I begin to think that possibly by making nonesense statements with out-of-this-world consistency, Donald Trump is attempting to let us all know that he is intellectually and mentally incapacitated. Otherwise, how to explain that every time he opens his mouth, instead of linguistically mature sentences he burps enormous amount of verbal diarrhea .
South Korea’s government wants to know whether Chinese President Xi Jinping gave alternative facts on the nation’s history to Donald Trump.
In an interview with the Wall Street Journal last week, Trump said Xi told him during a recent summit that “Korea actually used to be a part of China.” The comments sparked outrage in Seoul and became an issue in South Korea’s presidential race, prompting the foreign ministry to seek to verify what Xi actually said.
“It’s a clear fact acknowledged by the international community that, for thousands of years in history, Korea has never been part of China,” foreign ministry spokesman Cho June-hyuck said at a briefing in Seoul on Thursday.
Trump has sought to get China — North Korea’s main ally and benefactor — to do more to persuade dictator Kim Jong Un to stop conducting nuclear and missile tests. Xi’s explanation of the historical relationship made Trump realize that it’s “not so easy” for China to influence North Korea to give up its nuclear program, the newspaper quoted the U.S. president as saying.
Candidates for South Korea’s May 9 presidential election weighed in on the issue, which comes as the nation’s relations with China are already strained over moves to deploy a U.S. missile defense system on its soil.
“This is clearly a distortion of history and an invasion of the Republic of Korea’s sovereignty,” conservative Liberty Korea Party candidate Hong Joon-pyo said through a spokesman.
A representative for Democratic Party of Korea candidate Moon Jae-in demanded to find out the full context of Xi’s comment. Ahn Cheol-soo’s People’s Party said that, if true, it would be regrettable for China to distort history in an international diplomacy setting.
Chinese dynasties invaded the Korean Peninsula repeatedly over the centuries and demanded tributes, but South Koreans reject the idea that their ancestors were ever ruled by their neighbour. Visit Bloomberg to read more.
If Donald Trump is not mentally incapacitated, it is possible that he is just intellectually undeveloped.
It is also possible that by being highly experienced politician, Xi Jinping has carefully studed Trump’s detailed profile and was well informed about Trump’s specifics by the time of his arrival to the U.S.
He might or might not have said that Korea was part of China. But if he did, it is important to know in what context he said it.
Xi could have mentioned it as part of a joke. Or it could have been mentioned intentionally with hope that, sooner or later, Trump will confirm to the entire world once again that he is real Donald Trump. Theoretically, there are a couple of options for such motive that may be substantiated from logical point of view.
We may never know what has actually happened. But what we know for sure is something which was known since the day he made a decision to participate in the presidential race. Donald Trump doesn’t fit to be the president of the United States simply because he does not have the required verbal filter and mental capacity.
