Mary Anne Marsh on Trump: You Help Americans When They’re in Trouble Abroad and Don’t Tweet To Be Thanked

‘Donald Trump has used Twitter to keep people focused on other issues rather than this one’


SMITH: "But Mary Anne, let's face it, his punishment — their punishment could have been a lot more severe had they been left in China."
MARSH: "Absolutely. But it’s his job. Tens of thousands of Americans work in federal government congressional offices — David worked in one, I was a Senate staffer — in this country and around the world. And you help Americans when they are in trouble abroad. You don’t tweet to ask to be thanked. You don't tweet about it."
