‘I Would Not Care That Much, to Be Honest With You’

I’ve seen respected voices argue that Ukraine should be invited to join NATO. I’ve seen respected voices argue that the U.S. and its allies do not have a strong interest in ensuring Ukrainian independence from Russia.  I’ve seen candidates declare that they’re divided, or that they feel the need to study the issue more.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a major presidential candidate — much less a front-runner! – declare that he doesn’t really care:

CHUCK TODD: So you wouldn’t allow Ukraine into N.A.T.O.?

DONALD TRUMP: I would not care that much to be honest with you. Whether it goes in or doesn’t go in, I wouldn’t care.

CHUCK TODD: So –

DONALD TRUMP: If it goes in, great. If it doesn’t go in, great.

Salute the man for his honesty!
