Donald Trump’s Foreign Policy Team Is…Um…

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.


As you all know, I’ve been eagerly awaiting Donald Trump’s announcement of his foreign policy team. He promised it a couple of weeks ago, but he’s been busy and I guess real life got in the way. We all know how that goes. He didn’t announce anything last week either. So how about this week? This morning, Mika Brzezinski asked him if there’s a team:

Yes, there is a team. There’s not a team. I’m going to be forming a team.

There you have it. Like Schrödinger’s cat, there is, there isn’t, and there might be a team. But until the box is opened, we won’t know for sure.

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
