This doesnt show inconsistency in foreign policy. Was it incoherent? As you presented it yes.

HE DID ANSWER THE QUESTION.

from your source

“We do not win any more. This country doesn’t win,” he said. “We don’t win with … We can’t even beat ISIS. And by the way, just to answer the rest of that question, I would knock the hell out of ISIS in some form. I would rather not do it with our troops, you understand that. Very important.”



He has been advocating for a light international foot print. He basically said either air strikes or through international efforts as his already published foreign policy states.

Sending troops is not his preferred way. He would rather people in the ME solve their own problems. Air strikes against known positions seems like a viable option.

The thing with Trump is: The package is more important than the content.


I watched some speeches of him and i could still not tell you what his politics are.
I get: he will build a huuuuge beautiful wall, expell all muslims and yeah, attack china!?

Else?

I heard no solutions to economical problems (which are huuuuge), foreign policy, social security, healthcare and so on and so forth.

It s all just hot air and entertainment, much like Wrestling.
I guess he has no clue himself.

This is really no big deal. Literally making things up as you go along by drawing from a deck of strategy cards would be far more effective than the US foreign policy of the last 65 years.

If the guy claims he doesn't want to reveal his foreign policy


Obama never reveled a foreign policy and the press never pushed him on it. He definitely never explained in during the campaign.

He doesn't want nuclear! But... he wants to pull troops out of South Korea and Japan.. and replace them with.. nuclear weapons. huh! Or he wants South Korea to start paying for us being there. The guy has as much foreign policy savvy as the loud obnoxious dude at work who really has very little clue what is happening, but likes to boastfully make sweeping statements that when examined.. mean nothing, or can't be backed up with stuff like.. I dunno.. facts and common sense.

And he wants to build a frigging wall to keep Muslims (and others) out and supports blocking entry for Muslims... unless they're rich... then he'll build a red carpet. Yea, he's all there.

For Trump it seems lately every question is a gotcha moment. Because he doesn't have a platform. He has no ideas other than ridiculous ones.
Just tell me when this show is over or if he decides to have P.T. Barnum as a running mate.

No, I think the last 30 years especially have been far more sinister than a mere accident.
You actually have to try really hard to make a mess as big as the one the Clinton's, Bush's and Obama have.

There was no editing in that interview. It was shown exactly as it happened. When Trump said they edited it He Lied.

Really? Because I think most of us would want someone who can answer those questions. It's not a job at MacDonalds. He had better be qualified to tackle real world issues with real world leaders. This isn't a joke.
Today there could be orders for building more nuclear weapons because of his mouth. A regular nuclear arms race like we haven't seen since the 80s.

Clinton had the budget in the black. We had a surplus. Bush single handily almost destroyed the economy while his cronies got fi;thy rich. Obama was obstructed by congress with more filibusters in two terms then in the whole history of the country.

Worthless.
Like saving the auto industry, and saving the banking industry and saving the world from assholes like Osama Bin Laden and providing health care to millions who never had it before. Job growth is up, the economy is better, hell, houses are even being built again. But hey whatcha done for me lately huh?

He claimed the same thing with the Chris Matthews interview.
MSNBC had to file a disclaimer this morning stating that the interview was aired uncut and unedited.

He flip flopped like a flounder on the deck of a boat. Had to back peddle and change ahem clarify his positions on every issue. As soon as his advisors told him what that was.

Nothing like the truth to make a point. Some people actually developed blindness to what they don't want to see. I think Obama did a hell of a job in spite of the hurdles the GOP piled up in front of him.

Trump said he would not take nukes off the table for Europe.

What is the problem?

What if Europe is taken over by space aliens or isis?

Would Trump get a high 5 if he said, no nukes for Europe?

How did the other runners answer that question?
