WaPo’s Eugene Robinson: Hillary Clinton the ‘Closest Thing to a Hawk Left in This Race’


Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson talked about a potential match-up between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton for the White House this fall.

One of the subplots is how the two candidates vary on foreign policy, with Clinton being closer to a “hawk” than any of the candidates remaining in the contest.

“I think one really interesting area — we’ll learn more today when Donald Trump gives his foreign policy speech, we will learn more about that,” Robinson said. “But, that is emerging as a pretty clear difference between the two. Hillary Clinton is more interventionist, more traditional forward-leaning, forward position of U.S. foreign policy. She’s the closest thing to a hawk left in this race. And Donald Trump is not. He talks about pulling back. He talks about focusing on nation-building at home, much like President Obama did, actually. And so, that’s going to be an interesting contest.”
