Donald Trump’s conversations with former Prime Minister Theresa May have been described as “humiliating and bullying”.
The claims have been made by legendary Watergate journalist Carl Bernstein, who for the past four months investigated the calls of the President with world leaders.
In hundreds of highly classified phone calls with foreign heads of state, he found Trump was consistently underprepared, repeatedly outplayed by US enemies and abusive to allies leaders.
The calls helped convince some senior US officials the President posed a danger to national security.
While pandering to Russian leader Vladimir Putin and Turkey’s Recep Erdogan, he lambasted leaders of countries with a strong allegiance to America.
Bernstein, writing for CNN, said Trump’s main target was female heads of state.
He told Mrs May she was weak and lacked courage while calling German Chancellor Angela Merkel “stupid” on a call.
Trump’s conversations with the former UK Prime Minister between 2016 to 2019, were described as “humiliating and bullying,” with Trump attacking her as “a fool”.
He also labelled her weak in her approach to Brexit, NATO and immigration matters.
“He’d get agitated about something with Theresa May, then he’d get nasty with her on the phone call,” one source told Bernstein.
“It’s the same interaction in every setting – coronavirus or Brexit – with just no filter applied.”
