Oh, come on. Given what policy has been, how hostile could an oil-based takeover be?
I would hate to have come out and implied that Donald Trump or his administration were innocent of anything. It's way too early to do so, for starters, and there is no particular indication that he is ever likely to be innocent of much.
On the other hand, the choice of accusation here is worse than suspicious. How can there by a hostile takeover of foreign policy by an oil industry that has long already controlled foreign policy? The implication here is that it is the Republicans specifically who are involved, and therefore that the Democrats are not. And this is after 8 years of a Democratic administration's acts of war in countries in and around the oil region, and money from 5 oil-producing countries to the Democratic campaign coffers--a foreign manipulation of American elections for which actual evidence has been produced, unlike the "Russian hacking" malarkey.
Come on. It is not like there is apt to be anything politically innocent or good about the current Republican administration. But how can any constructive unity evolve amid this sort of deceit?
