After months of refusing to disclose the individuals who've been counseling him on foreign affairs, Donald Trump said Wednesday he will release names next week.
During a town hall Wednesday night on MSNBC, the Republican presidential hopeful was asked by hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski to name three individuals he would "consult with or want to hear from on foreign policy."
"I would say that I'd rather not [name them] because I'm going to be announcing a team in about a week that is really a good team," he said.
"[It's] a team that is recommended highly by me and to me ... and a team that I've both seen and read about both in papers and seen on your show and other people," the billionaire noted. "But we're announcing a team in about a week. So we're going to keep it a secret for now."
Trump has long been criticized for his repeated foreign policy gaffes and for declining to name the people he discusses his plans with. In particular, fellow GOP hopeful and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush has been a leading critic of Trump's foreign policy. During the eighth Republican debate last Saturday, Bush repeatedly accused the New York businessman of getting his foreign policy views "from the shows."
"Donald Trump gets his foreign policy advice ... from the shows. He wakes up in his pajamas and watches the TV shows on Saturday and Sunday," Bush said in December.
