GOP Strategist: Trump Faces High-Stakes Decisions on AG, China, Border Wall and More
Republican strategist Holly Turner joined Steve Doocy on "Fox & Friends" to analyze some of the high-stakes decisions facing President Trump after the Thanksgiving holiday.
She said perhaps the most important decision is determining the next attorney general, following the resignation of Jeff Sessions and the appointment of Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker.
"I don't think he feels like he needs to rush into that decision. I know he's vetting candidates very carefully right now. He needs someone who is going to be aligned with him philosophically, and that's what's most important to him," Turner said.
She added that in the past, Trump might have tried to select a candidate whom Democrats approve of, but after the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation spectacle, the president is only concerned about doing what he thinks is best for the country.
Turner said the second thing Trump must focus on is trade negotiations with China ahead of his meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping at the G-20 summit in Buenos Aires at the end of the month.
"I think we are on a path toward success in these trade negotiations," she said, arguing that China, not America, is "bearing the brunt" of the current tariffs.
She said Trump likely wants to give it a little more time, so that the U.S. enters trade negotiations with the maximum leverage.
Turner went on to say Trump should also prioritize immigration, including funding for his long-promised border wall, and criminal justice reform. Watch the "Fox & Friends" segment above.
