Nicholas Burns: Trump's Wiretap Allegation Is "The Most Dishonest Statement that the President Has Made"

| Mar. 16, 2017

"When in American history has a president accused his predecessor of a felony, of breaking the law? This is unfair to President Obama, who did no such thing. It's unfair to the American people that our president -- our current president -- would stoop so low. And then to prevaricate again and to allege again that there's information forthcoming. This is not serious. It's not how a president should act. It's shameful behavior."

Trump’s cuts would cripple the country’s diplomats when we need them most

| March 4, 2017

The Trump Administration’s threatened 37 percent budget cuts for the State Department and USAID, the most severe for any federal agency.  Professor Burns warns if these reductions are implemented, they will cripple the Foreign and Civil Service when we need them the most to cope with a weakening Europe, violent Middle East and strategic challenges to U.S. power from Russia and China.  He warns that this is simply not a sensible or wise path.

As President Kennedy said more than a half century ago:  “Diplomacy and defense are not substitutes for one another.  Either alone would fail.”
