Walid Phares.

The foreign policy adviser to Donald Trump discusses a variety of topics.

"Trump's foreign policy adviser on nukes, NATO and China"

"How does Donald Trump see the world? And how would he approach foreign policy as president? Walid Phares, foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign, joins Judy Woodruff to discuss the candidate’s stance on using nuclear weapons, reviewing the future of NATO, fighting ISIS and confronting China."

Furthermore regarding Mr. Phares:

"During the 1980s, Phares, a Maronite Christian, trained Lebanese militants in ideological beliefs justifying the war against Lebanon's Muslim and Druze factions, according to former colleagues. Phares, they say, advocated the hard-line view that Lebanon's Christians should work toward creating a separate, independent Christian enclave. A photo obtained by Mother Jones shows him conducting a press conference in 1986 for the Lebanese Forces, an umbrella group of Christian militias that has been accused of committing atrocities."

Mr. Phares only one of a number of persons advising Donald Trump on issues of foreign policy and national security.

Surprise everyone, but for decades all the various factions that fought in the many-years long war in Lebanon have constituted and occupied ethnic enclaves and continue to do so! Nothing unusual with that, rather a common practise in most parts of the world where you have warring entities.
