Trump is going to embark on his first trip overseas so he must have adequately prepared for it, right?
National Security Council staffers tasked with preparing Trump for his trip have struggled to educate him and they've reportedly resorted to indulging his narcissistic impulses.
He likes single-page memos and visual aids like maps, charts, graphs and photos.
National Security Council officials have strategically included Trump's name in "as many paragraphs as we can because he keeps reading if he's mentioned," according to one source, who relayed conversations he had with NSC officials.
Trump likes to look at a map of the country involved when he learns about a topic.
This will almost certainly be a disaster.
President Obama had full command of the issues because he actually cared enough about the rest of the world to learn about it. Trump is just embarking on a corporate branding tour with the bare minimum of preparation.
