Intellectuals Against Knowing

Jeannie Morefield

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The majority of the Trump administration's planned and ongoing military deployments are in regions where the military was already deployed by previous administrations in the name of the War on Terror. [...]Trump's national security and national policy statements are littered with the vocabulary of the very experts who find him so terrifying. Trump, by contrast, is a living nightmare. [...]when Bill O'Reilly asked him why he supported Putin even though he is a "killer," Trump shot back, "There are a lot of killers. [...]it impedes any theorizing about how the widespread appeal of Trumps xenophobia at home might, in part, be the product of U.S. foreign policy abroad, the bitter fruit of the War on Terror and its equally violent predecessors. [...]Trump's foreign policy is unprecedented not because of what it does, but because Trump will openly say what it does-and because of what that then says about us as a nation.
