Donald Trump Jr.: Dick Cheney 'Mad' Trump Putting A Stop To His 'Endless Wars'
President's foreign policy slammed by Mike Pence's successor
Donald Trump Jr. slammed Dick Cheney over his foreign policy following a recent confrontation with Vice President Mike Pence.
“Isn't it fitting that Cheney is the one mad that Trump is ending his reckless and endless wars? I never knew peace would be so unpopular!” Trump Jr. tweeted Tuesday.
Trump took aim at Cheney a day after the Washington Post reported that Cheney and Pence clashed over President Trump’s foreign policy at the American Enterprise Summit in Georgia.
Cheney express 'worry' that Trump’s non-interventionist foreign policy is similar to that President Obama, according to leaks from the private event.
“We’re getting into a situation when our friends and allies around the world that we depend upon are going to lack confidence in us,” Cheney reportedly said.
“I worry that the bottom line of that kind of an approach is we have an administration that looks a lot more like Barack Obama than Ronald Reagan,” he added.
But Pence replied:
“I think there is a tendency by critics of the president and our administration to conflate the demand that our allies live up to their word and their commitments and erosion in our commitment to the post-World War II order.”

“But we think it’s possible to demand that your allies do more to provide for the common defense of all of our nations and, at the same time, reaffirm our strong commitment,” Pence said.
