from Sputnik News:
Sources close to the president of the United States have apparently reported divergent takes on how to capture his policy approach succinctly, but all the stabs at the “Trump Doctrine” are revelatory in one way or another.
A recent article published in the Atlantic claims to have found the true picture of US President Donald Trump’s approach toward politics, which is often portrayed as thoughtless, chaotic, authoritarian and whimsical: Trump follows the “F*ck Obama Doctrine.”
Speaking with personal friends of Trump and administration officials, the Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg reports that Trump is just fine with having his presidency be defined as a nullification of former President Barack Obama’s signature achievements.
“People criticize” the 45th president “for being opposed to everything Obama did,” a Trump administration official said, “but we’re justified in canceling out his policy… There’s the Obama Doctrine and the F*ck Obama Doctrine. We’re the F*ck Obama Doctrine.”
Another White House official refuted the claim that it might be “too early” to determine if Trump has a coherent political philosophy while speaking with the Atlantic. “No, there’s definitely a Trump Doctrine,” the senior official noted.
“The Trump Doctrine is, ‘We’re America, B*tch.’ That’s the Trump Doctrine,” the White House source said. Another US official offered a closely related explanation of the doctrine: “We’re America, Bitches.” When asked if the official knew about the theme song of the movie “Team America: World Police,” “America, Fuck Yeah!” the official responded in the affirmative.
Other pithy descriptions of the Trump doctrine by current US officials included, “No friends, no enemies” and “permanent destabilization creates American advantage.”
