoove neocon naysayers like Ben Shapiro to put their petty grievances with Trump to the side. After all, Trump has decades of negotiation experience in the private sector unlike most of these armchair pundits and self-proclaimed foreign policy wonks. Negotiation is a drawn-out process. Trump coming out with an agreement on the first attempt would be suspect.

As Trump himself had pointed out in The Art of the Deal, you have to be willing to walk away from the table in order to get a favorable deal. Talks of Trump’s negotiations being doomed are simply premature when considering his negotiation track record.

The fact that Trump was able to get Kim Jong-Un at the table in the first place, speaks volumes.

For that reason, Trump and company should continue the negotiations process.

Let’s be honest, we need more dialogue with nations, rogue or friendly. With someone who possesses Trump’s negotiating prowess, the U.S. can finally break free of the neocon foreign policy cycle.

For a seasoned neocon like Ben Shapiro, whose political existence is predicated on foreign policy conflicts, this is a nightmare scenario. That’s why we can only expect Shapiro to continue casting doubt on President Trump’s efforts to denuclearize North Korea.
