President Trump is NOT the guy you think you voted for:
Donald Trump the presidential candidate made it very clear that his view was that the United States can no longer police the world.
President Trump, by contrast, appears to laying out US foreign policy to do that now more than ever.
In the ultimate expression of the “world’s policeman” stance of the US, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson declared today that the United States was prepared to punish all those “who commit crimes against the innocents anywhere in the world.”
The context of Tillerson’s comments was a speech at a memorial to a Nazi massacre, but the broadness of the declaration clearly was intended to go far beyond simply being a reiteration of the US justification for intervention against Nazi Germany in World War 2.

Here is a pertinent excerpt from my book No More Patriots (available in the Kindle Store):
In 1918 the German sociologist Max Weber defined the modern state as “a human community that successfully claims the monopoly of the legitimate use of physical force within a given territory”. During his terms as US President, with the enthusiastic support of most members of Congress, George W. Bush attempted to define the global state as an inhuman community which would have the monopoly on the legitimate use of physical force anywhere in the world. The global authority he tried to establish was neither democratic nor compassionate. As he aptly stated on the eve of his first inauguration, “If this were a dictatorship, it would be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator”. It was a mistake for us to have believed that he was alone in this quest, or that our next President would abandon it. If a brutally enforced global dictatorship was what the deep state ... actually had in mind, we were in real trouble.
"Open" borders (i.e., no borders), a globalized economy, and the willingness to punish anyone, anywhere, for just about any crime, real or imagined, are the very hallmarks of a global government.
Candidate Trump's promise of "America First" was BULLSHIT. President Trump and his coterie of corporate stooges are rabid globalists. Someday soon there will be a global government whether you like it or not.
