Re “Trump Undercuts Leader of Britain After NATO Clash” (front page, July 13):
So far President Trump’s European travels have shown him to be a human wrecking ball. From the NATO summit meetings to his visit to Britain, the president is leaving a trail of destruction in his wake.
Mr. Trump tore into our NATO allies over their “delinquent” and insufficient military spending, despite a pre-existing agreement to raise spending by 2024.
In Britain he stunningly criticized Prime Minister Theresa May’s position on Brexit and even exclaimed that former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson would make “a great prime minister.” Mr. Trump’s performance has been merely astounding.
The president’s performance abroad shows him at best to be an embarrassing neophyte in international diplomacy and at worst someone who is simply in far over his head and beyond his level of competency.
Soon Mr. Trump is off to a summit meeting in Helsinki with President Vladimir Putin of Russia. The world waits to see if he will continue to create shock waves that will upset the established world order.
