Senator Tom Cotton strongly went after Hillary Clinton this morning, but Chuck Todd asked him to make an affirmative case for Donald Trump.
Cotton objected to Todd telling him, “What you outline as a foreign policy is the exact opposite of Donald Trump and seems, really, closer to Hillary Clinton.” He attacked Clinton on pretty much every major foreign policy decision she made during President Obama‘s first term.
Todd then repeatedly pressed him on what’s the case for Trump, as opposed to just making the case against Clinton. Cotton dodged and said, “Donald Trump can ultimately make the case for himself.”
Todd was persistent, saying he doesn’t seem like an “enthusiastic Trump supporter” and observing that Trump “is not running on a foreign policy that is anywhere closer to what you would like to see.”
