MSNBC’s Jeremy Bash said President Donald Trump’s foreign policy showed clearly that Russia had “leverage” over him.
Bash, who served as chief of staff at both the Department of Defense and the CIA, disagreed with other “Morning Joe” panelists who said Trump’s view on foreign policy was incoherent.
“I would say that the president actually is operating from a coherent perspective in that he totally pushes away intelligence, he doesn’t listen to it, and in every instance you can go down the line, his foreign policy is one where Russia has leverage over him,” Bash said. “It’s kind of inexplicable.”
Bash said Trump’s positions on Syria, Venezuela, NATO, the G-7 and 2016 election interference favor Vladimir Putin’s interests.
“That’s a pretty coherent worldview, and it’s totally at odds with what the U.S. intelligence community believes,” Bash said.
Trump’s former White House doctor Ronny Jackson wins GOP runoff for Congress in Texas
Ronny Jackson, the former White House physician and President Donald Trump's onetime nominee for secretary of veterans affairs, has won his bid for the Republican nomination for a solidly red congressional seat in the Texas Panhandle.
With 100% of polling locations reporting, though some mail-in ballots will still need to be counted, Jackson held a lead of 11 percentage points over Josh Winegarner, a veteran agriculture expert and lobbyist. Jackson and Winegarner were competing for a seat being vacated by U.S. Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Clarendon, who is retiring and held the seat since 1995.
