Noam Chomsky, described by many as a frequent critic of Trump, accusing the president of obscuring his pro-corporate policies of tax reform and deregulation with “outrageous” statements on abortion, gun rights, and other cultural issues to appeal to his base.
“Democracy Now!”, which is described as “An independent news program features international journalists, grassroots leaders, independent analysts, as well as ordinary people directly affected by world events and U.S. policy” recently interviewed MIT professor emeritus and avowed left-wing political theorist Noam Chomsky on the fallout of the Mueller Report.
What he said might surprise you. He argued that Democrats have over-invested in the Russia collusion story and that they may have “handed” a huge gift to President Donald Trump.
Noam Chomskyis quoted:
“As far as Trump collusion with the Russians, that was never going to amount to anything more than minor corruption, maybe building a Trump hotel in Red Square or something like that, but nothing of any significance,” Chomsky explained. “The Democrats invested everything in this issue. Well, turned out there was nothing much there. They gave Trump a huge gift. In fact, they may have handed him the next election. That’s just a—that’s a matter of being so unwilling to deal with fundamental issues, that they’re looking for something on the side that will somehow give political success. The real issues are different things.”
