Trump says Trump is the only one that matters

Narcissism plus total incompetence plus grotesque overconfidence=what could go wrong?

President Trump says: “I’m the only one that matters” in setting U.S. foreign policy, thus downplaying the importance of high-level jobs such as the assistant secretary of state, which is currently vacant.

“Let me tell you, the one that matters is me,” Trump said in an interview that aired on Fox News on Thursday night. “I’m the only one that matters, because when it comes to it, that’s what the policy is going to be. You’ve seen that, you’ve seen it strongly.”

He was talking to some fool on Fox News, in his 700th interview with Fox News, which he advertised on his deranged Twitter, intermixed with 700 other deranged tweets about “Pocahontas” and “Crooked Hillary” and Comey and godknowswhat.

Trump said, “So, we don’t need all the people that they want. You know, don’t forget, I’m a businessperson. I tell my people, ‘Where you don’t need to fill slots, don’t fill them.’ But we have some people that I’m not happy with their thinking process.”

Yeah, don’t forget, he’s a businessperson, with no knowledge or understanding whatsoever of government and public service and diplomacy and working for the greater good. All he knows is Munnee, gett moar munnneee, fire all the peepul and put their munnneee in your pokkkket.

For months, Trump’s administration has been criticized over budget cuts to the State Department and its pace of nominations for high-profile ambassadorships in Asia and the Middle East.

As NPR’s Michele Kelemen reported in September, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson “has raised a lot of eyebrows, maintaining a hiring freeze long after it was lifted for the rest of the federal government. Secretary Tillerson has also hired outside consulting groups.”

For Trump, the approach extends beyond the State Department. His recent remarks echo what he said in October, when he told Forbes, “I’m generally not going to make a lot of the appointments that would normally be — because you don’t need them.”

He has no idea that “you don’t need them” because he has no understanding of what any of it is for in the first place. He just assumes that “you don’t need them” because the crude money-saving angle is all he can grasp with his tiny shrinking defective brain. “Lookame, mommy, I’m saving the kuntree monneee.”
