Dem Senator Slams Trump In Brilliant Interview, Calls Him An Embarrassment To The Country

Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) said during an interview with Politico on Wednesday that Donald Trump’s trip to the G7 summit last week was an embarrassment to the United States.

Warner said in the interview on the Politico Money podcast released Wednesday that Trump’s performance at the G7 event caused a growing tension between the U.S. and its closest allies.

“I was embarrassed,” Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said. “I was embarrassed that an American president acted that way, particularly when Canada and other nations were responding to the actions that Mr. Trump had taken.”

Trump decided to spend his time at the G7 summit attacking French President Emmanuel Macron and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau after they had condemned Trump’s decision to steep tariffs on imported steel and aluminum from the European Union, Canada and Mexico.

Trump continued to add wood to the fire after he called on Russia to be readmitted to the G7.

If that wasn’t bad enough, Trump went on to say that our allies are stealing from us while he demanded that foreign leaders drastically reduce trade barriers or risk losing access to U.S. markets altogether.

“We’re the piggy bank that everybody is robbing,” he said.

Warner went on to slam Trump for damaging the relationship between the U.S. and its allies.

“I was frankly embarrassed – embarrassed for our country,” Warner told Politico Money. “This is not the way America leads and the way America has led the world through Democratic and Republican administrations since the Second World War.”
