Trump Offers Hints Toward His Foreign Policy Team, Including Secretary of State

Radio host Hugh Hewitt cut right to the chase in his interview with Donald Trump Thursday morning. Did he mean to incite violence against Hillary Clinton in his rally the other day when he said "Second Amendment people" could do something to stop Hillary Clinton's Supreme Court nominations? Hewitt asked.

"Of course not," Trump said. "We're talking about the power of the voter. We’re talking about the tremendous power, and you understand this probably better than anybody, the power behind the 2nd Amendment, the strength behind the 2nd Amendment."

Trump also doubled down on his claims that President Obama and Hillary Clinton are the co-founders of ISIS, noting that in contrast to the narrative Clinton is spinning about his unhinged temperament, she is actually the more "dangerous" candidate.

This prompted Hewitt to ask Trump about his potential foreign policy team. If he named experts like Ambassador John Bolton as secretary of state and Jim Talent as secretary of defense, wouldn't he add some serious foreign policy chops to his campaign and silence critics who say he has no experience in this important area? The GOP nominee seemed to like the idea.

"I think John Bolton’s a good man," Trump said. "I watched him yesterday, actually, and he was very good in defending me in some of my views, and very, very strong. And I’ve always liked John Bolton. Well, we are thinking about it, Hugh. I will say that. We are thinking about it. I mean, the negative is what I told you. But we are seriously thinking about it."

Hewitt and Trump also discussed the upcoming presidential debates, rampant media bias, and what Trump would do should he not win the White House. You can listen to their whole conversation here.
