Donald Trump came late to a meeting with our closest allies, issued threats, called for the return of a hostile power thrown out because it invaded a neighborhood country and then stormed out early.
On CNN's Saturday afternoon show, host Ana Cabrera invited two guests on to analyze the situation.
David Rhode of The New Yorker was confused by Trump's statements and said that they make it easy for leaders in countries like Canada and Germany to stand up to Trump and enjoy support at home.
"He's opening up a Pandora's box for him politically," Rhode said. "Russia intervened in the U.S. election to help Donald Trump win. All of our intelligence agencies agree with this. So now he's offering Russia back into the G8 and blaming Obama for Russia invading a neighboring country? It's all so astonishing. I don't think it's working—I don't think the bullying is working."
CNN correspondent Michelle Kosinksi analyzed Trump's argument that Russia should be back in the G8, and his blaming of Obama for the illegal annexation of Crimea.
"It just doesn't make a lot of sense," she said.
