Wrote an opinion piece about presidential runner-up Donald Trump, quote: "He advocated a “total and complete” ban on Muslims entering the United States for an unspecified period of time, doing his best to wipe out years of goodwill built with countries like Jordan and Egypt while painting a bigger terrorist bulls-eye on Americans’ backs. He’s even bragged that he’d “get along very well with” Russian President Vladimir Putin, the autocrat who took Crimea by force and continues to prop up Syria’s despotic President Bashar al-Assad. A President Trump seems likely to escalate tensions abroad and to create unnecessary and dangerous hostilities, while hollowing out our values so that we are no longer the beacon of the free world. "
He has served as a member of the Board of Directors of the Center for National Policy, the Board of Directors of OneVirginia2021, and the Truman National Security Institute, and is a Principal of the Truman National Security Project. He is a former member of Renaissance Weekend and of the Economic Club of Washington.
Commented on the 2017 pro-White "Unite the Right" rally, quote from the article: 'Michael Signer said he was disgusted that the white nationalists had come to his town and blamed Trump for inflaming racial prejudices. “I’m not going to make any bones about it. I place the blame for a lot of what you’re seeing in American today right at the doorstep of the White House and the people around the president,” he said.''
