NATO – Paris and Trump’s latest tweetstorm make clear the president no longer listens to even his closest advisers.
The last few days have revealed that President Donald Trump has now gone beyond just playing the different factions within his administration off one another.
He has apparently rejected them all.
What happens when the leader of the most powerful nation on Earth refuses to listen to anyone?
Over last weekend Trump took to Twitter and demonstrated that he has no intention of listening to anyone or following even the most basic legal advice.
I mentioned on Monday that he had rudely insulted the mayor of London in the wake of Saturday night’s terrorist attack.
He also taunted gun safety advocates and referenced a need to ‘get smart’ on terrorism – which in the past he has defined as using torture and killing family members of those associated with terrorist groups.
His Twitter tantrum was widely noted in the press but it doesn’t seem to have made him think twice.
On Monday morning he really woke up on the wrong side of the bed and started angrily tweeting once again.
Even his staunchest supporters are becoming alarmed.
