It is no longer surprising that Donald Trump knows very little about international affairs. But somehow he still manages to surprise the entire global population by showing how little he knows about politics. 

I think that the United States image has never been so badly damaged ever before. Within less than first 100 days in power, he already made the world to laugh out loud and cry at the same time many times over.  And knowing that Trump is not planning to get a bit smarter anytime soon, we shall be ready for lots of entertaining news to come.
