Former top Obama administration advisers and other veterans of the Washington foreign policy establishment are forming a new group dedicated to opposing President Donald Trump’s “reckless” foreign policy, which they say has made America less safe over the past year.
The new organization, National Security Action, will be led by co-chairs Ben Rhodes, a deputy national security advisor in the Obama White House, and Jake Sullivan, one of Hillary Clinton’s longtime foreign policy hands.
Rhodes, a key architect of the Iran nuclear deal and the Obama administration’s policies in Libya and Syria, says the group will pool the expertise of former government officials and academics to promote an alternative to Trump’s foreign policy agenda.
“On behalf of the broader Advisory Council, we’ve stood up a nimble, campaign-like structure focused on putting forward an affirmative vision of American leadership,” Rhodes said in a statement Tuesday. “Given the enormous stakes over the next three years, we feel a sense of urgency about the need to substantially impact the public debate on national security and the future of America’s role in the world.”
