Trumpian friendship

Jun 2013
1. Speaking of his much-touted "very very great relationship and personal bond" with the Chinese leader over the 19 months since they first met, Donald Trump claimed, rather sarcastically, that both “will always be friends, no matter what happens with our dispute on trade.”

Woe betide anyone whom Trump claims as his “good friend”. Here I coin the term "Trumpian friendship" for such a bizarre "friendship" in which somebody touts you as his "good friend" on the one hand but stabs you in the back and front on the other. If you happen to be in the same boat with such a fellow as Trump in a storm, it is just a matter of time you will be thrown overboard.

2. According to an article by Daniel Bates on 4 June 2018 in reference to Kate Anderson Brower's book, narcissistic Trump will never miss a chance to have a dig at anyone even if you show your subservience to him. For instance, he mocks Mike Pence's piety behind his back. The book lifts the lid on the relationship between Trump and Pence and reveals the President asks visitors to the West Wing: “Did Mike make you pray?”

As well as mocking Pence's faith, Trump once sarcastically suggested he was his servant during a meeting in the Situation Room. Trump's former strategist Steve Bannon said that this was Trump's way of making “Pence know who's boss”. Such is the level of mockery by the President that one of Pence's friend's said she would not be surprised if Trump had nicknamed Pence “the deacon”.

In conclusion, just check the long list of notable members of both the White House and the Trump administration at large who have left their posts.‘my-friend’-xi
