During an interview on Fox News’s The O’Reilly Factor, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump claimed that he knows more about foreign policy than President Obama.
O’Reilly asked Trump to respond to Obama’s comments that Trump is unfit to be president.
The Republican nominee went haywire and answered, “I think he’s the worst president maybe in the history of our country. He’s been weak. He’s been ineffective. Look at the so-called recovery setting record lows. I guess not since 1949 has there been anything like it. You look at home ownership. Look at what happened as an example; he talks about Ukraine. I believe I know more about foreign policy than he knows. Look at Ukraine. He talks about Ukraine, right? How tough he is. How tough he was with Russia. In the meantime, they took over Crimea, and I understood that. And most papers covered what I said accurately. Some didn’t because the press is so dishonest.
Donald Trump claims to know more about foreign policy than President Obama, but here is exactly what he said during an interview that aired on ABC’s This Week:
STEPHANOPOULOS: They took away the part of the platform calling for the provision of lethal weapons to Ukraine to defend themselves.
Why is that a good idea?
TRUMP: Well, look, you know, I have my own ideas. He’s not going into Ukraine, OK?
Just so you understand. He’s not going to go into Ukraine, all right?
You can mark it down and you can put it down, you can take it anywhere you want.
STEPHANOPOULOS: Well, he’s already there, isn’t he?
TRUMP: OK, well, he’s there in a certain way, but I’m not there yet. You have Obama there. And frankly, that whole part of the world is a mess under Obama, with all the strength that you’re talking about and all of the power of NATO and all of this, in the meantime, he’s going where — he takes — takes Crimea, he’s sort of — I mean…
Trump had no idea that Russia was already in Ukraine until George Stephanopoulos told him that they were. Trump had just promised that he would keep Russia out of Ukraine less than 30 seconds earlier during the same interview.
Donald Trump is making it up as he goes along, and it laughable that he would claim to know more about foreign policy than President Obama. The backlash from his attacks on Capt. Khan’s family has sent Trump into a downward spiral that has included him throwing a baby out of his rally, stabbing Paul Ryan and John McCain in the back, and his own campaign trying to blame President Obama for the death of Capt. Khan that occurred four years before Obama was president.
The nation is watching Donald Trump meltdown in real time before our very eyes.
Trump is losing it, and his flip out on Fox was another step away from sanity. At this rate, Trump might not make it to Election Day.
