Republican frontrunner Donald Trump revealed Wednesday who is advising him on foreign policy issues: himself.
Trump has been consistency pressed by members of the media to reveal some of his closest advisers. Specifically, MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinksi has been pressuring Trump to reveal his foreign policy advisers, and on “Morning Joe,” Trump finally obliged.
“I’m speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain, and I’ve said a lot of things,” Trump said. “In fact, in my book, in 2000, I talked about Osama bin Laden, and I do remember somebody putting the book in front of Joe [Scarborough] and Joe saying, ‘No way he talked about it, no way he wrote about Osama bin Laden before the World Trade Center came down,’ and they said, ‘No, he really did.’”
“I know what I’m doing, and I listen to a lot of people,” the real estate mogul added. “I talk to a lot of people, and at the appropriate time, I’ll tell you who the people are, but I speak to a lot of people, but my primary consultant is myself, and I have a good instinct for this.”
Last year, Trump claimed that he received his foreign policy advice from a small handful of advisers, in addition to talk shows.
“Well I really watch the shows,” Trump told NBC’s Chuck Todd last August, according to Politico. “You really see a lot of great, you know, when you watch your show and all of the other shows, and you have the generals and you have certain people that you like.”
