Libertarian Views Trump As a Recruitment Vehicle

From a Libertarian Party news release, explaining libertarian beliefs about President Trump. The application of libertarian philosophy expressed by the party may or may not universally represent what is a libertarian position on the topic for all adherents.

CNN interviewed Libertarian National Committee Chair Nicholas Sarwark at FreedomFest last week in Las Vegas, Nevada. From their coverage published on July 25:

“If there’s one person relishing Washington’s Trump-era dysfunction, it’s Libertarian Party Chairman Nicholas Sarwark, who sees the tumult as a prime recruitment opportunity.

“‘I have to give thanks to Donald Trump and the Republican Party,’ said Sarwark, a former defense attorney who has led the Libertarian Party since 2014. ‘Their success in getting control of government and then showing that they can’t do anything once they have that control has been a better argument for joining the Libertarian Party than anything I could say.’”
