Trump 'Delusional' In Foreign Leader Calls

President Donald Trump was so consistently unprepared for discussion of serious issues, so often outplayed in his conversations with powerful leaders like Russian President Vladimir Putin and Turkish President Recep Erdogan, and so abusive to leaders of America's principal allies, that the calls helped convince some senior USA officials _ including his former secretaries of state and defense, two national security advisers and his longest-serving chief of staff - that the President himself posed a danger to the national security of the United States, according to White House and intelligence officials intimately familiar with the contents of the conversations. "But if anarchy prevails, this dream comes crumbling down", McEnany said.

On Sunday morning, President Donald Trump retweeted a video that was reportedly taken at The Villages, a large retirement community in central Florida.

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany blasted The New York Times Monday over what she claimed was "false" reporting about whether President Trump was briefed about intelligence that Russian Federation paid Taliban-linked militants bounties to kill USA troops in Afghanistan. But make no mistake: "it's a battle we will win". Lindsay Graham, R-S.C., at Trump National Golf club in Sterling, Virginia.

In an interview with Fox News earlier Monday, McEnany also did not take the opportunity to condemn use of the phrase or the sentiment behind it.

"The calls caused former top Trump deputies - including national security advisers H.R. McMaster and John Bolton, Defence Secretary James Mattis, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and White House chief of staff John Kelly, as well as intelligence officials - to conclude that the President was often 'delusional, ' as two sources put it, in his dealings with foreign leaders", Bernstein wrote.

A source told the outlet that Trump subjected French President Emmanuel Macron to lectures and verbal "whippings" on issues like trade, immigration, and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

"He stands for them and his point in tweeting out that video was to stand with his supporters who are oftentimes demonized", she added. "So, he took it down but he does stand with the men and women of The Villages". "What he did see was tremendous enthusiasm from his many supporters", Deere said, according to CNN and The Associated Press.

For example, in April he came under fire for retweeting a post that had the hashtag #FireFauci. The video also shows anti-Trump protesters shouting "Nazi", "racist", and profanities at the Trump backers.

It's not the first time the president has failed to condemn white supremacy.

Overall, these sources painted a scathing portrait of a U.S. president who bullies and belittles allies while fawning over autocratic leaders.

One person familiar with Trump's conversations with leaders from Russia, Turkey, Canada, Australia, and western Europe described the calls to CNN as "abominations".
