JOHN DICKERSON (HOST): Jeffrey, I want to switch now to you. Donald Trump gave two interviews this week, one to the Washington Post editorial board and then two sets of interviews with The New York Times, particularly on foreign policy. On the New York Times conversation, what did you glean from his foreign policy worldview?
JEFFREY GOLDBERG: I gleaned that he has no understanding of the post-war international order that was created by the United States, that he has no understanding of why we maintain alliances with such treaty partners as Japan and South Korea, Britain, NATO, and the importance of maintaining those stable relationships with other democracies, shows that he has no idea of nuclear doctrine. I mean, other than that, it was cool. It was really remarkable to imagine that someone who shows so little interest in understanding why the world is organized the way it is organized is this close to the presidency of the world's only superpower.
