The Neocons are fighting hard to come back and control Trump’s foreign policy

There is a battle between the GOP foreign policy establishment and outsiders over who will sit on Trump’s national security team.

The fight pits hawks and neoconservatives who served in the former Bush administrations against those on the GOP foreign policy edges, who favour US retrenchment.

The sudden return of some Neocons into the fray (John Bolton in particular) is largely due to the influence that Robert and Rebekah Mercer seem to be wielding over Trump’s campaign.
