Many foreign leaders who had previously dismissed or labeled Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump as a clown are now coming to grips with the prospect he could be the next President of the United States.
British Prime Minister David Cameron described Trump’s plan to ban Muslims from travelling to the U.S. as “Divisive, stupid and wrong.” Yet he acknowledged that Trump “deserves our respect” for prevailing through the primary process. Cameron stood by his earlier comment on Trump’s proposed policy. “I’m very clear that the policy idea that was put forward was wrong, is wrong and will remain wrong, so I’m very clear on that.”
Regarding Trump’s plan to build the 1,954 mile wall between Mexico and the USA and have Mexico pay for it, Mexican President Vicente Fox said, “I’m not going to pay for that f**king wall.” After Trump became the presumptive Republican nominee, Fox extended an olive branch of peace to Trump, “If I offended you, I’m sorry.”
Fox also commented on his apology on Breitbart, “Forgiveness is one of the greatest qualities that human beings have, is the quality of a compassionate leader. You have to be humble. You have to be compassionate. You have to love thy neighbor.” He suggested Trump should do likewise. “What about the other way around?”
Prince al-Waleed of Saudi Arabia said Trump was a “Disgrace.” Trump called the Prince “Dopey.”
By contrast, Russian President Vladimir Putin has maintained generally favorable comments about Trump, describing him as “A very colorful and talented man.”
Now, with Trump presenting an unexpected threat to become the next leader of the free world, the global aristocracy is scrambling to reclaim favor or dine on crow.
