H.R. McMaster confided Trump is an ‘idiot’ and ‘dope’ during private meeting with tech CEO: report

Published

on

According to a report by Buzzfeed, National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster ridiculed President Donald Trump during a private dinner with the CEO of Oracle.

Four sources claim they overheard one of Trump’s most trusted advisers confide to CEO Safra Catz — who was under consideration for a job in the administration — that his boss was both an “idiot” and a dope,” adding that Trump has the smarts of a “kindergartner.”

A separate source also claimed McMaster disparaged Trump in a private conversation, saying he didn’t have the intellectual firepower to understand national security issues.

Spokespersons for both the National Security Council and Oracle deny the claims, with NSC spokesman Michael Anton issuing a statement saying, “Actual participants in the dinner deny that General McMaster made any of the comments attributed to him by anonymous sources. Those false comments represent the diametric opposite of General McMaster’s actual views.”

McMaster’s critical comments would not be the first delivered in private by a Trump cabinet member.

In October, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was reportedly considering quitting, no longer wishing to work for Trump and calling him a  “moron.”

"Anyone insinuating that there was some premeditated plan to orchestrate the “send her back” chant is obviously desperate to continue pushing a biased, racially-charged narrative. #FakeNews," Trump posted to her Twitter account on Saturday. She included a link to the Washington Examiner, a right-leaning newspaper which included a quote from Cooper blasting Trump for supposedly "lying" about her role in whipping up a crowd to chant "send her back" about Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.

Trump’s trade war with China has led to foreign investments in the US drying up: report

Published

on

Not only are U.S. manufacturers and farmers feeling the devastating brunt of Donald Trump's ongoing trade war with China -- among other countries -- now the New York Times reports that foreign investors no longer see America as a safe bet to park their money.

According to the report, "the once steady flow of Chinese cash into America, with Chinese investment plummeting by nearly 90 percent since President Trump took office."

With the report stating, the drop-off "stems from tougher regulatory scrutiny in the United States and a less hospitable climate toward Chinese investment, as well Beijing’s tightened limits on foreign spending," one analyst blamed the increasingly hostile trade relationship between the two countries.
