Trump's 2nd-term agenda answer to Sean Hannity wasn't great. Eric Bolling optimistically offered him a 'retake.'

Fox News host Sean Hannity asked President Trump last week what his goals would be in a second term, and Trump's answer wasn't ... terribly specific.

Among those who noticed the conspicuous lack of a second-term agenda was Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), but he didn't blame Trump. "I would blame Fox more than I blame the president, because the president, it's easy for him to digress here and there, but Hannity — you assume Fox wants him to get re-elected," Grassley said. Hannity "says what's your plans for the next four years? So the president starts to answer it. And then digresses a little bit. Hannity should have got him back on the subject. So it's pretty simple: I just want the president to be re-elected." You can listen to Hannity's question and Trump's digression again, as performed by Sarah Cooper.

Former Fox News host Eric Bolling, now at Sinclair, offered Trump a do-over on Wednesday, since "the left was upset with" his answer to Hannity. Even with a week to come up with more a TV-friendly goal or two, Trump's answer was similarly digressive.

Here's what that looks like in print.
