In the wake of President Donald Trump’s comments on Friday that he supports NATO’s collective defense clause, known as Article 5, an attendee who sat in on a private dinner with world leaders and Trump in late May called Trump’s performance that evening a “total shitshow.”
Speaking with Foreign Policy, the source said Trump entered the closed-door dinner with two different speeches to give – but instead dumped them both and winged causing world leaders in attendance to be “appalled.”
“Oh, it was like a total shitshow,” explained the source.
“The dinner was far worse than the speech,” added a former senior U.S. official who was briefed on the dinner. “It was a train wreck. It was awful.”
At issue was Trump’s demand for more money, with sources stating that Trump demanded the other NATO countries begin contributing 3 percent of their GDP.
The attendee noted that Trump never once mentioned Russia during his diatribe.
