Trump says he could play matchmaker for India's prime minister Modi

Trump Macron

Yes, that is what happened according to a report by Politico, a US-based portal devoted to covering politics and policy.

President Donald Trump's foibles and mishaps with foreign policy issues are worse than what has previously been made public, according to a recent report. Aides explained that Modi had been estranged from his wife for many years, to which Trump joked: "Ah, I think I can set him up with somebody". While examining a map of South Asia, Trump called Nepal "nipple" and Bhutan "button", the report said, adding that the president did not know these nations existed.

The imitation was presumably to do with what the prime minister reportedly told Trump during his June 2017 state visit.

President Donald Trump has to be reminded of differences in time zones on a "constant basis" as he impulsively attempts to call other world leaders, a diplomatic source told Politico in an article published Monday.

"When he wants to call someone, he wants to call someone".

Trump meant to speak on the phone with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in the middle of the afternoon, apparently unaware that midafternoon in Washington is the middle of the night in Tokyo and Abe would most likely be fast asleep.


Trump is said to have been confused by Nepal and India, which are sandwiched between India and China, with one source recalling: 'He didn't know what those were.

"He's the president of the United States".

When Donald Trump was running for the office of president, part of his appeal to some was his lack of political experience, but with over a year and a half in office some sources say that he still hasn't caught on to some of the finer points of the job, and he seems to have a particular problem with numerous details critical to global politics and relations. It specifically "prohibited top aides from disclosing confidential information in any form including books, without the express permission of the president", a former administration official tells Politico. 'He was like, "What is this stuff in between and these other countries?"

"So I called up, under the guise I'm checking on my card, I said, 'Where are you from?'" He's more impulsive that way.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders told Politico that Trump has developed "strong relationships" with "America's closest allies", which allow for "candid conversations".

Sanders further claimed foreign leaders are appreciative of Trump's willingness to "take their calls day and night".
