CNN’s Zakaria on Trump Afghanistan Speech: ‘Where Is Steve Bannon When You Need Him?’

CNN’s Fareed Zakaria broke down President Trump‘s Afghanistan speech tonight, but one part in particular stuck out in his exchange with Don Lemon.

LEMON: You think his approach was right? You think it’s the only viable approach?ZAKARIA: No, I think this was a moment––this was a real lost opportunity. I actually feel like, where is Steve Bannon when you need him? This was an opportunity to really have a re-think, to sit back and ask fundamentally, what can we do?

At one point a few minutes later, he also said that “Breitbart is rightly confused and upset” with Trump adopting the “establishment strategy on Afghanistan.”
