Gerard Araud, America’s departing French ambassador, did not mince his words when describing American President Donald Trump in his exit interview.
Araud, a career diplomat who has held some of the most important jobs in French diplomacy over the last 37 years, said that Trump is single-handedly responsible for isolating the United States on the world stage. In his last interview before he departs office on Friday, Araud described Trump as a “big mouth” who does not ever read, reports The Guardian.
“When they say ‘America first’, it’s America alone.
Basically, this president and this administration don’t have allies, don’t have friends. It’s really [about] bilateral relationships on the basis of the balance of power and the defense of narrow American interest.”
