Once in a while one gets a peek at the true thinking of groups, even if they try to hide it. That was the case this last week when politician Michele Bachmann claimed she is advising Donald Trump on “foreign policy”.
I can see Bachmann being of some value to a Republican Presidential Candidate as a liaison to the Religious Right. Trump does not have credentials there and may need someone to advocate for him. It seemed strange she would use the term “foreign policy” so I was interested to know what she might have to say about a topic she seemed never to know much about.
Many may not remember that Bachmann ran for the Republican Party nomination for President four years ago. She told the press she was certain God wanted her to be President. Her qualifications, in addition to her elected post in the Minnesota State Legislature, was that she and her husband ran a reparative therapy business. Reparative therapy claims to “cure” gay people but has been outlawed in some states a fraudulent. I mention all of this to explain why I was curious as to what Bachmann had to offer in the field of foreign policy.
What she is interested in is bashing Muslims. So far as we know, that is her only “foreign policy” position. I don’t know what she thinks about the thousands of Muslims who lived in her district when she was in the legislature.
At least we have learned the advice potential President Trump will receive.
