It seems as if the leader of the world's most powerful country left a feeble impression on world leaders at the G20 summit.
President Donald Trump's "America first" approach has left the country isolated. His policies and actions caught up with him at the G20 summit, where the commander-in-chief was apparently feeling lonely due to the lesser amount of attention he received.
All of this was revealed in the brutal, and viral, takedown of Trump and his foreign policy by an Australian journalist.
Chris Uhlmann, the political editor of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), was in Hamburg, Germany, for the G20 conference where he could not help but notice that Trump has "no desire and no capacity to lead the world."
The journalist delivered a fine narration of what Trump faced in the summit on ABC’s political talk show “Insiders.”
The clip has since gone viral.
Uhlmann mentioned the fears most Americans had about Trump having "pressed fast-forward on the decline of the United States as a global leader."
He also enlightened the audience how Trump seemed to have isolated himself and subsequently the U.S. from the rest of the world at international platforms, describing the business mogul as an "uneasy, lonely, awkward figure," — a mere annoyance that other world leaders tried to "find the best way to work around."
The journalist, who didn’t mince words with his brutally honest takedown of the U.S. commander-in-chief, also shared a cutting insight of Trump's work and his words.
Although at platforms like G20, Trump may be found speaking coherently, Uhlman warned us against falling for this scripted eloquence, which is completely different than reality.
"There's a tendency among some hopeful souls to confuse the speeches written for Trump with the thoughts of the man himself — he did make some interesting, scripted observations in Poland about defending the values of the West. And he's in a unique position. He's the one man who has something to do something about it," Uhlmann said.
"But it's the un-scripted Trump that's real: a man who barks out vile in a 140 characters, who wastes his precious days as president at war with the West institutions like the judiciary, independent agencies and the free press."
Everyone lauded this two-minute scathing analysis on Twitter.
Wow. This analysis of Trump from an Australian reporter is quite something. Watch the whole clip. pic.twitter.com/u0mroeWD3W— Yashar Ali (@yashar) July 9, 2017
