Bill Kristol on Trump UN Speech: ‘More Normal’ Than I Would Have Expected (Mediaite)

Bill Kristol told Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC earlier this afternoon that President Trump’s U.N. speech was “more normal” than he would have expected.

He said it “sounded a little like George W. Bush to me” and that “for all of Donald Trump’s America First talk and repudiation of the Bush-McCain-Romney foreign policy,” it came across as “more standard,” even with the “Trumpian aspects.”

Kristol added that this may be due to the influence of foreign policy advisors and others in the President’s circle.
