Should Donald Trump become president, he would have a slew of lofty foreign policy promises to fulfill. Trump has vowed to decapitate ISIS, persuade Mexico to pay for a wall along the border, and impose harsh penalties on imports from China, and he’s said he would “probably get along with [Russian President Vladimir Putin] very well.” So who’s advising the Republican front-runner on his foreign policy platform? On Tuesday’s episode of MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Trump struggled to confirm the existence of a foreign policy team on his campaign, just a day after his rival Marco Rubio unveiled an 18-member National Security Advisory Council.
As reported by NBC News’ Ali Vitali, Trump stumbled over a question from Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski.

Somehow, Brzezinski’s co-host Joe Scarborough managed to respond to her question even more bumblingly than Trump.
