A White House spokesperson put it the best, I think:

The White House spokesperson Andrew Bates, when asked about Trump’s comments, said: “Encouraging invasions of our closest allies by murderous regimes is appalling and unhinged – and it endangers American national security, global stability and our economy at home.”

What’s so insane about all this is that Trump saying something like that out loud means it’s now practically gospel to the vast majority of GOP voters, and might as well be official party policy.

    If this is what makes you conclude the F-35 being a better system, you clearly have idea of what you’re talking about. (NOT.)

    Arms deals of that magnitude are based more on what politicians see as a chance of getting reelected than what the engineers conclude.

    Furthermore, just looking at the specifications and conclude that A is better than B is something people without insight would do.

    I recommend this Swedish blog post on the subject that was written 10 years ago: Gripen E vs JSF
