According to author Michael Wolff, if President Donald Trump attends the royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle he will hog the limelight and treat Queen Elizabeth as if she is a reality show member in his own show.
Speaking with the Daily Mail, the author of Fire and Fury: Inside Trump’s White House, said it was still up in the air whether Trump will be at the wedding, but danger lurks if he does attend.
The author said, given what he saw of Trump during his time lurking about the White House to report his book, he believes the president will use the occasion to show off for the world and will show up the Queen.
“He sees the Queen in reality TV show terms. That’s the Trump modus operandi,” Wolff explained. “He will try to Trumpalise the Queen and Buckingham Palace.”
“He doesn’t like being snubbed and wants to be the center of attention all the time,” Wolff added before getting into how Trump views Great Britain.
“Trump’s foreign policy doctrine is simple: you Brits suck up to him and enlist in whatever geopolitical fantasy he has going, he’ll give you what you want – though only if it doesn’t hurt him,” Wolff stated. “It is not so much vengeance, rather ‘you flatter me and I’ll flatter you.'”
Wolff also revealed that Trump isn’t much interested in news of the world, saying, “I interviewed Trump two weeks before your 2016 referendum and he had no idea what Brexit was.”
