Anderson Cooper: ‘Rather Breathtaking’ to See Trump’s Reversal on a Number of Big Issues

Tonight’s Anderson Cooper 360 opened with the eponymous host covering how President Trump was “making a 180 on so many of the statements he made during the campaign it was enough to give the White House whiplash.”

Today, the president said he no longer thinks NATO is “obsolete” and indicated he does not plan to call China a currency manipulator as he did during the campaign.

Cooper pointed out that’s in addition to Trump’s past position on striking Syria and then said this:

“In fairness, when circumstances change, people expect a president to change with them and perhaps what they’re hearing reflects that. Still, it is rather breathtaking.”

Cooper spoke with Jim Acosta and took note of the different “tone” Trump expressed today, as a panel on CNN did earlier today.

Acosta said in the entire time he’s covered Trump, he’s “never seen this many reversals” before.
