CNN Host Jake Tapper Doesn't Understand Trump's 'Completely Contradictory' Foreign Policy Plan

"I don’t fully understand the contradiction that he seems to propose when it comes to going after ISIS."

After listening to Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump's "America First" foreign policy pitch Wednesday, CNN anchor Jake Tapper said he doesn't "fully understand" what the billionaire businessman was proposing when it comes to the war against the Islamic State.

Speaking with retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, the CNN host called Trump out for ironically criticizing U.S. policy incoherence while "some people have trouble finding coherence with his foreign policy."

But there was one policy proposal in particular Tapper told Flynn he found to be "completely contradictory," and that was Trump's comments on dealing with the Islamic State, of which the GOP candidate said, "Their days are numbered."

"I don’t fully understand the contradiction that he seems to propose when it comes to going after ISIS even tougher than they’re being pursued now while also not getting involved in another war in the Middle East," Tapper said. "That seems to be completely contradictory."

In response, Flynn told Tapper that Trump's sole purpose is "winning."
