Trump's phone calls alarm US officials

Recommended Posts

Trump's phone calls alarm US officials, from pandering to Putin to abusing allies and ignoring his own advisers - Full Story

 

n hundreds of highly classified phone calls with foreign heads of state, President Donald Trump was so consistently unprepared for discussion of serious issues, so often outplayed in his conversations with powerful leaders like Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Erdogan, and so abusive to leaders of America's principal allies, that the calls helped convince some senior US officials -- including his former secretaries of state and defense, two national security advisers and his longest-serving chief of staff -- that the President himself posed a danger to the national security of the United States, according to White House and intelligence officials intimately familiar with the contents of the conversations.

The calls caused former top Trump deputies -- including national security advisers H.R. McMaster and John Bolton, Defense Secretary James Mattis, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and White House chief of staff John Kelly, as well as intelligence officials -- to conclude that the President was often "delusional," as two sources put it, in his dealings with foreign leaders. The sources said there was little evidence that the President became more skillful or competent in his telephone conversations with most heads of state over time. Rather, he continued to believe that he could either charm, jawbone or bully almost any foreign leader into capitulating to his will, and often pursued goals more attuned to his own agenda than what many of his senior advisers considered the national interest.

These officials' concerns about the calls, and particularly Trump's deference to Putin, take on new resonance with reports the President may have learned in March that Russia had offered the Taliban bounties to kill US troops in Afghanistan -- and yet took no action. CNN's sources said there were calls between Putin and Trump about Trump's desire to end the American military presence in Afghanistan but they mentioned no discussion of the supposed Taliban bounties.

 

By far the greatest number of Trump's telephone discussions with an individual head of state were with Erdogan, who sometimes phoned the White House at least twice a week and was put through directly to the President on standing orders from Trump, according to the sources. Meanwhile, the President regularly bullied and demeaned the leaders of America's principal allies, especially two women: telling Prime Minister Theresa May of the United Kingdom she was weak and lacked courage; and telling German Chancellor Angela Merkel that she was "stupid."

Trump incessantly boasted to his fellow heads of state, including Saudi Arabia's autocratic royal heir Mohammed bin Salman and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, about his own wealth, genius, "great" accomplishments as President, and the "idiocy" of his Oval Office predecessors, according to the sources.

In his conversations with both Putin and Erdogan, Trump took special delight in trashing former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama and suggested that dealing directly with him -- Trump -- would be far more fruitful than during previous administrations. "They didn't know BS," he said of Bush and Obama -- one of several derisive tropes the sources said he favored when discussing his predecessors with the Turkish and Russian leaders.

Keep supporting somebody that is allowing American soldiers to be killed for bounty. That’s how fucked up you are! You are in favor of Russia paying the Taliban to kill American soldiers.

Sure Hip, that's it!  Please hand over all the proof you have that this is true, please.  You personally substantiated it, right?  LOL.  Ah, you want so bad for it to be true.  Therefore, it is!

Why not impeach him?!?!

Oh wait...

Because the traiterous Senate which is majority Trump lovers won’t allow that to happen. Not the answer you were thinking of, but then one of us is realistic and the other one is a Trump lover. Another Trump lover that is just fine with American soldiers being killed for money.

Hopefully there are plans in the works to impeach Brain-Dead Biden in the event he wins in November.  Never too early to get started just in case!  What goes around comes around.

Well his new best friend John Bolton said he didn't hear about it either. Listen to his words in between Trump bashes.

He also says the Russians, Chinese, Iranians, and North Koreans will try to interfere in the election in 2020 as well. I wonder who they will want to win? I'm thinking the:

Idiot

It's becoming more and more obvious that Biden is not up to this task.  He's completely reliant on teleprompters, notes and that earpiece and it's painful to watch.  Truly frightening that he could become President.  Who's puppet would he be?  Somebody's for sure.

He's not all there.  Not close.

China and Iran just like all Democrats going back to Billy Boy Clinton!

If he turns out to be a criminal like Donald Trump is, then by all means, impeach him

Maybe you didn't know, but MAGA fans generally believe that, because they adore and worship and feel compelled to defend their Donald, anyone who dislikes Donald must be just as touchy and defensive and weird about Biden or whoever as they are about Donald. I too would hope they would impeach Biden ASAP if he committed acts of treason or fraud like Donald has.

 

MAGA fan = a sell-out who is prepared to overlook any and all criminal acts by Donald.
