    Trump admits there is no exit strategy if war breaks out with Iran (video)

    Reporter: Do you have an exit strategy for Iran, if war does break out?
    Trump: You're not going to need an exit strategy. I don't need exit strategies.

    Because just saying "All options are on the table" just sounds too much like Obama, I guess?

    You know, your thread title doesn't accurately reflect what the OP says?
    "Neighbor, how long has it been since you’ve had a big, thick, steaming bowl of Wolf Brand Chili?”

    Sorry about that. How do I edit the thread title? Would "Trump says no exit strategy necessary in case of war with Iran" be appropriate?

    That would be more accurate, yes. If the time limit has expired for you to change it, I'll be happy to change it at your request.

    OR, we could leave it "as is", and it will blend in with so many other threads whose title does not actually portray the OP.

    Your call. I somehow suspect this thread won't get many replies so will probably disappear soon.

    You're good! Let's leave it be.

    Trump never has a plan. Not from one sentence to the next. Not from one day to the next. Why would anyone think this would be different?

    It would be disappointing if Trump led the US into war with Iran. The fact that he had consistently tried to get the US out of international conflict is one of the highlights of his political career. I'd hate to see that snuffed out.

    Someone saying that they don't need an exit strategy is not the equivalent of someone saying that they don't have an exit strategy. Saying that you don't need one could simply be a way to get an idiot reporter to stop trying to get you to foolishly reveal your strategy. And providing exit strategies and time tables was something that IIRC Obama actually did.

    I think this is an example of what I was talking about before -- that, previously, Republicans allowed the media to set the narrative, even posing a goofy premise that the Republican would then go on and try to debate -- on the defensive.

    It's like Trump takes a swat at the reporter and says, "no, I'll set the narrative", and uses that time to get his own message across.
