Trump's anger -- his temper is even shorter than his fingers -- was inspired by criticism from the Conservative prime minister, who had called Trump's approach to Islamic extremism, including his proposed ban on Muslim travel to the United States, "divisive, stupid and wrong." Given Trump's reaction, Cameron's words apparently stung:
"Number one, I'm not stupid, OK? I can tell you that right now. Just the opposite. Number two, in terms of divisive, I don't think I'm a divisive person, I'm a unifier, unlike our president now, I'm a unifier."
Such a unifier. Trump's going to do so much unifying around the globe that you'll be sick of such unifying. In fact, as a demonstration of his abilities as a unifier, he has even offered to give the newly elected mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, a one-person exemption to his ban on travel to the United States by Muslims.
For some odd reason, though, Khan declined to be unified. He warned instead that Trump's “ignorant view of Islam could make both our countries less safe — it risks alienating mainstream Muslims around the world and plays into the hands of the extremists.... Daesh, ISIS, all those guys, hate the fact that I am mayor of London. Why? Because it contradicts what they say, which is that Western liberal values are incompatible with Islam.”
And Trump's response?
"I think they're very rude statements, and frankly, tell him that I will remember those statements ... very nasty statements." He even challenged Khan to an IQ test to see who is smarter.
The only foreign leader with whom Trump apparently has a good relationship is Vladimir Putin. Trump has made it clear that he admires Putin as a strong leader, even he is a little rough around the edges. As Trump puts it, "If he has killed reporters, I think that's terrible. But this isn't like somebody that's stood with a gun and he's, you know, taken the blame or he's admitted that he's killed. He's always denied it."
Vlad Putin: Unifier.
