CNN’s Fareed Zakaria: ‘We Essentially Have No Diplomacy Going On in the United States’

CNN’s Fareed Zakaria tonight had a rather blunt assessment of what President Trump undercutting his own Secretary of State means.

Earlier tonight Bob Corker criticized the President in The Washington Post by saying that Trump can’t “castrate” Rex Tillerson.

Zakaria told Anderson Cooper, “It’s very clear now that we essentially have no diplomacy going on in the United States, and the way in which the President has treated his Secretary of State is the most dramatic example of it.”

The Secretary of State needs to have the President’s full confidence, and with Trump undercutting Tillerson, Zakaria said, the latter is basically a “dead man walking.”
