Donald Trump publicly berated his former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn because of a missed call from Vladimir Putin, according to former senior figure in the British government.
Nick Timothy, a senior adviser to former British Prime Minister Theresa May, claimed in an interview that the President had a meltdown in front of May and others because of a missed call with the Russian president.
“Like really shouted. This was at a formal dinner with butlers and fancy crockery – and he was properly shouting at him down the table.”
Trump reportedly shouted: “If Putin wants a call with me you just put him through.”
“The whole thing was very a strange experience,” Timothy went on.
“And not especially reassuring about the state of [Trump’s] mind, or the stability of decision-making in the White House.”
