Bill Kristol: Inappropriate for Trump to Attack American Institutions Abroad

‘I think it’s inappropriate for an American president to attack American institutions abroad’

EXCERPT:

KRISTOL: “I think it’s inappropriate for an American president to attack American institutions abroad, and the media is one of them. We’re on the media here so we’re more concerned about the media, but he shouldn’t denigrate American intelligence agencies either or other political parties or other candidates or former presidents. I was in the White House 25 years ago. We were very careful, really, with Vice President Quayle on trips, not to criticize the Democrats who control Congress, try not to criticize other American institutions or other Americans. So unfortunately that has eroded gradually over the years. President Trump has taken that erosion to a new level. I think it’s unfortunate. I think he gave a pretty good speech on the other hand.”
