Donald Trump reportedly scoffs at the notion of foreign policy experts, charging they are usually "terrible" – and pointing to the "mess" their advice has resulted in around the world.

In a speech in La Crosse, Wis., Monday ahead of the state's presidential primary vote, the GOP front-runner staunchly defended his own foreign policy views, Politico reports. 

"You know, I've always wanted to say this — I've never said this before with all the talking we all do — all of these experts, 'Oh we need an expert …' The experts are terrible," he said. "Look at the mess we're in with all these experts that we have. Look at the mess. Look at the Middle East. If our presidents and our politicians went on vacation for 365 days a year and went to the beach, we'd be in much better shape right now in the Middle East."

Trump, who recently named some of the experts who would be part of his own foreign policy advisory team, says that even without the experts, things couldn't be much worse around the globe.

"They say, 'Donald Trump needs a foreign policy adviser,'" he said. "Supposing I didn't have one, and I have a lot of people. I met last week with a lot of people, all good people. But supposing I didn't have one. Would it be worse than what we're doing now?"

Trump – who last month declared he was his own best foreign policy adviser – took a less critical view later in the speech, Politico reports.

"The people, the experts, and I'm not knocking them, I'm just saying the world is a mess," he said. "We've helped make it a mess. We've totally destabilized the Middle East."
