Trump's Foreign Policy Team Is Making War Plans Without Telling Him



Donald Trump denied reporting from The New York Times that his administration is planning to send 120,000 troops to the Middle East in response to Iran, saying on Tuesday that he has “not planned for that.”

But Trump’s denial of the report doesn’t prove that The New York Times is pushing “fake news,” as the president claims. Instead, it just shows that Trump’s national security team is leaving him out of key foreign policy plans.

“Is it possible the president of the United States has so outsourced his foreign policy to a neocon hawk (John Bolton) that he doesn’t know what the hell’s going on?” MSNBC’s Chris Matthews asked on Tuesday.

New York Times reporter Peter Baker responded, “It’s certainly possible that they have discussed war plans without him at this point. I mean they’re not bringing to him for actual approval.”
