Six European officials who had interactions with Trump and his White House describe the president as a threat to global security who is obsessed with Obama.
Buzzfeed News reported:
But behind the mocking, there is growing fear among international governments that Trump is a serious threat to international peace and stability.
They also believe Trump’s foreign policy is chiefly driven by an obsession with unravelling Barack Obama’s policies. “It’s his only real position,” one European diplomat said. “He will ask: ‘Did Obama approve this?’ And if the answer is affirmative, he will say: ‘We don’t.’ He won’t even want to listen to the arguments or have a debate. He is obsessed with Obama.”
The officials also described meetings between Trump and other world leaders as useless because Trump doesn’t know anything, and all he does is bombard the world leader with questions about their GDP.
Trump wants to be Obama. He is trying to erase Barack Obama’s legacy because he needs to be the popular president. Trump is probably still fuming over the jokes that Obama told about him during the White House Correspondents Dinner years ago. Donald Trump is obsessed with Obama, and it is driving him crazy that he is failing where Obama was successful.
Donald Trump is not well, and he is obsessed because Obama was the kind of president that he will never be.
