Washington Post columnist Max Boot said that President Trump was an “extremist” on CNN’s “Erin Burnett OutFront” Tuesday.

“He goes from one extreme to the other.”


“You know, Donald Trump is an extremist,” Boot, a vocal Never Trumper, said. “He goes from one extreme to the other. A few months ago he was calling Kim Jong-un little rocket man and saying he was going to rain fire and fury on him, which I thought was very ill-advised, that kind of nuclear sabre-rattling.”

“But now he’s gone from war mongering to kind of this naive appeasement, talking about this guy as being honorable and we’re going to do a great deal together, and he’s agreed to denuclearization, which is not the case at all.”

“So, you know, he’s got to pick a more moderate, middle, centrist path that makes sense instead of swinging from these extremes, that are just incredibly harmful and damaging to U.S. credibility.” (RELATED: Rubio Adviser: I’d Rather Vote For Stalin Than Trump)
