After six months of Trump administration, President is about taking his first state trip abroad and his first leg would be Saudi Arabia, followed by Israel, The Vatican, Italy, and Belgium. It goes without saying that the national embarrassment has already begun.
According to the New York Times report, embassies, ambassadors, dignitaries and civil servants around the world have been debating on how best to host the President and they have come down to four key points, which is expected to, fortunately, entertain the tantrum-prone man-child:
First, Hail Trump on his electoral college victory, and relate him fairly with President Obama.
Second, Don’t expect him to know anything about your country’s history, culture or pressing issues.
Third, Ensure presentations are short to reflect Trump’s very limited attention span and avoid bringing up a lot of issues, especially complicated ones.

A former British envoy, Peter Westmacott, to the U.S., said to the New York Times: “If you were prepping people for Donald Trump, the two or three points would be: one, bear in mind this is still a guy who focuses on wins. Secondly, he is a deal maker, a pragmatist. Third, this is a guy with a limited attention span. He absolutely won’t listen to visitors droning on for a half-hour — or longer if they need an interpreter.”
Trump’s first international trip begins today and his first visit would Saudi Arabia. He had tried to shorten the length of the trip from nine days to five but couldn’t any further as the man-child expressed trepidation at the length of it.
Trump is not less than a national embarrassment since he disrespects his hosts by having little or no information regarding local customs and history. He doesn’t even care to sit and heed to them for longer than four minutes.
Till it’s very clear that he not only lacks to manage his own team but he is only obsessed with his “victory” six months ago when Hillary Clinton earned nearly 3 million more votes than he did.
We only hope that he doesn’t make any permanent damage to relations by insulting any world leaders.
