Sessions: ‘I Truly Believe’ Trump Has the ‘Temperament’ to President

‘He’s got a clear vision about some of the most basic things we need to know’

KARL: "But as I mentioned, you are a longstanding member of the Senate armed services committee and you are the chairman of Trump’s foreign policy team.Let me get back to Martha in Baghdad. She’s got some questions for you as well.
RADDATZ: "Thanks, Jon. Senator Sessions, we’re going to take a closer look at what’s going on here with the battle against ISIS in just a few moments, but first this will be the challenge confronting the next president. There have been lots of questions raised about Donald Trump’s judgment, his knowledge of foreign policy, does he have the temperament to be commander-in-chief of our armed forces?
SESSIONS: "I truly believe he does. He’s got a clear vision about some of the most basic things we need to know. First, ISIS is a threat. He has stated that clearly. And he will use all our power to effectively destroy ISIS. He’s also said he’s dubious about nation building, overextending our troops, committing the United States in a way that we can’t financially afford and shouldn’t send our troops to — at so much risk. I think that is a healthy view, too."
