Trump’s foreign policy is ‘failing everywhere’ and ‘in shambles’ no matter who he fires or replaces: Jeffrey Toobin

Published

On Tuesday, CNN chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin weighed in on President Donald Trump’s decision to fire National Security Adviser John Bolton, with whom he had quarreled bitterly for months.

As Toobin noted, the dismissal is unlikely to change Trump’s foreign policy much — because Trump’s foreign policy is chaos.

“Isn’t the real issue — the cast of characters has changed, but isn’t the real issue that the foreign policy is failing everywhere?” said Toobin. “In North Korea, Kim Jong-Un is shooting off missiles all the time. In Iran, we had a treaty in place to stop nuclear weapons development. Weapons development has started again. Our NATO allies can’t stand us anymore because all we ever do is harass them about their defense spending. That seems to me what matters.”

On CNN Wednesday, CNN analyst Dana Bash slammed President Donald Trump's new plan to give the GOP re-nomination speech at the White House.

"I mean, I don't even know where to start," said Bash. "There is a law called the Hatch Act, where it says that you're not supposed to politic from government grounds. The president is exempt from that, so it may be legal grounds for him to stand on, relatively firmly, to do this at the White House. There are questions about the aides that are working for him to do it. But let's just talk about whether it's appropriate."

Published

CNN's Jim Acosta on Wednesday reported that President Donald Trump this week attended a meeting with his own White House Coronavirus Task Force -- and it quickly became clear that the president is still not taking the pandemic seriously even after the deaths of 156,000 Americans.

“He still doesn’t get it,” the source told Acosta. “He does not get it.”

Acosta's source says that during the meeting on Tuesday, Trump frequently tried to change the subject away from the coronavirus pandemic, despite the fact that the entire purpose of the meeting was to discuss the coronavirus pandemic.

‘Have you ever heard someone whine as much as this man?’ CNN’s Anderson Cooper tears into Trump’s COVID excuses

Published

On CNN Tuesday, anchor Anderson Cooper slammed President Donald Trump after his Axios interview in which he said of coronavirus deaths, "It is what it is."

"For a man who seems to have strength and power, have you heard someone as allegedly powerful and strong as he claims to be — have you ever heard somebody whine as much as this man?" said Cooper. "'It is what it is.' Let me play the last portion of that first exchange again, because he says something telling."

"It is what it is," said Trump in the clip. "But that doesn't mean we are not doing everything that we can. It's under control, as much as you can control it."
