Yet another Trump screw up
Quote | Reply
Spicer holds a press conference in which he adopts the outpourings of someone on Fox News to the effect that Obama didn't use the CIA, the NSA the FBI or any other US agency to bug Trump. Because he didn't want US fingerprints on it. So he used the UK's listening agency: GCHQ.

Entirely without precedent GCHQ shoots back publicly that on this, Trump is "utterly ridiculous" and "ought to be ignored". Quite punchy.

Next?

The White House formally apologises: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/...es-gchq-wiretapping/

How is this the right way to deal with anything? I've watched baristas argue over who screwed up my coffee order with more dignity than this.

Is trump actively trying to push away even the most stalwart US friends and allies?

One step forward (An apology for some wrong-doing), and two steps back (Trump using VERY inflammatory language in a tweet - inciting potentially serious conflict in SE Asia).

That Trump tweet from a few minutes ago, is pretty scary when you consider that serious international conflicts have been started by far less inflammatory things.

Is this level of international brinkmanship helpful/hurtful?

Hasn't that basically been our position for years?

We know what international leaders are saying and the way they are acting in public - they are being all nice & diplomatic with Trump, but what are they REALLY saying, in private, behind closed doors?
