Kissinger: Don't Nail Trump to His Campaign Promises

The U.S. and the world's situations are fluid and President-elect Donald Trump's positions policies will similarly be, too — so do not expect him to stick unilaterally to his campaign promises, Henry Kissinger, 93, said Sunday.

One should not insist on nailing [Trump] into positions that he had taken in the campaign, Kissinger, who won the 1973 Nobel Peace Prize for his role in ending the Vietnam War, told CNN's "Fareed Zakaria GPS."

Kissinger met with President-elect Trump on Thursday and said he came away seeing Trump differently than the campaign coverage which might have painted him as obtuse.

"It was of a determined president, a president-elect, who is making the transition from being a campaigner to being a national strategist and was trying to inform himself on the various aspects of the current situation," Kissinger told Zakaria of his Trump impressions from the meeting.

"We should give him an opportunity to develop the positive objectives that he may have and to discuss those," Kissing added.

The first one that really counts is to hold the HildaBeast accountable for her ongoing misdeeds! Between mishandling of classified information to assisting in the murder of our embassy staff to cover up illegal arms sales to her own affiliated body count.

LOCK HER UP!

12:36 Guess you missed his announcement yesterday on this. Ain't going to happen. All your going to end up with is a red hat.

He's probably only forgiving Hillary of her crimes to calm her supporters. He should lock them up too for death threats and disturbing the peace.

You do know that the first amendment has limits? You cannot yell fire in a crowded theater and you cannot make death threats and think you are protected.
