Who makes Trump look weak? Trump himself
Donald Trump would like people to think that his thoughts, decisions and regular self-contradictions are part of a Great Master Plan in which every move is integrated into the whole scheme, like a real-life chess game. Maybe some buy that. This summary says not so:
After leaving the Quebec G7 meeting, Trump became so angry at Justin Trudeau’s closing remarks that he instantly tweeted that he had instructed his people to not sign the final communiqué, and that Trudeau’s remarks were “… deceitful and weak.”
On CNN Sunday morning, Trump’s angerfest at Trudeau was faithfully but disingenuously replicated by economic adviser Larry Kudlow. Under sharp questioning by the CNN host, Kudlow acknowledged that he and Trump were primarily angry because they believed Trudeau’s remarks would convey to the North Koreans the perception that Trump is weak.
Here’s a flash for both of you, Trump and Kudlow: It is not other people who make Trump look weak. Rather, it is your words and actions that make him look weak … and stupid … and a bully.
