Description

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), chair of Donald Trump’s national security advisory committee, appeared on "Fox News Sunday" today to explain Trump's approach to foreign policy. Sessions said that Trump's basic philosophy on national defense and foreign policy is similar to that of Henry Kissinger. "It’s realism, it’s caution, it’s being more cautious about how we deploy our men and women in harm’s way, not to be involved in excessive efforts to alter, create democracies in countries that are not ready for it," Sessions explained to guest host John Roberts. He asserted that most Americans believe we need to be more cautious when getting involved in engagements in other countries. Sessions added that Trump is aware of how much he doesn't know about foreign policy, and that's why he's trying to get the best advice he can. "The details are so complex in some of these countries. You have to have the best intelligence you can possibly get," Sessions said. He noted that it's not necessary for a president to know every detail the day they take office, but it's important for them to seek advice from the best people possible before taking any action that could have long-term consequences.
