Election HQ Krauthammer: Trump 'Dominated' Meeting With Mexican President
Charles Krauthammer said that Donald Trump's short-notice meeting with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto will help the Republican candidate.
"He took a risk and he pulled it off," Krauthammer said on Special Report, calling the appearance on the world stage "a big step."
"He not only held his own; I think in some ways, he sort of dominated. The Mexican president was rather defensive, asking for respect. Trump, I thought, spoke well."
Krauthammer pointed out that Trump also did something uncommon for a visiting statesman in choosing the reporter to ask them a question.
"It was Trump who took charge, naturally. He walked off the stage as the dominant guy. He pulled it off. I think he really helped himself."
