Report: European Diplomats See Trump As A ‘Laughing Stock’ Who Is ‘Obsessed With Obama’
Donald Trump is seen as the “laughing stock” of the world according to a new report from BuzzFeed published on Wednesday.
A few top-ranking European officials spoke with anonymity with BuzzFedd, expressing their concerns about Trump being president of the free world. Most officials described Trump as “something of a laughing stock” at international gatherings.
According to one official, Trump has a very limited vocabulary and they enjoy playing a type of “word bingo” whenever he speaks.
“Everything is ‘great’; ‘very, very great’, ‘amazing’,” one diplomat told BuzzFeed.
According to a Pew Research Center poll released back in June, 79% of European citizens have “no confidence” in the new US president.
But European diplomats not only see Trump as a laughing stock, but they said that he has “an obsession” with undoing anything former President Barrack Obama did.
“It’s his only real position,” one official said. “He will ask: ‘Did Obama approve this?’ And if the answer is affirmative, he will say: ‘We don’t.'”
“He won’t even want to listen to the arguments or have a debate. He is obsessed with Obama,” he added.
