CNN's John King: Obama Claimed 'He Could Unite The World,' But Can't Get It Done Versus Russia

On the 24 March 2014 edition of New Day, CNN's John King spotlighted one of President Obama's key campaign promises from 2008 about foreign policy during a discussion about how to respond to Russia's aggression in Crimea. King wondered if "a President who came to office saying he could unite the world and would have better international diplomacy than George W. Bush – at least on this one, doesn't have any good options."

Moments earlier, Margaret Talev of Bloomberg News noted how "the White House doesn't really want to give a whole lot of military assistance here, and they think don't that...most of Europe is going to go along with significant sanctions."
