Trump appeared to believe he still had ‘foreign policy powers’ after leaving White House: Author

Former President Trump appeared to believe he still had “foreign policy powers” after leaving the White House, according to author Ramin Setoodeh, who interviewed the former president at length for a new book.

Setoodeh described on CNN’s “The Source” what it was like sitting down with the former president to interview him, telling host Kaitlan Collins that Trump was the “happiest” when he was talking about “The Apprentice.” He said Trump’s mood would shift when he began talking about the White House.

“And then he would talk about what he did at the White House, and he would become gloomy, and resentful, and unhappy, and refer to Afghanistan and Joe Biden. But he also seemed to think that he still had some foreign policy powers,” he said Tuesday.

“And there was one day, where he told me he needed to go upstairs to deal with Afghanistan, even though he clearly didn’t,” he said.

The author also noted that Trump referred to it as “the Afghanistan.”

Setoodeh, the co-editor-in-chief for Variety, interviewed Trump six times for his book, “Apprentice in Wonderland: How Donald Trump and Mark Burnett Took America Through the Looking Glass,” which was released Tuesday.
