Politics is supposed to stop at the border, but not for President Obama, who bashed the now-presumptive Republican nominee today while appearing in Japan.
Trump today reached the number of delegates needed to secure the nomination of the first ballot.
Obama said of world leaders are “rattled” by Trump:
They’re rattled by him, and for good reason, because a lot of the proposals that he’s made display either ignorance of world affairs, or a cavalier attitude, or an interest in getting tweets and headlines instead of actually thinking through what it is that is required to keep America safe and secure and prosperous and what’s required to keep the world on an even keel.
Actually, the person who has been giving world leaders dyspepsia for the last eight years by abnegating U.S. leadership and allowing ISIS to proliferate is Obama. And to ascend the bully pulpit in Japan to attack the man who might be president, however much Obama loathes him, is about as unpresidential as it gets and potentially harmful to U.S. interests.
