The Guardian -- Australian journalist demolishes Trump at G20: 'biggest threat to the West' (VIDEO)

By Naaman Zhou
Trump’s displayed ignorance of foreign relationships in regard to maintaining a solid foreign policy by calling for US allies to assume more responsibility for their own security, and his “goon display of ignorance of other languages, cultures or even basic manners” are unfitting of any leader of any country, least of all the President of the United States of America.

Behavior that is unfitting was exemplified by Trump’s outrageous behavior at the G7 summit when he pushed the prime minister of Montenegro out of his way in order to stand in front of other country’s leaders, adjusting his jacket and putting his chin in the air, an arrogant snub that can only be interpreted as look, I am better than you.

Germany’s Angela Merkel called discussions with Trump, very difficult, not to say unsatisfactory.”

Europe is faced with a western alliance divided by Brexit and Donald Trump's presidency. While Germany and Europe would strive to remain on good terms with America and Britain, "we have to fight for our own destiny", Merkel said.

Now, “A savage opinion of Donald Trump’s presidency that went viral was delivered by one of Australia’s most seasoned political journalists, who is well known to viewers of the national broadcaster for his frank opinions.

Chris Uhlmann, the political editor of the government-funded Australian Broadcasting Corporation, described Trump as “isolated and friendless” at the G20 leaders’ summit, and said his disastrous foreign policy had “pressed fast-forward on the decline of the United States”.

The analysis, delivered on the ABC’s political program Insiders, has been viewed thousands of times around the world, and astonished American political commentators.

We and the world are all threatened by the presidency of Donald Trump. Our global leadership in all things are in decline.
