Criticizes WSJ, Rove

Makes Statement

The WSJ criticizes his trade comments at the debate:

Start with trade, which showcased Donald Trump. “I love trade. I’m a free trader, 100%,” said the businessman, after declaring that he opposed the only free-trade deal currently on offer, the U.S. agreement with 11 other Pacific nations. Mr. Trump called it a “terrible deal,” though it wasn’t obvious that he has any idea what’s in it. His one specific criticism was its failure to deal with Chinese currency manipulation. But it took Rand Paul to point out that China isn’t part of the deal and would be happy if the agreement collapsed so the U.S. would have less economic influence in Asia.

Trump responds:

Poll: 61% support military action

An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows that 61% of Americans say that taking military action against ISIS is in the interests of the U.S., while only 13% disagree, and 24% say they don’t know. It finds that 94% of Americans are aware of the beheadings of Sotloff and Foley, higher than any other news event the NBC/WSJ poll has measured in the last five years. Republican pollster Bill McInturff, who conducted the survey with Democratic pollster Peter Hart of Hart Research:

A very war-weary country … seems to have woken up to the real threat that ISIS may present. The beheadings are so chilling to the American public. The only things I think of equal impact are the self-immolations back in Vietnam.
