A great quote from the book “Trump: The Divider in Chief” (by Susan Glasser and Peter Baker)
This quote from the book was read during a Skullduggery podcast:
He [Trump] didn’t know anything about anything. He did not know Puerto Rico was part of the US. He did know if Columbia was in North or South America. Thought Finland was part of Russia. Mixed up the Baltics w/the Balkans. Was confused about how WWI started. Did not understand the basics of America’s vast nuclear arsenal. Did not grasp the concept of the US gov’s separation of powers. Did not understand how courts worked. “How do I declare war” he asked at one point to the alarm of his staff who realized that he was unaware that the constitution proscribes that role for congress.”
After reading this, one of the podcast’s hosts, Michael Isikoff observed,
It’s just staggering a guy who is essential an ignoramus was running the country for 4 years.
