Dem Rep. Garamendi: Trump Did Right Thing on Iran, But 'The Problem Here Is He Talks Too Much'


By Josh FeldmanJun 22nd, 2019, 4:37 pm

Congressman John Garamendi (D- CA) said today President Donald Trump did the right thing by calling off bombing Iran, but added that the president’s problem is “he talks too much.”

Garamendi spoke with Fox News’ Leland Vittert, who noted the criticism Trump is receiving from both Democrats and Republicans. Trump himself today remarked, “Everybody was saying I’m a warmonger, and now they say I’m a dove, and I think I’m neither… I’m a man with common sense.”

Vittert asked if Trump has a point “that at least in the eyes of the Democrats he can’t seem to do anything right.”

Garamendi responded, “I think the problem here is he talks too much.”

He called Trump’s decision not to strike “appropriate” but added that “he did the wrong thing by talking too much” because “these are things that you need to keep close to your vest––hold your cards close and then have a clear plan of where you need to go and how you might get there.”

3. The whole thing is wrong from the start

This is a manufactured crisis initiated by the Trump administration when they unilaterally pulled out of the nuke pact. Everything they have done since then has been wrong. Deciding to not bomb Iran is only less wrong than bombing Iran. It is all a self generated cluster fuck.

Democrats discussing this mess need to start with “Trump created this mess”.
