'He's the biggest threat to the West he claims to hold dear' - Australian reporter's damning speech on Trump
An Australian reporter's damning speech on President Donald Trump is going viral today.
Political editor of the Australian Broadcasting Company (ABC) Chris Uhlmann described Donald Trump as "uneasy, lonely and awkward" at the G20 meetings.
Mr Uhlmann said the president has "no desire or capacity to lead the world".
The journalist said other leaders at G20 were trying to work around Trump and claimed the United States "was left isolated and friendless" on the issue of the Paris Climate Accord.
He added that the billionaire was only concerned with his celebrity and placed no value on the meaning of words.
Mr Uhlmann further criticised the lack of a statement condemning the North Korea missile tests.
"We learned that Trump has pressed fast forward on the decline of the United States as a global leader. He managed to isolate his nation and to confuse and alienate his allies and to diminish America," he said.
Mr Uhlmann warned that Trump's actions will cede power to authoritarian states like China and Russia who will "forge a very different set of rules for the 21st Century".
"Some will cheer the decline of America but I think we'll miss it when it's gone," he added.
