Josh Rogin: Trump Makes Statements Like Johnson’s Aleppo Answer Every Day

‘When he talks about these issues, it ranges from sort of a cursory knowledge to absolute falsehoods’

ROGIN: "No, I don't think it was an effective explanation because I don't think that Trump, or the Trump campaign for that matter, has fully thought through the implications of this tweet and the statements that he made about this issue yesterday. I mean, look, you can criticize Hillary Clinton for pledging details or being defensive against her record, but no one can say that she doesn't have a firm grasp of these issues and experience dealing with them. no one can say that about Donald Trump. I mean we talk about Gary Johnson being disqualified for not knowing where Aleppo is. Donald Trump makes a statement like that almost every single day. And when he talks about these issues, it ranges from sort of a cursory knowledge to absolute falsehoods."
