Theresa May’s allies reject claims that she was “bullied” by Donald Trump

Theresa May’s allies rejected explosive claims that Donald Trump “humiliated and bullied her” during official calls.

Sources close to the former prime minister reported that a report that Ms. May was left “troubled” during conversations with the President of the United States was “utter nonsense”.

However, they admitted that the calls weren’t “always easy, because Theresa sometimes disagreed with him”.

A report released this morning by legendary “Watergate” reporter Carl Bernstein says that Trump had labeled Ms. May a “madman” during the conversations and attacked his management of the Brexit negotiations.

The President of the United States is said to have suggested that Ms. May, who served as PM from July 2016 to July 2019, was “spin-free” in the UK’s divorce talks with the European Union.

Theresa May and Donald Trump, pictured Downing Street in June 2019, appeared to have an affectionate relationship in public, but a new report claims that the President of the United States “mistreated” the then PM during the phone calls

Trump, pictured with Mrs May in the oval office of the White House in January 2017, is said to have called his counterpart a “madman”

The sources apparently described the calls between Mr. Trump and Mrs. May as “humiliating and domineering”.

A source said of Mr Trump: “He would be upset about something with Theresa May, then he would get bad at her during the call.”

“It’s the same interaction in every environment – coronavirus or Brexit – without applying any filters.”

The report claimed that Ms. May had been “flustered and nervous” during calls with a source saying that Trump “had clearly intimidated and intended.”

But a source close to Ms. May rejected the claims, saying to MailOnline: “Calls were not always easy, because Theresa sometimes disagreed with him.

“But to say she was bullied or agitated is utter nonsense.”

Ms. May was the first foreign leader to meet Mr. Trump after its inauguration in 2017, and a famous image of the two leaders holding hands in the White House seemed to signal a close relationship.

However, Trump has become increasingly critical of Ms. May and Britain, publicly reprimanding her in 2017 after criticizing him for having repudiated Britain’s far-right group.

Just before Ms. May’s resignation last year, Trump attacked her again for ignoring her advice on Brexit and making “her foolish way.”

Ms. May had previously revealed that the President of the United States had advised her to sue the EU.

The report released by CNN exposes the details of numerous conversations between Trump and other world leaders.

Trump’s private phone calls with Russian President Vladimir Putin were said to have the tone of “two guys in a steam room”.

The report suggested that Putin “simply explains” his counterpart during their individual interactions.

THERESA MAY: Trump called her a “fool” and would “suck” on the phone, saying she was weak and lacked the courage to Brexit and immigration

ANGELA MERKEL: Trump branded his “fool” and used “aggressive” phone calls to attack German politics in a “humiliating” way

EMMANUEL MACRON: Trump delivered verbal ‘lashes’ as he gets tired of Macron’s continuing motives for changing his mind about Iran and climate change

VLADIMIR PUTIN: Trump boasted of his wealth and intelligence and scolded his predecessors Bush and Obama, but was “defeated” by the Russian president

RECEP TAYYIP ERDOGAN: Turkish leader would be quickly followed by Trump, who would have been “brought by cleaners” due to his poor knowledge of the Middle East

SALMAN BIN MOHAMMED: Trump would call the Saudi leader “without anyone being prepared” and prides himself on his wealth and “great” success as president

KIM JONG UN: Another recipient of Trump’s criticism of his predecessors’ qualities and “idiocy”

During calls and others with foreign leaders, Trump reportedly attempts to publicize his wealth and success in conversations that his aides apparently consider “delusional”.

Along with statements about calls with Mr. Putin and Mrs. May, Mr. Trump would have called German Chancellor Angela Merkel “stupid” in the face.

“Some of the things she said to Angela Merkel are simply incredible: she called her” stupid “and accused her of being in the Russian pocket,” according to a source.

Sources describe how Trump’s former allies, including John Bolton, James Mattis, John Kelly and Rex Tillerson, were alarmed by the calls and feared that the President was endangering national security.

The conversations with Putin are part of a call network between Trump and the leaders of Australia, Turkey, Canada, Australia and Western European countries during his presidency which officials who view the transcripts of the calls describe as “abominations”.

In Russia’s case, a source expressed concern that Trump would waste the “advantage that had been severely gained during the Cold War” apparently wishing for Putin’s approval.

Bernstein said that if the notes and transcripts of the calls were made public, some Republican allies of Mr. Trump in Congress would have a hard time defending him.

Daniel Goldman, a chamber attorney during Trump’s impeachment investigation, said officials had gone to the media with their concerns rather than through “adequate channels” after the President of the United States attacked the informant. who first drew attention to the Ukrainian scandal.

“When you take the right path through revengeful revenge, you cannot complain about losses,” said Goldman.

Trump got the job in 2016 despite media criticism for his repeated praise for Putin, although Russia has revealed that U.S. intelligence is orchestrating election interference and a hacking campaign.

In addition to repeatedly referring to his wealth, as he has repeatedly done in public, Trump would have enjoyed running the Miss Universe contest in Moscow, according to the report.

A source ruined the calls, saying that while Putin destabilizes the West, Trump “sits there and thinks he can build himself quite as a businessman and tough that Putin will respect him.”

Erdogan’s hotline to Trump

The Turkish Recep Tayyip Erdogan is said to have been followed by Donald Trump when he called the White House.

Mr. Erdogan bypassed the usual protocols on Mr. Trump’s orders and even reached the President of the United States on the golf course.

White House aides even feared that Turkish security agents in the United States were observing Trump’s program so that Erdogan knew when to call.

In their conversations, Mr. Erdogan exploited Mr. Lack’s lack of knowledge. Trump for the Middle East and “brought him to the cleaners,” sources say.

But Trump would also get angry with Erdogan over the trade and fate of an American shepherd who was arrested in Turkey.

The report was released a few days after the New York Times reported that Trump had been informed of intelligence that Moscow had paid generosity to the Taliban elements for the killings of American soldiers.

The White House on Monday denied that Trump was informed of the reported program.

Mr. Trump was described as a reminder of Mr. Putin in the calls. Putin is known as a skilled former KGB operator who often finds himself in televised encounters with counterparts.

Trump would also boast of his wealth, intelligence and accomplishments to leaders such as Kim Jong-un from North Korea and Mohammed bin Salman from Saudi Arabia.

Two sources say that Trump seems “delusional” in his foreign leader’s calls, including frequent contacts with Turkish dictator Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who allegedly would have been followed to speak with the President of the United States when he called the White House.

White House aides even became alarmed that Turkish security agents in Washington were following Trump’s movements so that Erdogan knew when to call, the report says. On one occasion he apparently joined Mr. Trump on the golf course.

In their conversations, Mr. Erdogan exploited Mr. Lack’s lack of knowledge. Trump for the Middle East and “brought him to the cleaners,” sources say.

But Trump would also get angry with Erdogan over the trade and fate of an American shepherd who was arrested in Turkey.

Apparently, Trump would have sought out his U.S. predecessors in phone calls with Erdogan and Putin, who both used political power to crack down on dissent.

“They didn’t know BS,” apparently Mr. Trump said of the nemesis Barack Obama and George W. Bush.
