GOP Rep. Peter King says he has serious questions about Donald Trump's "romance" with Russia President Vladimir Putin — and the GOP presumptive presidential nominee's apparent stance to let Russia "take care of Syria."

In a Sunday interview on CBS News' "Face the Nation," the New York lawmaker said he's endorsing Trump, but has reservations about his foreign policy.

"I don't think his Asian policy is coherent," King says. "He wants to get in a trade war [with China]… If he wants to have leverage over China how can he talk about taking troops out of Japan and South Korea?"

King adds he's "very concerned about this romance he seems to have with Putin and as far as stating that he wants Russia to take care of what is happening in Syria, that's [President] Barack Obama's policy."

King says there's "a lot about Donald Trump I like."

"He's brought in blue collar Reagan Democrats which we lost over the years," he said. "There's real chance — I want him to make his policy more coherent. I'm endorsing him, going to vote for him. Before he I can actively campaign, I have too see much more on foreign policy."
