  1. I know the best words……. I know the best people…….. I’m a very stable genius……… you know it and I know it………

    • @Rimrock300 Not only Obama. Every president before Trump wrote very formal letters even in the direst situations so as not to be the laughingstock of the world

    • @LB2007 Yeah, we know, formalities, formalities, that’s the unwritten rules. But Trump is a different kind of President, and have a more informal tone, as we all know. Strange to see the reactions on this 1 letter, when his tweeter tone of formulating himself have been known for years.

  2. President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan of Turkey is so afraid, he is probably busy now making a sandwich.

    • @KB Peters Trupsters were 1st bragging how it’s great he is bringing our troops home. I mentioned he is now send our troops to Saudi Arabia. They replied “We were invited”. Since then, I have been looking for bleach to pour in my ears.

      Erdogan is great leader and our protector in muslim world against colonialist americans and Marxist ypg militants. Long may erdogan rule 😍

    • @Donovan
      Ouch…but I empathize. It’s okay to desert our dying allies with a lie that American troops are coming home….and then increase our military presence in Saudi Arabia so we can fight against Iran.

      Trump made the excuse that we are no longer helping the Kurds because they did not help us in WWII. However, Saudi Arabia was not on the beaches of Normandy instead 15 of them murdered 3000 Americans 9-11…that is all fine…no problem.

    • A TURKEY Sandwich? (Sorry, I couldn’t help it!)

    Well he definitely wrote that

  4. Hope the World doesn’t judge America too harshly – anyone is susceptible to genital herpes.

    • The Vodka is flowing in Moscow and whatever they drink in Beijing is flowing, these past few days, as our Adversaries salivate at the prospect that America is no longer the World’s “Superpower”, with all that implies!

    • @rdelrosso2001
      I already spoke to those…in an earlier post…about America…however, my post of the snake…apply for that same scenario too…

    • Trump is just a symptom of your disease(s). Considering what your government have been doing all around the world, some may even say that you are the disease.

    • @CCC That may be so…then, I’m certain…it is, as to, prayerfully, get one more glimpse at beauty and light…before, going into eternal darkness…!!!

  5. I would have been ashamed of that prose if I had written it in the 3rd grade.

  6. This guy is crazy

  7. Honestly, I have to pinch myself 100x’s…is this really real America? Everyone is speechless…this is embarrassing🤦🤦🤦😳😳😳

    • Well whoever voted him into office should pat themselves on the back. LMFAO!!! And the whole Republican party who still pats him on the back for doing such a great job and defending him!

    • Sounds more like a mobster threat then a diplomatic cable

    • Trump dares to be different, not swim in the same direction and speed like all the other fish in the river:) Being different always brings pointing fingers, but Trump just don’t care at all:)

      @Rimrock300 I’m quite sure he sees himself as a lateral thinker as well.

  8. Trump has the mindset and vocabulary of a lobotomized meth head with Alzheimer’s.

  9. We have a child in the White House.

  10. Call it what it is: the ramblings of a glorified man child.

    Have you EVER seen anyone more out of their league than this buffoon? 🤦🏻‍♂️

    • Actually, no. I do not think I have seen anyone, in real life at least, more out of their league than this. With this sort of writing, I think running an ice cream truck would be out of his league but, well, I’d be willing to let him try at least.

    • Frankly, no. It’s like we’re all being punished by some diabolical affirmative action role reversal experiment. The most incompetent and least qualified are being parachuted into the most important roles.

    • No.. even in x factor they leave eventually

    If we would just lock up everything associated with trump, the national crime rate would plummet.

  13. Oh dear God in Heaven, Drumpf is more of an imbecile than I even imagined.

    • Baruch Ben-David | October 17, 2019 at 12:54 AM | Reply

      Yeah. But I’ve been saying that every week.

    • Really?
      Then you need to give that imagination a heavy workout cause some people have been saying it for decades.
      Central Park 5
      The Birther accusations

      Pretty clear evidence that he was exceptionally stupid.

    • If you think that sounds stupid, listen to the speech yesterday where he said the USSR had to “downsize” because they lost so much money in Afghanistan.
      In his mind he may have thought they were going to layoff thousands of their citizens to save money, he is clearly not capable of fulfilling the role.

  14. Letter isn’t a Joke..
    Trump is the JOKE.
    Only it’s no longer funny!

    • don’t stop there , elaborate on just how serious the consequences are . the security of the nation is now in jeopardy . the president of the US will no longer listen to generals of the armed forces or his own Republican party . this reflects the actions of a dictator .
      this is totally backward . a president who is pro gun , except when it comes to the US military or the nation’s allies . what a coward . tough language in a letter is not a substitute for a military presence . our enemies are laughing at us .

  15. The national humiliation that is Trump continues.

  16. Erdogan to dopey: Don’t play the tough guy, just be the fool that you are’.

    • So true, Trump projects so obviously that it is painful to listen to him. It is especially awful to watch him make a fool out of himself, since he is selling our country down the river while he is doing it.

    • Trump was played. He has shown what a moronic patsy he is. Erdogan has HUMILIATED the USA.

      Erdogan has stated that he is refusing to meet with the highest delegation we have ever sent to Turkey. Erdogan see Trump as weak…the Turks saw how he kowtows with fawning over North Korea, China, Russia and Saudi Arabia.

      After giving all the information on the locations where our military were, the Turks were attacking a mere 4 miles away from US troops on the ground. And when our military complained Erdogan didn’t want to hear it.

      Meanwhile….Russia troops have now moved into northern Syria.

    For destroying our country and being a traitor for Russia,he should face a firing squad

  18. Dear Trump supporters,



    The rest of the world

  19. So, his letters to foreign leaders are as meaningless and lack of substance as his usual mumblings.

    • I Love the 80s | October 17, 2019 at 12:19 AM | Reply

      Well he had to keep it simple for his Trumpster cultists to understand. But seriously, is this his “art of the deal”?

  20. Are you smarter than a 5th grader?
    Based on Trump’s letter: NO.
