Trump surrogate claims foreign leaders will never insult Trump — and CNN host laughs in his face
CNN anchors are having a hard time keeping a straight face when Donald Trump’s campaign surrogates make absurd claims. Wednesday it was Alisyn Camerota’s turn. The host asked what Trump would do if a foreign leader insulted him, the answer was certainly laughable.
“You know, Philippines President Duterte keeps insulting the U.S. and President Obama,” Camerota began. “What would Donald Trump do if a president insulted him?”
“Well, they’re not going to insult Mr. Trump the same way they have insulted President Obama,” Trump surrogate Jason Miller said.
Camerota was floored, “You don’t think that the president of the Philippines, who keeps saying he’s a lightning rod, and keeps saying outlandish things, you think that if Donald Trump were president all of that would go away?!” She exclaimed. “No foreign leaders would ever insult the U.S. President?”
“I think what you’re going to see is we’re going to get back to winning again and that’s with Mr. Trump in the presidency, he’s going to be someone who these foreign leaders will respect,” Miller concluded.
Camerota simply laughed. “I’m sorry, I want to move on but I just want to make sure you think that so if he were insulted, if Donald Trump were insulted, by any foreign leader, what would he do?”
Miller replied that he thought Trump would probably speak his mind. That’s exactly the fear many foreign experts and military have.
