David Petraeus reviews President Trumpa s start in New Albany speech

David Petraeus expressed some reservations about President Donald Trump on Wednesday, but the former Army general and CIA director praised the new president's “firmness.” Speaking as part of the New Albany Community Foundation's Jefferson Series, Petraeus acknowledged that Trump, who interviewed him for the post of secretary of state, has been slow to fill positions in his administration. That's partly because Trump wasn't prepared to be elected in November, Petraeus said.
