Donald Trump is very thin-skinned with a huge – but fragile – ego. Therefore, it comes as no surprise that his first foreign trip will be quite different from those of previous presidents. This includes how he will be treated by his fellow world leaders. First, the news broke that the officials for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) are frantically trying to “Trump-proof” the meeting of the world’s most important military alliance. Now, it seems that world leaders have received addition instructions on how to handle Trump, and will be deliberately stroking his ego.
We all know that Trump’s favorite subject is his Electoral College victory. He even handed out copies of his electoral map to Reuters reporters during his 100 days interview. Since he is already dreading this foreign trip, the other world leaders who know that Trump is way out of his league and in over his head will be doing the one thing that can make the big baby feel better, which is by stroking his ego by complimenting him on his big political upset. Former British Ambassador to the United States Peter Westmacott told the New York Times of the strategy:
“If you were prepping people for Donald Trump, the two or three points would be one, bear in mind this is still a guy who focuses on wins.”
“Secondly, he is a deal maker, a pragmatist. Third, this is a guy with a limited attention span. He absolutely won’t listen to visitors droning on for a half-hour — or longer if they need an interpreter.”
How embarrassing for the United States that our president is literally being treated like a child by world leaders instead of like the leader of the free world. That’s because he is one. We made the biggest mistake in this great nation’s history by electing a literal baby in a 70-year-old man’s body to lead us.
Mark my words – no matter how hard other world leaders prepare for Trump’s descending upon them, he will do something to humiliate the nation on the world stage. He always does.
