Trumpian friendship

Jun 2013
1. Speaking of his much-touted "very very great relationship and personal bond" with the Chinese leader over the 19 months since they first met, Donald Trump claimed, rather sarcastically, that both “will always be friends, no matter what happens with our dispute on trade.”

Woe betide anyone whom Trump claims as his “good friend”. Here I coin the term "Trumpian friendship" for such a bizarre "friendship" in which somebody touts you as his "good friend" on the one hand but stabs you in the back and front on the other. If you happen to be in the same boat with such a fellow as Trump in a storm, it is just a matter of time you will be thrown overboard.

2. According to an article by Daniel Bates on 4 June 2018 in reference to Kate Anderson Brower's book, narcissistic Trump will never miss a chance to have a dig at anyone even if you show your subservience to him. For instance, he mocks Mike Pence's piety behind his back. The book lifts the lid on the relationship between Trump and Pence and reveals the President asks visitors to the West Wing: “Did Mike make you pray?”

As well as mocking Pence's faith, Trump once sarcastically suggested he was his servant during a meeting in the Situation Room. Trump's former strategist Steve Bannon said that this was Trump's way of making “Pence know who's boss”. Such is the level of mockery by the President that one of Pence's friend's said she would not be surprised if Trump had nicknamed Pence “the deacon”.

In conclusion, just check the long list of notable members of both the White House and the Trump administration at large who have left their posts.‘my-friend’-xi

Trump Turns On Fox News And Tells Aides To Make Whatever They’re Saying A Law

WASHINGTON—Demanding aides write down every single word from the morning’s Fox & Friends broadcast, President Trump turned on Fox News Tuesday and directed his staff to take everything its anchors were saying and make it into a law, White House sources confirmed. “Whatever they’re talking about right now, just draft it up and put it on my desk so I can sign it,” said Trump as he reportedly rewound the TiVo in the Oval Office dining room and replayed a sound bite from Steve Doocy that is expected to become the law of the land by the end of the week. “There’s a lot of really good material here—you’ve got the caravan, stuff about guns, ISIS—make sure you get it all down. You hear the places where they’re chuckling? Put that in there, too. I want everything.” At press time, sources said the president’s aides were handing him a final draft of an executive order that appeared to be a verbatim 60-page transcription of Your World With Neil Cavuto, complete with the text of several ads for IHOP and Sandals Resorts.
