Ian Bremmer, a political scientist, said it’s been a good week for President Trump and a good week for CNN to step outside its bubble on CNN’s “New Day” Friday morning.
“You really want the big picture?” Bremmer asked before continuing. “This has been a good week for Trump. We get out of CNN Land for just a second, and 4-percent growth in the United States. The Europeans backed down on trade; he now looks like a winner on that front. The North Koreans? More progress with remains coming back.”
“The stuff about Michael Cohen — I mean, is he credible? He was Trump’s lawyer. If you’re a Trump supporter, this is just blah, blah, blah,” he added. (RELATED: Trump Accuses Michael Cohen Of Lying About Russian Meeting)
“Now, the Helsinki stuff was really bad for Trump and he had to walk it back and the Republicans were hitting him pretty hard for a day, and now he’s basically said, ‘OK, I’m not going to do the summit this year, after all. I’m not going to recognize Crimea as a part of Russia.’ Nothing actually happened,” Bremmer concluded.
Bremmer is a political scientist and is president of the Eurasia Group.
As Bremmer stated, despite the release of an unheard and unsavory tape of Trump and Cohen conversing, the president’s week has included getting American remains from the North Korean War back from North Korea and continued economic growth.
