Gorka: Ignore Trump-the-Businessman’s Tweets
Deputy assistant to President Donald Trump Sebastian Gorka said Friday that Trump’s past tweets arguing against military action in Syria shouldn’t be held against him because Trump wasn’t president then.
“I think you’d admit that the things you say when you’re in a certain situation without the requisite experience that may come later shouldn’t be held against you,” Gorka told radio host Laura Ingraham.
“What one says as a businessman who has not had TS/SCI clearance and sat in the situation room, or what one says on the campaign trail in a politically charged environment for a year, is incredibly different to the perspective you may have after you take on the mantle of the commander-in-chief, and you are the person responsible for the safety of all Americans,” Gorka said. “That’s what experience tells us, and to judge based on statements they made when they were not in that position of responsibility.”
Indeed, it is pure crazy-talk to take seriously what someone said before they were president. You have to elect a fellow to find out what they think!
And, moreover, what does a businessman know about foreign policy?
