Donald Trump has made so many blunders in his very short stint at the helm of the world’s most powerful country that it’s hard to keep up.
The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed US foreign policy expert Brookes Spector.
Spector discussed Trump’s five biggest blunders so far, and what they mean:
Hubris related transferring of business sense to governing.
Tossing staff under a bus.
The Dunning-Kruger Effect (A cognitive bias wherein people with low ability suffer from illusory superiority. I.e. he doesn’t know what he doesn’t know.)
Family comes first.
- Unthinking Russophilia (admiration of Russia or Russian culture)
