WASHINGTON — Former Vice-President Dick Cheney has been criticizing President Donald Trump’s foreign policy, even comparing it with that of former President Barack Obama.
Speaking with Vice-President Mike Pence this weekend, Cheney warned that Trump’s decision to withdraw troops from Syria and complaints about NATO were making American allies question the dependability of the U.S. as a partner.
The two vice-presidents were appearing at a closed-door retreat hosted by the American Enterprise Institute in Sea Island, Georgia.
A person in the room confirmed Cheney’s remarks, which were first reported by The Washington Post. The person requested anonymity because of the conference’s off-the-record nature.
