Donald Trump ’s aides believe he is an idiot with the brain of an 11-year-old, a book claims.
In Fear Trump in the White House, journalist Bob Woodward says Chief of Staff John Kelly told a staff meeting He’s an idiot.
It’s pointless to try to convince him of anything. He’s gone off the rails. We’re in crazy town. I don’t even know why any of us are here. This is the worst job I’ve ever had.
And he claims Defence Secretary James Mattis said Trump had the understanding of a fifth-grader.
Following a chemical weapons attack on Syrian civilians in 2017, Trump reportedly told military brass he wanted to assassinate Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
According to Woodward, the Defence Secretary responded by telling the President he would work on plans, but then hung up the phone and told an aide, We’re not going to do any of that.
Woodward, 75, who along with Carl Bernstein uncovered the Watergate scandal, claims the President’s team have gone to great lengths to avert disaster as they struggle under him.
Trump pushed back against Woodward’s scathing new account of how the White House operates, saying that it’s just another bad book and suggested the journalist made up some of the content.
