CBSN: ‘Rare’ for Trump To Intentionally Stay Away from Politics in Speech for Troops in Afghanistan

‘Especially now that President Trump seems to be all consumed by the impeachment inquiry’

RUSH EXCERPT:

JIANG: “Yeah, I do, and you are right that it is rare. Especially now that President Trump seems to be all consumed by the impeachment inquiry. It is what he wants to talk about and defend himself about even at campaign rallies. Really every chance he gets he brings it up, but I think today was different because he knows his crowd. Regardless of who he is talking to, what he is talking about, he understands what those in the audience expect him to say and I imagine it would be pretty awkward for him to be in Afghanistan, addressing these men and women who serve our country and talking to them about a hoax or a witchhunt or a scam, as he likes to call the impeachment inquiry.”
