Trump smashed subordinates for Putin's missed call


A recent book, Trump and Its Generals: The Price of Chaos, written by American journalist Peter Bergen, among other things, mentions a case that occurred in 2017 surrounded by Donald Trump. Then director of the intelligence department of the defense department Michael Flynn and a number of employees of the presidential administration did not inform him of the phone call of Russian President Vladimir Putin.


According to Bergen, it turned out by chance. In January 2017, during a dinner with Donald Trump and the British Prime Minister, Theresa May asked the American president if Vladimir Putin had called him, to which the latter replied that he did not. Then Michael Flynn, who was standing near the president, told him in his ear that a few days ago there was a call from the Russian leader.

Such an answer was extremely indignant to Trump, who immediately lectured Flynn:

Are you joking? Vladimir Putin tried to call me ... What were you thinking?

To this, Flynn tried to justify that then many called the presidential administration, but Trump did not even listen to him. He noted that Putin is the only person in the world "able to wipe America off the face of the earth."

Before that, Putin and Trump first talked on the phone in 2016, and their first personal meeting took place at the G2017 in Hamburg a little later, in July XNUMX.

    Sometimes Trump is very adequate.

      Yes, he always seems adequate, just sometimes puts on a clown mask. And according to this story itself, it’s a completely normal reaction, take any president, miss the call of another foreign leader through the fault of subordinates, who will be happy? And rightly so, that he arranged for subordinates to thrash, it is necessary to show who the owner is in the white house .... although after his last decision, there are big doubts about this. Suleimani was liquidated with good reason, this is a step with far-reaching consequences, and it seems that Iran’s reaction, as well as subsequent major incidents that will soon be, is already taken into account in American plans for BV.

        Yes, he does not just live in the White House, but he tries.
        Along the way, he still manages to troll the "democrats".

        Perhaps Suleimani acted in Iraq more in personal interests than in the interests of the state. Then he just miscalculated. In this case, there will be no serious steps on the part of Iran against the United States.

    Some kind of author’s imagination for the sake of a word ... "Missed" call of one world leader to another ... Bullshit .. there the system generally works differently, and not "Putin dialed Trump's number, and there are only beeps ..."

    Trump noted that Putin is the only person in the world who "can wipe America off the face of the earth."

    Namely, this phrase of Trump makes it clear the meaning of the American mentality. Only a real threat to Russia makes them be adequate.

      it would be something urgent on the vanguard would send .. you probably just do not quite know that the flight time has been reduced to a minimum already and direct contact is simply necessary .. and there I didn’t pick up the phone as the American proverb says - the sheriff’s problems are not interesting. besides, we don’t have to offend Russian hackers to pull him for a second term wassat

    Poor Donya ... I didn’t receive instructions from the GDP in the 17th and here is the result for you, I got Russiagate. It’s all Flynn’s fault, he should not occupy the post of national security adviser, but to wash toilets and not interfere with our Donyushka getting TSU from GDP. Since then, Don has been spinning and otmazyvaya from us by all truths and not truths.
