Trump's 'sadistic' phone calls to female world leaders revealed, CNN reports

A delusional, dangerous Trump is harming America's security

President Donald Trump was so unprepared for his telephone conversations with foreign leaders, "outplayed" in his talks with leaders like Russia's President Vladimir Putin and Turkey's President Recep Erdogan, and dismissive with leaders of key United States allies that senior USA officials, including several who served directly with him, say he's often posed dangers to the security of the United States during his presidency, Watergate journalist Carl Bernstein reports in a new expose with CNN. However, when speaking to leaders like Turkish President Recep Erdogan and Russian President Vladimir Putin, Trump would appear to be unprepared, even deferential, allowing himself to be manipulated on key matters of foreign policy.

DONALD TRUMP "bullied and humiliated" Theresa May during phone calls with her when she was prime minister, a report claims.

That's according to a CNN report Tuesday by Carl Woodward that references hundreds of classified chats that Trump has had with heads of state since he came to power, and cites intelligence sources.

The report suggests senior national security and White House officials were left shocked by Trump's behaviour, with descriptions of him ranging from "delusional" to "near-sadistic".

Just before Trump's political job, his son Eric continuously bragged about staying in a position to bypass American banking companies - a lot of of which refused to do enterprise with the Trump group - because the business could get all the revenue it necessary from Russian Federation.

However, Mr Trump's private calls with Vladimir Putin reportedly had the tone of "two guys in a steam bath", but the Russian president "outplays" his USA counterpart.

US President Donald Trump has been very clear about his favourites in the global stage; antagonising long-time US allies like Germany and Canada while being friendly to frequent rivals like Russian Federation and North Korea.

The sources' identities, and their job titles, were not revealed to protect their anonymity, reports CNN, but they revealed in interviews by CNN over a four-month period extending into June that more than a dozen officials had either listened to Trump's phone calls in real-time or had been provided both rough-text printouts or detailed summaries of the conversations.

The calls with Mrs Merkel were so "problematic" German officials reportedly kept the contents in "a small circle". "He's toughest [in the phone calls] with those he looks at as weaklings and weakest with the ones he ought to be tough with". While the insults were "water off a duck's back" for Merkel, May became "flustered and nervous" on the calls.

Merkel and May weren't alone in being verbally abused, CNN reported: Trump is said to have "regularly bullied and disparaged other leaders of the western alliance during his phone conversations", including Trudeau.

"He clearly intimidated her and meant to", the source told Bernstein. Officials have insisted Donald Trump was not "personally" informed of the alleged 2019 deal in Afghanistan. "Everything was always personalized, with everybody doing awful things to rip us off - which meant ripping "me" - Trump - off". "He couldn't - or wouldn't - see or focus on the larger picture". "Erdogan took him to the cleaners", said one of the sources".

"President Trump is a world class negotiator who has consistently furthered America's interests on the world stage".

To others such as North Korean tyrant Kim Jong-un and Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia - who was suspected by the Central Intelligence Agency of ordering the murder in Turkey of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi - Trump is said to have bragged about his own wealth. "From negotiating the phase one China deal and the USMCA to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies contributing more and defeating ISIS, President Trump has shown his ability to advance America's strategic interests".
