The Associated Press had an interesting report last week just how little work Donald Trump and his team have done when it comes to "the nitty gritty of outlining what he would do as president."
From the start, Trump has never been the kind of candidate to pore over thick policy books. Indeed, he has mocked Clinton on the subject.
"She's got people that sit in cubicles writing policy all day. Nothing's ever going to happen. It's just a waste of paper," he told Time Magazine in June. "My voters don't care and the public doesn't care. They know you're going to do a good job once you're there."
To date, Trump's campaign has posted just seven policy proposals on his website. There are 38 on Clinton's site, ranging from efforts to cure Alzheimer's disease to Wall Street and criminal justice reform.
It led CNN's Brian Stelter to flag an interesting detail over the weekend that I hadn't seen elsewhere: "Trump's site has 9,000 words of policy proposals. Clinton's site: 112,735 words."
Clinton herself is certainly aware of the discrepancy, recently telling voters, "I've laid out the best I could, the specific plans and ideas that I want to pursue as your president because I have this old-fashioned idea. When you run for president, you ought to tell people what you want to do as their president."
According to her Republican rival, this is an antiquated model to be avoided.
MSNBC's Chris Hayes had a series of tweets on this earlier today, and it's worth checking them out. Chris noted, for example, that Politico ran a fairly routine profile on Clinton's tech policy advisers, which stood out largely because there is no comparable group on Team Trump, which has made a deliberate decision not to build any intellectual infrastructure.
"[U]ltimately a Trump Presidency is a complete and total black box," Chris concluded. "No one, probably not even Trump, knows what the hell it looks like."
