Sen. Bennet: Trump Is the Weakest Foreign Policy President of Our Lifetime

‘We’re seeing this play out in Iran where basically, since day one, he’s played into the hands of the hard-liners in Iran’

EXCERPT:

BENNET: "I’m sad to say it’s true. I think Donald Trump has proven over and over again that he is the weakest foreign policy president of our lifetime, or of my lifetime anyway. And we’re seeing this play out in Iran where basically, since day one, he’s played into the hands of the hardliners in Iran when he ripped away the Iran deal without any replacement, stepped back from a negotiated agreement that our allies had supported, the rest of the world had supported, and had nothing to replace it with. Then he’s been provocative and provocative. And the Iranian regime is odious and malevolent and terrible, we all know that, so why would we want to make matters worse by stoking the hardliners’ position in Iran? It’s completely inexplicable except by the President’s complete lack of a coherent strategy and I think innate weakness of his foreign policy which we’ve seen not just in the Middle East but with respect to Russia and China, and certainly North Korea."
