(Studio: Anderson Cooper) A "Keeping Them Honest" look at the White House cabinet cleaning up after what President Trump said & what it means about the weight of his words introduced. [Last Thursday, TRUMP - says we will be out of Syria real soon.] [Yesterday, special presidential envoy to the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS Bret McGURK†- speaks about the mission in Syria.] [Tuesday, TRUMP - says we will bring the troops home & we get nothing out of trillions spent in the Middle East.] The White House walkback today noted. [White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee SANDERS - talks about transitioning about ISIS.] The trade war with China introduced; Trump tweet quoted. [Today, economic adviser Larry KUDLOW - says I am not sure what the president means.] [This afternoon, SANDERS - says China will make trade changes.] The issue of the border introduced. [Yesterday, TRUMP - says we will guard the border with our military.] The limits of military use inside the US noted.

(Studio: Anderson Cooper) Live discussion held with CNN's Bakari Sellers, former Trump campaign adviser Steve Cortes & Gloria Borger about Trump. [CORTES, SELLERS, BORGER - offer views on Trump's approaching this in an entrepreneurial fashion, how Trump's policy is based on the last person he talked to & people will suffer from a flippant policy, how it is "ad hocism" as in the Syria withdrawal issue where all staff told him why he can't get out, how he is a "disrupter" with a "team of rivals," how the {trade} uncertainty is scaring farmers.]

Cooper, Anderson
