Trump Wants to Ally with Russia Against Terrorists. Putin Is Allied with Syria and Iran. What's Up with That?

Donald has delivered his "major" foreign-policy speech. It's tough and weird.

Donald Trump must owe Putin's buddies. Otherwise, he's beyond obtuse.

Vladimir Putin is clearly an ally of Bashir al-Assad. And now he's using Iranian bases to continue and intensify air attacks on Syrian rebels.

And yet Donald Trump spoke in his "foreign-policy" speech about working together with Putin on fighting terrorism. What gives? Hard to know. We do know he continues to lie his way through this campaign, and WaPo Fact-Checker continues to call him out. Here's their evaluation of Trump's foreign-policy pronouncements.

The "pivot" continues to underwhelm.
