Donald Trump’s shortcomings on foreign policy extend way beyond his inability to name terror group leaders on a radio interview. The entirety of his utterances reveal a potential president who would reshape U.S. foreign policy into a mess of conflicting and often incoherent policies, and delegate the most important issues of national security to as-yet unnamed subordinates.
The press is jumping on Trump’s admission to conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt Thursday that he didn’t know the names of the leaders of top terror groups and didn’t seem to care about the differences between those groups.
“Do you know the players without a scorecard, yet, Donald Trump?” Hewitt asked.
“No, you know, I’ll tell you honestly, I think by the time we get to office, they’ll all be changed. They’ll be all gone,” Trump replied.
