Igor KOZLOV, “the FACTS”
On Tuesday, June 30, several world-famous politicians were forced to comment on posts that appeared on the website of CNN and British newspaper The Daily Mail. They sources in the White house talk about how conducts telephone conversations the President of the United States Donald trump. Put together this information , the legendary American journalist Carl Bernstein, made famous half a century ago, along with his colleague Bob Woodward, exposing the actions of Richard Nixon and in fact forcing him to resign as head of state. This episode went down in history as the Watergate scandal.
And now Bernstein took over trump. “FACTS” gathered the most vivid excerpts from publications in CNN and The Daily Mail and transferred them.
“Private phone conversations of US President Donald trump with the Russian President Vladimir Putin is sometimes reminiscent of a conversation between two men in the steam room”, says Carl Bernstein. Trump just puffs out to get the approval of the Russian authoritarian leader. And Putin replays trump during their talks one-on-one on all counts.
During these telephone conversations trump regularly tries to praise his own wealth, intelligence and ability to succeed. He usually calls his predecessors Imbeciles and weaklings. “Trump sits there and thinks he can fill his worth as a businessman and a tough guy, Putin will respect him…” said Bernstein, one of his sources.
This is not the trump behaves with the leaders of Australia, Canada and Western Europe. Especially goes for politicians-women. Former Prime Minister of great Britain Teresa may, he openly declared that it is weak and can not carry Brexit. And German Chancellor Angela Merkel at trump’s face said she was stupid!
Officials, who had access to the transcripts of these telephone conversations, call them an abomination.
In conversations with Merkel trump constantly criticized her for what Germany buys Russian gas. But he did it in a very rude aggressive manner. He said that Merkel is so stupid that doesn’t understand how it was “in the pocket of the Russians.”
We must pay tribute to the Chancellor, says Bernstein. Merkel outwardly remained calm, not to succumb to provocative taunts trump and answered him with a calm statement of facts. But the behavior of the American President was so outrageous that in Berlin decided to halve the number of people with access to these phone conversations.
Former chief of staff USA John Kelly privately called these phone calls are detrimental to national security.
Aggressive calls trump may was “almost sadistic”, says another source Bernstein. These conversations can be called humiliating and intimidating. The President always condemned the Prime Minister for its “spineless” approach to Brexit.
As you know, this problem may mainly engaged in the course of his three-year Premiership. Contacts British Prime Minister with a trump left her flustered and intimidated, as opposed to tranquility Merkel.
About the way the President behaved in a telephone conversation with Prime Minister of Australia Scott Morrison. Trump regularly mocked him and belittled him hostile and aggressive manner.

But Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan trump had behaved differently. Sources Bernstein got the impression that trump “was in the illusions.” He demanded that it quickly switched Erdogan, when he was called to the White house.
Their phone conversations were so frequent that the White house staff even began to worry that agents of the Turkish security services are secretly monitoring the movements of trump, and Erdogan knows what time to call.
Bernstein argues that these calls are stored in two variants — a voice computer files, and transcripts, made by professional secretaries.
This also applies to the infamous telephone conversation trump with the President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky. This conversation became the main part of the impeachment process launched against trump Democrats, but that failed. As you know, the President of the United States believes this conversation is perfect.”
The first publication responded to the press service of Scott Morrison. The commentary underlines that “the Prime Minister was only polite, respectful and positive telephone conversations with the President of the United States”.
Theresa may denies that the trump was rude to her. However, she acknowledged that these phone conversations were always difficult.
The greatest impact of the publication caused in Germany. The Federal Agency for press and information, refused to confirm or deny the information contained in the articles. Referred to the “privacy of negotiations between the Federal Chancellor”.
However, CNN has published a review of the official high-ranking official from Berlin, who said that the German government was forced to take special measures to ensure that the contents of telephone conversations trump and Merkel will remain confidential. This was done because of the “unusual key” statements of the American leader.
“The calls were so unusual that Berlin had to reduce the number of persons who follow the course of these discussions”, — said the official.
Earlier, the “FACTS” reported that the White house tried unsuccessfully to prevent the release of the memoirs of a former adviser to trump national security John Bolton.
