Norman Podhoretz, a founder of the neoconservative movement, said he backs Donald Trump for president, reports The Forward.
Podhoretz, 86, said, during an interview with The Times of Israel, that any concerns he had about Trump are outweighed by his trepidation at a Hillary Clinton presidency.
He cites especially her role, as secretary of state in President Barack Obama’s first term, in shaping last year’s deal in which Iran rolled back nuclear development in exchange for sanctions relief.
Norman Podhoretz says his son, John Podhoretz who is part of the #NeverTrump movement. continues to try to persuade him about Trump’s demerits.
“He thinks that Trump is worse, and I think that Hillary is worse,” he said. “He keeps trying to persuade me. He sends me things, articles, showing how bad Trump is. And I keep saying, ‘I know all this."
The father is correct, They are both terrible and Trump would significantly expand the warpath.
