Trump-Putin Watch: Trump's Extraordinary morning Tweetstorm (50 + comments on Daily Kos)
Not known to have the patience or incliation to read a long article, it's possible Trump never read beyond the photo, and he didn't have to:
America's racism and narcissism is the reason why its foreign affairs are a mere projection of it's domestic ills.

We talked to Nobel Prize-nominated Johan Galtung, who predicted that someone like Trump would win the US, and that it will trigger a decline in power.
↓“A poll just came out now, Rasmussen, it’s now 51,” Trump said. “They say that it’s 51 but add another 7 or 8 points to it. … They don’t want to talk about it, but when they get into the booth they’re going to vote for Trump.”
What we cannot really know, of course, is whether the president really believes what he’s saying, or just wants other people to believe what he’s saying. But the circular nature of his disinformation can be seductive to people who are inclined in his direction anyway. If the mainstream news about him is “fake” and so are the non-Rasmussen polls, then there’s only one source of information you can trust: the man himself. Evil as it is, it’s as good a method as any to keep his troops feeling upbeat and ready to vote.
