Trump Alone G20

From Politico Magazine;

Trump bragged about his presidency and world leaders laughed

World leaders laughed Tuesday after President Donald Trump said in a speech to the United Nations General Assembly that his administration had accomplished more than any other in American history.

“In less than two years, my administration has accomplished more than almost any administration in the history of our country,” Trump said near the start of a speech before the assembled world leaders, prompting audible laughter.

“It’s so true,” Trump continued, before acknowledging the laughter. “I didn’t expect that reaction, but that’s okay,” he said, smirking and raising his eyebrows.

It’s unusual for a U.S. president to draw unintentional laughs at a gathering of world leaders, and Trump has long complained that foreign governments are laughing at the U.S. for what he views as weak policies on trade and other issues.

“They laugh at us. Behind our backs, they laugh at us because of our own stupidity,” he said in an appearance on “Larry King Live” three decades ago, according to NPR.

“We need a President who isn’t a laughing stock to the entire World,” he tweeted in 2014, well before he launched his presidential campaign.

After the brief interruption, Trump continued with his speech, in which he touted the country’s economic growth and rising stock market as evidence for his administration’s success, arguing that he made the country “much stronger and richer than it was when I took office less than two years ago.”

Trump addressed the General Assembly after a news-filled day at the United Nations, where he vowed to continue sanctions against Iran to take down its nuclear program and signed a revised trade deal with South Korean President Moon Jae-in.

    Heart Breaking. In all my years I have never seen such an embarrassment for the country on the world stage. There were times I disagreed strongly with the US president but the office and the person holding it drew respect on the world stage especially when addressing the U.N. I never thought the day would come when a lying bragging narcissist leader of our country would be simply so debase our country and hold it up for ridicule in front of the world because of the need to fake personal greatness. How far we have fallen. I think it is easier to fall than get back up. How or when will we again stand tall and proud. Hugs

  3. The man has no moral compass, no ethics, no empathy, no civility. He is all about money and if we knew the truth he probably has very little of that. He is a bankrupt piece of human flesh trying to be somebody and the world laughs at him…..”look, the king, he has no clothes.”

    • In the book “Fear” Steve Bannon tells Trump he needs to write a check for $50 million to fund his campaign. He can’t. Jared Kushner tells Bannon that Trump might give the campaign $10 million and notes “Donald doesn’t have a lot of cash.” Watch the video of him being laughed at he is really taken aback. The truth is this, The Donald isn’t as rich as he tells us, as tough as he tells us or as smart as he tells us. He is a legend in his own mind and the simple, feeble minds of his Deplorable base.
