Donald Trump picks a fight. Then, when the other person fights back, he runs to his mother’s skirts crying that he or she is being mean to him. Victimhood looks so unattractive on an American president. No wonder the Brits built an inflatable baby Donald balloon to welcome POTUS wherever he goes around the world. Before his plane landed in London, the president picked a fight with this person.
Trump called London Mayor Sadiq Khan a “stone cold loser” who has “done a terrible job:”
@SADIQKHAN, WHO BY ALL ACCOUNTS HAS DONE A TERRIBLE JOB AS MAYOR OF LONDON, HAS BEEN FOOLISHLY “NASTY” TO THE VISITING PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, BY FAR THE MOST IMPORTANT ALLY OF THE UNITED KINGDOM. HE IS A STONE COLD LOSER WHO SHOULD FOCUS ON CRIME IN LONDON, NOT ME……’
Insult the host appears to be one of Trump’s favorite games. The president compared him to “very dumb and incompetent” New York Mayor Bill De Blasio:
‘….KAHN REMINDS ME VERY MUCH OF OUR VERY DUMB AND INCOMPETENT MAYOR OF NYC, DE BLASIO, WHO HAS ALSO DONE A TERRIBLE JOB – ONLY HALF HIS HEIGHT. IN ANY EVENT, I LOOK FORWARD TO BEING A GREAT FRIEND TO THE UNITED KINGDOM, AND AM LOOKING VERY MUCH FORWARD TO MY VISIT. LANDING NOW!’
POTUS rolls around in the pomp and circumstance that the world leaders ply him with to manipulate him. Is it possible Trump thinks that they saw him as king of the world?
Moving on to China, Trump appeared to believe that he has forced a hidden tax on our largest trading partner. He was wrong. Americans pay it:
‘CHINA IS SUBSIDIZING ITS PRODUCT IN ORDER THAT IT CAN CONTINUE TO BE SOLD IN THE USA. MANY FIRMS ARE LEAVING CHINA FOR OTHER COUNTRIES, INCLUDING THE UNITED STATES, IN ORDER TO AVOID PAYING THE TARIFFS. NO VISIBLE INCREASE IN COSTS OR INFLATION, BUT U.S. IS TAKING BILLIONS!’
Apparently, Trump’s people have scheduled a series of foreign trips for him. As he landed in London, the president casts about trying to punish the press:
‘JUST ARRIVED IN THE UNITED KINGDOM. THE ONLY PROBLEM IS THAT
@CNN IS THE PRIMARY SOURCE OF NEWS AVAILABLE FROM THE U.S. AFTER WATCHING IT FOR A SHORT WHILE, I TURNED IT OFF. ALL NEGATIVE & SO MUCH FAKE NEWS, VERY BAD FOR U.S. BIG RATINGS DROP. WHY DOESN’T OWNER @ATT DO SOMETHING?’
Trump hates CNN. It appears he was encouraging his millions of voters to drop ATT, which owns CNN. His frightening tweet read:
‘I BELIEVE THAT IF PEOPLE STOPED (SIC) USING OR SUBSCRIBING TO
@ATT, THEY WOULD BE FORCED TO MAKE BIG CHANGES AT @CNN, WHICH IS DYING IN THE RATINGS ANYWAY. IT IS SO UNFAIR WITH SUCH BAD, FAKE NEWS! WHY WOULDN’T THEY ACT. WHEN THE WORLD WATCHES @CNN, IT GETS A FALSE PICTURE OF USA. SAD!’
Twitter world had a blast with this one. Check out some of our favorites below:
