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. His new book is “The Madman Theory: Trump Takes On the World”.
Sciutto explains that there is no strategic logic or so-called “madman theory” guiding Donald Trump and his control over the country’s foreign policy. Sciutto 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.
Jim Sciutto also details 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.
