President Trump mocked former President Obama at his rally yesterday, saying that he was well-liked because he was too easy on other world leaders.
“The day that I’m more popular than him, I’m not doing my job,” Trump said of Obama to an enthusiastic crowd on Monday, Washington Examiner reported.
Trump offered one explanation about this. He said his negotiation of trade deals with world leaders is one possible explanation for his lack of global popularity. “They’re not happy … Obama is more popular in Germany than Trump. He’s got to be. I’m making people pay their bills,” he said. “They like him [Obama] more in Europe than they like Trump.“
He further cited that his decaying relationships with world leaders were likely a result of his refusal to do things as his predecessors had.
“We have lousy trade deals that we’re renegotiating,” Trump said.
