Trump accuses Hugh Hewitt of asking gotcha questions on foreign policy

Donald Trump went on with Hugh Hewitt tonight and talked foreign policy, but it was more about names that he wasn’t familiar with, like General Soleimani, Hassan Nasrallah, Zawahiri, al-Julani, and al-Baghdadi.

It was a gentlemanly conversation, but Trump accuses Hewitt of playing gotcha with these names on foreign policy. Hewitt disagreed and discussed it with Trump.

The bottom line from the interview ends up being this:

DT: And you know what? In that case, first day in office, or before then, right at the day after the election, I’ll know more about it than you will ever know. That I can tell you.

HH: Oh, I hope so. Last question, so the difference between Hezbollah and Hamas does not matter to you yet, but it will?

DT: It will when it’s appropriate. I will know more about it than you know, and believe me, it won’t take me long.

HH: All right, that, I believe.

DT: But right now, right now, I think it’s just something that, and you know what, if you ask these candidates, nobody’s going to be able to give you an answer. I mean, there may be one that studied it because they’re expecting a fresh question from you. But believe me, it won’t matter. I will know far more than you know within 24 hours after I get the job.

HH: Donald Trump, congratulations on taking the pledge today. Your numbers are going to go up as a result of that.

As an aside, Carly was on before Trump and was asked the same questions. We’ll post her response as well when it becomes available.
