To this point in the campaign, Donald Trump has been coy as to who is advising him on foreign policy. On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” the GOP candidate finally revealed the identity of his top foreign policy advisor — himself.
“Who are you speaking to consistently, so that you are ready on day one?” host Mika Brzezinski asked him.
“I’m speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain and I’ve said a lot of things,” Trump responded. “In fact, in my book in 2000 I talked about Osama bin Laden.”
He continued later, “So I know what I’m doing, and I listen to a lot of people. I talk to a lot of people, and at the appropriate time, I’ll tell you who the people who are.”
“But my primary consultant is myself and, you know, I have a good instinct for this stuff,” Trump said.
