Rick Klein: ‘If There Is a Trump Doctrine, the President Is Stumbling into that Doctrine’

‘Trump as commander in chief, the actions on the world stage, they are bucking up the mood among Republicans’

EXCERPT:

RADDATZ: OK, Rick Klein. But all the talk of national security -- and it seems like all we've talked about for a couple of weeks here. Let's go back to the domestic agenda of President Trump. And he's not really making much progress there -- health reform, tax reform, the travel ban stuck in the courts. So what's up?
 
KLEIN: Well, if there is a Trump doctrine, the president is stumbling into that doctrine. And the context that you mentioned is critical here. We're coming up on the end of that critical first 100 day period, and he is striking out. Nothing going on health care, tax reform, infrastructure. None of these things is moving. But the hope among Capitol Hill Republicans actually is that these things are connected. And what I've heard from several member of Congress on Capitol hill is that this Trump as commander in chief, the actions on the world stage, they are bucking up the mood among Republicans.
