“You know I’ve been there two and a half years, a little over that, and I've never seen anything like this. Broad strategy, I think Trump had it right: we can’t be the policemen of the world. But the execution here has been panned across the political spectrum."

“This is a blemish that to me, along with the call that Biden made on the southern border about undoing policies that were actually working just because they were Trump’s - I don’t know that he survives this leading...
