Sen. Klobuchar: Trump Treats Peace Talks 'Like Game Show'

(CNN/"State of the Union")

President Donald Trump's breaking off of Taliban talks amid a secret Camp David invite shows he treats "foreign policy like it's some kind of game show," according to Sen. Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., a Democratic presidential primary candidate.

"The whole thing doesn't quite make sense to me," Klobuchar told CNN's State of the Union."

"And it's just another example of the President treating foreign policy like it's some kind of game show."

Klobuchar, who is a longshot for the Democratic presidential nomination behind front-runners Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Peter Buttigieg, also ripped the president for leaving the U.S. in a "worse place on the world stage."

"He loves showmanship," Klobuchar told host Jake Tapper. "He wants to have that moment, but then all the details aren't done and then we end up in a worse place on the world stage than we were before."

In going up against President Trump in 2020, Klobuchar told NBC's "Meet the Press," it is still early for the Democratic primary in determining a front-runner, noting former presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton were not leaders in polling at this early stage.

"It is early," she told host Chuck Todd. "People want to win so badly, right? So they look at the names that they know. The people that have been around awhile, and it is going to take this fall and this next five, six months – that's a long time in politics – for them to get to know the rest of us."
