Trump's last 2 attempts to discuss foreign policy have been complete and utter disasters.

During a news conference on Thursday ahead of his trip to Great Britain, President Trump was asked an extremely basic question about Brexit.

“You are going to the U.K. — what will be your message on Brexit?” a reporter asked him.

Trump was completely unprepared to respond in any substantial or coherent way. Instead, he began by defensively claiming he has “been reading a lot about Brexit over the last couple days.” But after a few seconds of stammering, he admitted, “I have no message. It is not for me to say.”

The president quickly pivoted to providing a free plug for his private club in ....

-Snip-

A day later, Trump held another news conference, this one in the U.K. alongside British Prime Minster Theresa May. Ahead of his upcoming summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Trump was asked “what your message will be to him on Syria?”

His answer at link. Astoundingly unprepared.

4. President Obama said it best..."He's nothing but a bullshitter,"

(CNN)While President Donald Trump is embroiled in controversy -- with regularity -- Barack and Michelle Obama are enjoying a less-harried lifestyle these days, at least according to the cover story in the new issue of People magazine.

The magazine catches readers up with the Obamas, post-White House, with tidbits on how Michelle exercises (SoulCycle), whether she buys lunch each day or brings it in a bag (bag, often times it's turkey chili) and if she still has access to Secret Service vehicles (yes, but just one SUV that her entire staff piles into, according to an aide.)

Also of note in the feature? Barack Obama apparently thinks Trump is full of it.

"He's nothing but a bullshitter," is what a friend who spoke with People said of how the former president described the current president shortly after the election. The friend says Obama's opinion of Trump since then "hasn't gotten any better."
