Here is a good summary of the embarrassing, humiliating performance of our light-weight president in front of other world leaders. Paul Krugman is a Nobel Laureate in Economics and if anyone is capable of assessing the falsity of Trump's claims it is Krugman. Let's face it, Trump is an ignoramus who is psychologically damaged and a huge swath of the American public doesn't have a clue or doesn't care. One of the reasons so much of the public remains in the dark is that the media loves the ratings this clown brings to the networks. The upshot is that for the majority of Americans, politics is the news from nowhere.
