Donald Trump

“The worst cannot be ruled out”

Written by SK Ashby

What do foreign diplomats really think about Trump?

There's what they say in public -- which is what they're instructed to say by their governments -- and there's what they really think.

Fortunately, someone leaked a series of internal memos written by Britain's ambassador to the United States and it has given us a glimpse of what diplomats really think.

The memos were critical of Trump's economic policies, claiming they could wreck the world trade system, described conflicts within the White House as "knife fights" and warned "the worst cannot be ruled out" in regard to allegations of Trump's collusion with Russia.

"We don't really believe this administration is going to become substantially more normal; less dysfunctional; less unpredictable; less faction riven; less diplomatically clumsy and inept," Darroch wrote in one of a series of leaked documents covering the period from 2017 to the present.

There's no doubt in my mind that any foreign diplomat who has ever had the misfortune of dealing with the Trump regime shares similar thoughts.
