Confused Trump on Foreign Policy Team: “Yes, there is a team. There’s not a team. I’m going to be forming a team”

Thanks for clearing that up, Pumpkinhead.

Donald Trump has three words for those awaiting his foreign policy team: “in due time.”

During an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” co-host Mika Brzezinski pressed the issue of Trump’s repeated promise to have already announced his team of foreign policy advisers. On Feb. 9, for example, Trump told Fox News that he would have a list ready in “about two weeks.” That was nearly a month ago.

“Well, I’m not doing it this morning, Mika. You do always ask me that question, and I said I would have it in due time, and I’ve been meeting with some tremendous people, and I haven’t made exactly my decision yet, but you’ll have it in due time,” Trump said.

Brzezinski then asked if there is a team at all. Trump announced last week that Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions would chair the campaign’s national security advisory committee.

“Yes, there is a team,” Trump said, before reversing himself within seconds, “There’s not a team. I’m going to be forming a team. I’ve met with far more than three people, and I’ll be forming a team at the appropriate time.”

Meanwhile, MSNBC Trump fluffer Jo Scarborough was really defensive about his role as a campaign aide to Trump:

Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski angrily defended the frequent appearances of the “accessible” Donald Trump on the MSNBC program after concluding yet another interview Tuesday with the Republican frontrunner.

Brzezinski and host Joe Scarborough have been repeatedly hit for being too cozy with Trump both on and off their program, and they have constantly fought back against any questions about their integrity. At one point, Trump himself thanked them for being “supporters.”

The criticism appeared to hit a breaking point with the hosts as they wrapped up their interview with Trump.

“I should mention you are set to join us live again tomorrow, so we look forward to that, and good to have you this morning,” Brzezinski said.

“Thank you very much,” Trump said.

    We need Mittens and his super duper foreign policy experience. What happened in Michigan last night where Mittens father was once the governor?

    First Trump has to complete his David Duke investigation. Then, he’s got a Twitter war with an obscure journalist who wrote something vaguely critical of him to wrap. Then, oh yes, he’s gonna create the best foreign policy team ever.
