europe, whether it's our relationship with china and the one china policy or two-state solution in the middle east? you know, george w. bush came into office with a very clear doctrine of foreign affairs that changed dramatically after september 11th. president obama's view of the world in shades of gray evolved over time, but it was very clear that he had spent a lot of time thinking about it. has president trump thought about this? has he -- has this -- does he have sort of a coherent -- >> he is more of a transactional person. >> he talks -- >> which is going to be fascinating to look back on after four years of transactional foreign policy, that we essentially not had. >> he speaks about relationships in terms of deals, right? nato will make a deal with russia. he doesn't seem to -- he always thinks about them as transactional in one-on-one, but in foreign policy you make a deal with russia, it matters to all of europe in terms of is russia emboldened by this deal? is the west weakened by this deal? it isn't transferrable. this idea of just one-on-one deals in terms of foreign poli
