Leaked Trump transcripts show his incoherent, ill-informed narcissism

[Editor’s note: The Trump team have been bleating that all the leaks are hurting the USA and making it almost impossible to run the country; in reality, the leaks are hurting Trump and his regime and undermining their legitimacy and authority to rule.

Whoever is doing the leaking is acting in the interests of the US and it’s people; yes, having the world know just how stupid, childish and arrogant the bloviating orange buffoon in charge really is can be seen as a deep embarrassment to the US and it’s people. Only slightly mitigating this embarrassment is the fact that Trump was not elected, he got a little over 30% of the popular vote and it was hacking and manipulation that put his fat orange backside in the big chair.

The leaks can be seen as an encouraging sign that there are people in Washington who are finally waking up and realising what VT has been screaming from the rooftops for months – that Trump is a puppet of an international crime cabal and serves their interests rather than those of the US and it’s people; therefore Trump must be opposed and eventually dragged out of the White House to face justice.

Undermining Trump with these leaks is, in my opinion, a patriotic act by those who know that it would be in the best interests of the US and the entire world if Trump were to fall from power and face criminal charges. Ian]

Leaked Trump transcripts show his incoherent, ill-informed narcissism

One of the most significant aspects of the published transcripts of Donald Trump’s conversations with his Mexican and Australian counterparts is the fact they were leaked.

Private discussions between world leaders are kept secret so they can speak their minds and establish trust. The leaks will make it harder for the U.S. to carry out high-level diplomacy and resolve serious crises, not just under Trump but potentially far beyond his presidency.

The publication of transcripts by the Washington Post is the latest of many signs that established norms are breaking down inside the administration, with far-reaching and unpredictable implications.

Such documents should have been very closely held, accessible to only a few senior officials. Their publication reflects the intensity of the war inside the White House between rival factions – and a reminder that, for all his well-advertised toughness, the new chief of staff, John Kelly, is going to find it very hard to impose discipline on an institution that is dysfunctional from the top down.


It is quite possible that the leaker was motivated by anxiety about the national security implications of Trump’s erratic leadership – that the leak is a cry for help from inside the administration.

The transcripts of his conversations with Enrique Peña Nieto and Malcolm Turnbull show the president to be no more coherent in private than he is public: ill-informed – even about a major attack on U.S. soil – and narcissistic to the point of absurdity.

“I am the world’s greatest person,” he tells Turnbull, and boasts to his fellow world leaders about the size of the crowds who turn out to hear him speak. Maintaining his image as a strong leader in the eyes of his supporters emerges, again and again in the course of the conversations, as an overarching priority – over and above the maintenance of strong relations with allied countries.

The transcripts serve as a reminder that being “nice” to Trump counts for more than long-term strategic alliances. At one point in his castigation of Turnbull, he compared him unfavorably with Vladimir Putin, with whom Trump had recently spoken.

“Putin was a pleasant call. This is ridiculous,” Trump said shortly before ending the call abruptly. In private as in public, Trump’s praise for the Russian president is an unshakeable constant.

Perhaps the least surprising upshot of the release of the transcripts is the confirmation that the president and his administration deliberately misled the public about them. When the Washington Post published an account of the Turnbull conversation in early February, Trump tweeted that it had been a “very civil conversation that fake news media lied about”.

The emergence of the facts

As has happened repeatedly over the course of the administration, the emergence of the facts has upheld the news reports, and shown the denials to be fake. Trump repeatedly tries to coach Peña Nieto on how to mislead the press, urging him to stop repeating Mexico’s refusal to pay for Trump’s proposed border wall.

The wall and its supposed Mexican funding was a mainstay of Trump campaign speeches. In private, Trump tells the Mexican leader to stop reminding voters of a promise the new president cannot fulfil. He argues the wall and its financing is “the least important thing that we are talking about” and says he is in a “political bind” because he had “been talking about it for a two-year period”.

Similar themes recur in the Turnbull conversation. Here, the divisive issue is an agreement that the Obama administration struck with Australia to consider accepting 1,250 refugees, mostly from Muslim countries, being detained by Australia on Pacific islands after trying to enter the country by boat. In return, Australia would host Latin American migrants.

Trump is furious that abiding by the agreement could harm his image among his voters, just after he had signed his first abortive executive order cutting the acceptance of refugees from Syria and suspending travel from a list of seven mainly Muslim countries.

“This is going to kill me. I am the world’s greatest person that does not want to let people into the country,” Trump says. “It makes me look so bad, and I have only been here a week.”

The fact that the refugees in question are from Muslim countries is the key for Trump. “I hate taking these people. I guarantee you they are bad,” he said.

Turnbull pleads with him to stick to the agreement for the sake of the bilateral relationship and in the end, Trump agrees he does not have much choice, but does so with little grace, aiming a personal slight at the Australian, saying he had “brokered many a stupid deal in business”.

For all Turnbull’s attempts to smooth over their differences, Trump is clearly in a foul temper by the end of the discussion, and broader bilateral issues are shelved. When Turnbull asks to discuss Syria and North Korea – two global crises in which their two countries are strategic partners – Trump is not interested and ends the call.

  1. “Any country or nation – Christian or not – following the scent of shekels is not better then Zionism itself.”

    I couldn’t agree more. I guess what I’m trying to say is, an overwhelming majority of people who profess to be Christians, are acting in ways which are diametrically opposed to the teachings attributed to Christ. Personally, I believe in Jesus Christ, but I refuse to identify myself as a “Christian”, because most Christians are not following Christ, but are following his enemies. So, as I said in the beginning, it’s complicated. I hope I didn’t bore you with all that, it’s just hard for me to explain in as few words as possible.

  2. “The dirty work is done by Christians and nothing at all confirms with the 10 commandments which are part of the foundations of Christianity. Christians look very much like the crusaders of Zionism to me Amelius. ”

    If you are familiar with the Bible, do you remember the part where Jesus tells his followers:
    “Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’”

    They may claim to be Christians, but if they’re crusaders of Zionism, (which a large majority of them are) they are practicing lawlessness and cannot possibly be followers of Christ. Not to mention that Zionism was established by the followers of the enemies of Christ, and their actions are diametrically opposed to his teachings.

  3. Jesus always represented the greatest threat to the unjustifiable tyranny of the evil Pharisees and Sadducees, and they killed him. There is no way that anyone can read the Bible and not come away with at least this much. It’s perfectly clear. So why are there millions of people who profess to be Christians, while they worship the enemy of Christ as “God’s chosen people”? Because they’ve been lead astray, by attending institutionalized churches established by followers of the Pharisees, and listening to wolves in sheep’s clothing – men wearing costumes, pretending to be something they’re not.

    I’ve read the words attributed to Jesus Christ and there is no way he would identify with any of the religious institutions that were formed in his name, by the followers of his enemies. He told his followers that they’re better off praying in solitude, than in churches. “And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.”

    “But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.”

  4. “Amelius, isn’t Christianity a “sub religion” created by Zionism as a tool to reach their goal – world dominance?”

    To some extent, yes. However, I believe it’s more complicated than that. I would never profess to understand the subject in it’s entirety, but here’s my take on it. For the most part, the institutionalized religious system which identifies itself as “Christianity”, has been infiltrated and subverted by Zionist parasites. Especially the evangelical branch, with its Scofield Bible funded by close associates of the Rothschild’s.

    The universal Jewish encyclopedia tells us that Judaism, as it exists today, traces its roots without interruption, to the Pharisees. The Bible makes clear what Jesus thought of the Pharisees. He never hesitated to rebuke them publicly, calling them sons of their father the devil, liars, hypocrites, murderers, the synagogue of satan, etc, etc. The Bible also makes clear how desperately the Pharisees sought to kill Jesus. The Pharisees and Sadducees expected their messiah to come and slay their enemies, not to redeem them through the admission of, and repentance for their sins. He told the truth about them and they had no objective response. These hypocrites would never admit their own mistakes, so they arranged the death of Jesus, instead. The Talmud confirms that they killed him.

  5. IMHO-What we are dealing with here is the ruling class of Judaism going to great lengths to pit Christianity and Islam against one another, hoping that Judaism will be the only religion left standing. That way they can impose their talmudic, totalitarian system of global usury, where Jews live like gods ruling over their goyim slaves…

  6. “To stop refugees the world needs to stop all Christian crusades against Islam.”

    Which Christian country is warring against Islam? Keep in mind that the USA is a country that is completely under the boot of the synagogue of satan, and can in no way be considered a “Christian country”. Christianity and Islam revere many of the same prophets, whereas Judaism killed most of these prophets.

  7. It worries me that most msm narratives criticizing trump are about non-issues, like being a Russian stooge and handing Syria to the Russians. In reality, a handful of people in Trump’s admin might have spoken to a handful of Russian people and most of those conversations were nothing out of the ordinary. Whereas, there are 100+ Jews who have managed and sponsored Trump’s campaign, many of whom have ties to Israel, and nobody seems to see this as cause for concern. What if there were 100+ Russians who managed and sponsored Trump? The hysteria would be unfathomable. Trump has done nothing that can be considered favourable towards Russia, but has done many things favourable to Israel.

    It was disgusting to see how some of his harshest critics in Washington and their mockingbird media sang songs of praise for him, after he belligerently and illegally attacked the Syrian airbase. If that base had been staffed by Russian forces, I might not be typing this right now. That insane decision put the whole world at risk, and his harshest critics in Washington and the media praised him for it..It seems to me that they’re criticizing him for all the wrong reasons, as if they’re expecting total war and he’s failing to deliver. With that being said, the Washington Post has been a CIA media outlet since its beginning, has it not? I don’t trust murderous, international drug trafficking thugs, but that doesn’t mean I like anything Trump has done either.

    • Nobody in their right mind wants a confrontation with Russia and the Washington establishment has made sure that Trump cannot publicly cooperate with Russia on any issue. Those who push for unnecessary confrontation with Russia, are the enemies of all mankind and they’re the greatest threat to global security. At this point, I believe switching out Trump for some more compliant stooge, will only hasten our destruction. Every congressman and senator that recently voted in favour of increased sanctions on Russia and refused to sign the stop arming terrorists act, they all need to be replaced. I’m talking about hundreds of traitors to humanity, who will do anything in their power to avoid diplomatic solutions. These are the people who are bought and paid for by those who profit from chaos and they all need to go, if anything is going to change.
