WATCH: Trump Can’t Answer What His Second Term Agenda Is In Soft-Ball Fox News Interview
President Donald Trump couldn’t articulate his second term plans in an interview with Fox News Thursday.
Fox New’s Sean Hannity asked Trump during the interview about his “top priority items for a second term.” Instead of giving specific agendas or plans, Trump rather gave a vague answer, claiming that he overcame his lack of experience as a politician with his talent.
“One of the things that will be really great – the word experience is still good, I always say talent is more important than experience, I’ve always said that – but the word experience is a very important word, a very important meaning,” Trump said.

As Trump couldn’t answer the simple question, he quickly switched the topic to his former national security adviser John Bolton.
“You make some mistakes. Like, you know, an idiot like Bolton,” Trump said. “All he wanted to do was drop bombs on everybody. You don’t have to drop bombs on everybody. You don’t have to kill people.”
Following the report, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) criticized Fox News for making Trump look bad.
“Does FOXNews want Trump Re-elected?” Grassley tweeted.

However, Trump defended the host via Twitter on Saturday.
“[Sean Hannity] dominated T.V. with my interview on Thursday night, more than [CNN] & MSDNC COMBINED,” Trump said in his tweet.
Do not believe the Fake News Media. Oklahoma speech had the highest Saturday television ratings in @FoxNews history. @seanhannity dominated T.V. with my interview on Thursday night, more than @CNN & MSDNC COMBINED. These are the real polls, the Silent Majority, not FAKE POLLS!
