"I do believe Cuba is responsible," Trump says of the mystery attacks that injured American and Canadian diplomats.
Trump won't directly comment on Roy Moore's desire to make homosexuality illegal. Says the people of Alabama like him.
I constantly feel like questions to Trump could be phrased so much less gently, made so much harder to dismiss and evade.
Former Obama deputy chief of staff:
Trump is called on his lie about Obama not calling families of soldiers. "I don't know if he did," Trump says. "...probably did sometimes."
Trump is almost never called on his lies in real time. He just was, and he took the lie back. It's not pointless to do the challenging.

Here is Trump's full answer on his calling and not calling of the families of dead soldiers. It is worth reading.
