Internal Contradictions of Trump BS Machine

December 21, 2016

A coalition of neo-Nazis and hard-right Zionists can be unwieldy.

A representative of the Trump transition has decided to boycott a meeting with the Israeli government after the Israeli Foreign Ministry refused to meet with a member of their delegation. Becky Norton Dunlop, deputy to the senior adviser on Trump’s transition team, was in Jerusalem with a delegation of far-right Bannonite European parliamentarians. But Israel said it couldn't meet with Sweden's Kristina Winberg because of her party's "neo-Nazi tendencies." Faced with that rebuke, Dunlop decided to boycott the meeting entirely.
