In Conversation: Chauncey DeVega & Jim Sciutto – Vladimir Putin is Donald Trump’s “Honey Trap”

The fascinating mystery of Trump's approach to Putin - CNN

LISTEN

Jim Sciutto is CNN’s chief national security correspondent and co-anchor of CNN Newsroom. Sciutto previously served as ABC News’ senior foreign correspondent. As a foreign correspondent and in his other professional roles, Sciutto has traveled to and reported from more than 50 countries including Iraq, Iran, and Afghanistan. Sciutto’s new book is “The Madman Theory: Trump Takes On the World”. He explains that there is no strategic logic or so-called “madman theory” guiding Donald Trump and his control over the country’s foreign policy. He warns that America’s foreign policy is now guided by Donald Trump’s personal whims, delusions, authoritarianism, narcissism, greed, corruption, and personal fealty to Vladimir Putin. He goes on to detail how Donald Trump has brought the United States to the brink of what could have been a horrible war with North Korea and Iran – but it was only because the country’s senior military officials did not allow Trump to follow through on his worst impulses that disaster was avoided.
