Politico’s Crowley: Trump’s Foreign Policy ‘Doesn’t Look All That Different’ From Hillary, Jeb, or Rubio

On Friday’s broadcast of PBS’ “Washington Week,” Politico Senior Foreign Affairs Correspondent Michael Crowley stated, “if I were a Trump voter, I would be pretty upset, if foreign policy had been one of the issues that I focused on here.” And “I’m seeing a foreign policy that doesn’t look all that different from what you would have gotten from Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush, [Senator] Marco Rubio (R-FL), at least on its foundations.”

Crowley said, “I think that if I were a Trump voter, I would be pretty upset, if foreign policy had been one of the issues that I focused on here. I mean, Trump is responding by going to what the swamp, as he calls it, would call the responsible center. You know, in a lot of ways, I’m seeing a foreign policy that doesn’t look all that different from what you would have gotten from Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, at least on its foundations.”

He continued, “Now there’s the sort of Trump theatrics at the top, and what I’m wondering is, what we might be headed for, is, a foreign policy that’s actually, rather conventional, the kind of foreign policy you would expect from a Jim Mattis-H.R. McMaster sort of nexus, where you have this — you know, these antics from the president, and people are scratching their heads over what did he mean by that, but increasingly saying, actually, it doesn’t matter that much, because I talked to Mattis today, or I talked to Jared today, and he was just with the Joint Chiefs chairman in Iraq. And that’s the level on which the real policy is made, and where the communications happen with foreign countries. That’s what it looks like right now.”
