Fareed Zakaria: ‘Doesn’t Make Any Sense’ for Trump to Cancel the Meeting with Putin
ZAKARIA: "You know, I think at times Donald Trump is just planning a reality television show. He just knows that the 'will he-won't he, will he-won't he' can go on. It doesn’t seem to make much sense. If you’re worried about Ukraine, it would make sense to have the meeting to press President Putin on the issue. What exactly are you cancelling it, to protest? Has the United States made certain demands of the Russians? Frankly, it doesn’t make any sense to cancel the meeting to me. You’d want to have the meeting precisely because there is a crisis in Ukraine, you want to get the Russians to understand what they can do, maybe act as an honest broker between the two sides. Donald Trump is so unpredictable that sometimes you think that there is a plan, there is a predictable unpredictability. And he knows, as you say, keeps us all watching and interested and at the edge of our seats."
