Trump was asked repeated questions by reporters about North Korea, but all the mentally unstable sounding president could reply with was, “I think you know the answer to that.”
Trump blamed every single previous president apparently going back to Truman for the problems in North Korea. Trump was asked if he was being sarcastic about Russia helping him reduce payroll by expelling diplomats. He answered, “I think you know the answer to that.” He then added, “But we have reduced payroll.”
Trump said we could have a good solution or a bad solution in North Korea. When he was asked what would be a bad solution, he said, “I think you know the answer to that.”
Trump was asked if he was talking about war with North Korea. He answered, “I think you know the answer to that.”
Translation: Trump painted himself into a corner with his deranged tweet threats, and now he is trying to bluff his way out of it. Trump sounded like a mentally ill lunatic who doesn’t know anything. Donald Trump isn’t projecting strength when he bluff. He sounds like a crazed buffoon who believes that if he keeps repeating the same answer people will mistake his craziness for toughness.
Donald Trump’s tricks aren’t working. He a small mentally fragile man, who is being swallowed up by the world’s biggest stage. Trump’s performance would be worthy of laughter if he weren’t in the middle of pushing the world towards war.
