I defy anyone to read this and not conclude that Donald Trump is nothing but a deranged idiot who doesn’t know what he’s talking about. In a speech yesterday, Trump said the European Union was ‘formed in order to take advantage of the United States’
“The European Union was formed in order to take advantage of the United States,” he said. “Formed to take advantage of the United States. I know that. They know I know that, but other presidents had no idea.”
I think there are two quite obvious conclusions to be drawn from this: first, trump is trying to present himself as some kind of wartime president, valiantly defending America from numerous enemies. Hence trading partners aren’t just seen as competitors but overt foes. It’s absolutely crazy, and sends international discourse in a very dangerous direction.
Second, it’s clear farage has trump’s ear and has been plying him with bullshit. Why else would he think that he knows things which previous presidents did not, when in fact Trump is probably the most stupid moron ever to enter Washington. How can America put up with such embarrassment?
