Trump called Theresa May ‘weak’ and Merkel ‘stupid’, says TV

The President of the United States, Donald Trump, intimidated former UK Prime Minister Theresa May by calling her “weak and lacking in courage” and said German Chancellor Angela Merkel was “stupid” in calls to heads of state.

The information is from CNN based on findings and conversations with White House sources and intelligence services officials for four months.

According to reporter Carl Bernstein, May and Merkel were the two leaders in whom Trump more he spoke disrespectful words. The sources described the calls to May as “humiliating and intimidating”, with the president claiming she was “a coward” in the Brexit negotiations.

“He was agitated about something with Theresa May, then he was unpleasant with her over the phone. He clearly intimidated her and intended it,” said one of the sources.

About Angela Merkel, Germany’s prime minister, another source claims that “some of the things he said to Merkel are unbelievable: he called her ‘stupid’ and accused her of being in the Russians’ pocket.”

The prime minister behaved calmly and patiently in the face of the attacks, rebutting the allegations of Trump with “de facto recitations”.

Downing Street, the UK Prime Minister’s official residence, did not respond to questions in the report and only showed the location on its website where conversations between world leaders are recorded.

The White House spoke through Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Matthews, saying, “President Trump is a world-class negotiator who has always promoted US interests on the world stage. The president has shown his ability to promote America’s strategic interests. “

Other discussions

Trump he also despised other leaders, especially Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau and Australia, Scott Morrison.

He argued in the same “aggressive” manner, according to reports, with governors about the pandemic of coronavirus.

Emmanuel Macron, despite the tones of the conversations, was one of the bosses who most called Trump. The French president was trying to change the American’s position on climate issues, environmental policies and the withdrawal of the United States from the nuclear agreement with Iran.

Conversations with Macron had no effect, while Trump he lashed out with “lashes” that France did not meet NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) spending targets and the country’s immigration policy.

Direct line with Erdogan and Putin

The President of Turkey, Recep Erdogan, and Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, were the two leaders with a direct channel to speak with the President of the USA.

It would be a request from Donald himself Trump direct calls from Turkey to him. Erdogan called at least twice a week.

The tenor was about how he, Trump, was more beneficial in the administration of the country than compared to George Bush and Barack Obama, in addition to addressing the conflict in Syria.

Erdogan demanded from Trump requests to grant preferential trade status to Turkey. In contrast, Trump was angry that Erdogan did not release an imprisoned American evangelical pastor, Andrew Brunson, who was accused of involvement in the 2016 Turkish coup attempt.

With Putin, the sources said that the American maintained an attitude of “extremely solicitous and of admiration”, seeking an approval of the Russian president.
