A Baffled John King Calls Trump Remark ‘A Stunning Public Rebuke’ of Own Military Leaders (Medaite)
CNN National Security Analyst John Kirby spoke with John King on Friday to discuss President Donald Trump’s comments before top military brass and reporters at the White House Thursday night.
Trump held a photo-op with military leaders Thursday, and his ominous remark that the meeting represented the “calm before the storm,” with no further clarification, has been getting the bulk of the media attention today.
But King wanted to address another comment Trump made during the meeting: namely, his on-camera criticism of military leaders that he needs military options “at a much faster pace.”
