Trump reportedly left staffers 'genuinely horrified' in his phone calls with Putin, Saudi Arabia

    A bombshell whistleblower report that was revealed in September sparked the latest concerns over President Donald Trump's contact with foreign leaders.

    However, a new report from The Washington Post says senior administration staffers have reportedly been horrified and unsurprised by Trump's behavior in calls and public appearances for his entire term.

    One such occasion was a call in January 2017, in which Russian President Vladimir Putin was slated to congratulate Trump on his victory, but aides told the Post it quickly turned into Trump "fawning" over Putin, and even apologizing for not calling him sooner.

    However, one official said every one of Trump's interactions with other leaders had a time limit before it would eventually devolve into an inappropriate interaction.
   
A bombshell whistleblower report that was revealed in September sparked the latest concerns over President Donald Trump's contact with foreign leaders, but senior administration staffers have reportedly been horrified and unsurprised by Trump's behavior in calls and public appearances.

The whistleblower complaint centered on a July 25 phone conversation alleged Trump had acted inappropriately in pushing Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Former Vice President Joe Biden, who is also a 2020 hopeful, and his son.

They should have heard his calls with the Magenta Neptunians!

More seriously, the Dems will try to use this to force Trump to release the transcripts of every phone call Trump has made to every foreign leader.

#nevertrumpers hopefully waiting every episode, praying it will be the big one.

Q#1: How do you tell the difference between a democrat article, a media offering, and a #nevertrump story?

A#2: There is no difference.

All okay with Hiillary, Romney so long as it isn't positive for Trump.

Trump's behavior is the norm for someone correctly labeled incorrigible at 10 years
of age; behavior that was never corrected nor improved over the ensuing 60 years.
It will only worsen as he ages and declines further, likely rapidly.

 :silly: Trump's "behavior" is that of a businessman who knows the Dems started their FUD campaign a year too early and that many Americans will tire of it and see through it.

Your psychobabble assessment of Trump might be more meaningful than mine that The Bern is a Chartreuse Neptunian rather than a Magenta Venusian.

After >4 years of Trump doing it, Progs seem incapable of realizing that Trump has been trolling them all those years, and that they've chomped on his bait reliably. Maybe the problem is that the last R President Libs and Progs did not deride as a bumbling idiot was Richard Nixon. That 45 years of underestimation has resulted in 12 years of Reagan-Bush, 8 years of "W", 4 years of Trump, and is currently making another 4 years of Trump pretty likely.

Well, it's an opinion forum so..........
Anyway, Trump's words clearly define him.
He's labeled himself a "stable genius", "having great and unmatched wisdom"
and identified his astonishing assets as "mental stability and being very smart".
Certainly, he's shows comedic talent including; absurd claims, grins, frowns and
smirks, his fat-boy appearance as well as his tantrums on cue.
Prolly would have been a star in Hollywood w/all those babes. Sigh..........
Unfortunately he's POTUS not Oliver Hardy!!!

And yet.... despite the despicable left rats' best efforts.... the economy is booming and still humming along....

much to your chagrin, no doubt.

Given all those self proclaimed 'severe conservatives' failed in remaking the 9th District court into something noticeably less wacko (for example) if I'da only known I woulda voted for a cinder block a long time ago.

Let me be clear as a bell on what you surmise:
* I am a principled conservative in the mold of Burke and Pitt.
* I embrace the precepts of Natural Law as the foundation of
the moral order that governs Man.
* I wish any and all, economic well being.
For me, Trump has clearly self-identified as someone whose
first, last and only priority, is himself.
As such, my sense is that little enduring good will come from
his tenure.
So, we shall see.
