Obama: World Leaders Are ‘Rattled’ by Trump — and for Good Reason
President Obama said Thursday that world leaders are “rattled” by presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and that he doesn’t blame them for being worried about the real estate mogul’s political rise.
“They are not sure how seriously to take some of his pronouncements but they’re rattled by him, and for good reason,” Obama said. “A lot of the proposals that he has made display either ignorance of world affairs or a cavalier attitude or an interest in getting tweets and headlines instead of actually thinking through what it is required to keep America safe.”
Though it was one of Obama’s sharper criticisms of Trump, the president did not call the billionaire candidate by name in his public remarks.
