Donald Trump enjoyed going to countries where the leaders figured out that he delighted in getting the full “red carpet” treatment. Look how China and Saudi Arabia gave him the over-the-top treatment he believed he deserved. Even France’s President Emmanuel Macron threw him a military parade. However, now the French president is on Trump’s grudge-is-forever list.
Trump did not want to go to the G7 Summit with the U.S.’s allies. He came in late and left early, but he still could not evade their critical eyes.
The man sitting in the Oval Office does not want to be treated as an equal. Worse, he absolutely does not wanted to be scolded for his poor behavior.
No, 45 would much prefer to hang out with dictators like bad boys Russia’s Vladimir Putin, the Philippines’ Rodrigo Duterte, and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un. Macron, on the other hand, called Trump on his childish behavior and made himself an enemy.
The problem was that our commander-in-chief can dish it out in family sized servings, but he cannot take it. Unfortunately, Trump has skin so thin that a person could see the blood flowing through his veins.
After POTUS left the summit, host Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau gave a press conference saying Canada would not be pushed around. Then, Trump took back his support for a joint statement and called Trudeau “dishonest & weak:”
‘PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meek and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, “US Tariffs were kind of insulting” and he “will not be pushed around.” Very dishonest & weak. Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!’
Macron called Trump’s bullying behavior what it was:
‘French President Emmanuel Macron’s office: “International cooperation cannot depend on fits of anger or little words. Let us be serious and worthy of our people.”‘
Trump has not shown the behavior of a leader of the free world. If only he would take his friends’ advice.
