John Hickenlooper, President Trump, Sasha Pfeiffer discussed on On Point with Tom Ashbrook | Podcasts

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

And the President Trump is doing. I'm not quibbling without I do think treating despots as with with respect and giving them a platform by. Which they can spread false information is probably not good public policy for the country, but I do I do believe that we got to reach out to everyone, though. The one thing I have the biggest problem on with President Trump's foreign policy is it he is alienated and turn his back on our closest allies. And, you know, we create NATO at the end of World War, Two to try and keep this world safe to make sure we never had another World War and suddenly for the first time in, in my lifetime, our NATO partners are wondering whether they can depend on the United States. Whether we'll be there when they need us. And I think that's a question that the United States needs to answer loudly, and boldly that we are still committed to our strategic alliances and that we treat our our allies as our closest partners. We only have about maybe forty five seconds left for this question. But I want to bring up age because you talked about the word socialism, having some baggage it primarily has that baggage for people who lived through the Cold War saw the effect of socialism on eastern European. Entries. What about younger people who can't really identify with that? How do you how do you address that age gap? You have between you and younger voters. Well, I think you've got to find ways to paint pick paint pictures with words, and that's my challenge is, I've got to demonstrate how, what socialism did for working people, especially they suffered the most in those socialist countries. Do you know how you would paint that picture working on? Maybe we'll do it in the next segment.
