Journalist Chris Uhlmann van het Australische ABCnews laat geen spaan heel van Trump’s prestaties op de G20 top:
He is a character drawn from America’s wild west, a travelling medicine showman selling moonshine remedies that will kill the patient.
Over Trump’s speech in Polen:
He did make some interesting, scripted, observations in Poland about defending the values of the West.
But it is the unscripted Mr Trump that is real. A man who barks out bile in 140 characters, who wastes his precious days as President at war with the West’s institutions — like the judiciary, independent government agencies and the free press.
Om uiteindelijk te concluderen:
We learned Mr Trump has pressed fast forward on the decline of the US as a global leader. He managed to diminish his nation and to confuse and alienate his allies.
Some will cheer the decline of America, but I think we’ll miss it when it is gone.
And that is the biggest threat to the values of the West which he claims to hold so dear.
