Trump is either Mad or Bad but probably both.

There has been constant jokes about the intelligence of US Presidents such as this

Q: What's the difference between George W Bush and an average student? 

A: An Average student can't find Iraq on a Map, George W can get out of Iraq

But the current incumbent  of the White House must surley  e the dumbest ever to sit in the Oval Office .

On Wednesday Trump continued to defend his decision to withdraw US troops from northeastern Syria, abandoning Kurdish forces in the region, by saying the Kurds did not help the US during World War II.
"They didn't help us in the Second World War; they didn't help us with Normandy," Trump said of the Kurds, who played a vital role in the US-led campaign against ISIS.
And when asked by reporters whether he felt the Syria retreat and treatment of the Kurds sent a poor message to other potential US allies, Trump said, "Alliances are very easy."
Trump's comments came hours after Turkey launched a military operation against the formerly US-backed Kurdish forces in Syria. 

This came amid reports that Turkish ground troops were crossing the border into Syria after air strikes that began earlier in the day.
"They didn't help us in the Second World War; they didn't help us with Normandy," Trump said of the Kurds. He added, "With all of that being said, we like the Kurds." The Kurdistan region, which stretches across the borders of Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Iran, and Armenia, is roughly 4,000 kilometres (2,500 miles) from Normandy, France. The Kurds are a distinct ethnic group — with an estimated population between 25 to 35 million  — that have never had a permanent or official nation state.
Experts CNN spoke with said that since the Kurds were not (and still are not) a nation state, there would be no way for them to enter the war. However, because some Kurds migrated to the Soviet Union following the First World War and the fall of the Ottoman Empire, individual Kurds may have fought with the Soviets against the Axis, as noted by The New York Times

The move has been broadly condemned in Washington, including by top congressional Republicans and former Trump administration officials, as many feel Trump paved the way for Turkey to go after key US allies. 
The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) bore the brunt of the US-led campaign against ISIS, losing about 11,000 fighters in the process.
Ahead of the Trump administration's announcement, Kurdish forces had recently dismantled defensive positions along the Turkey-Syria border under assurances from the US it would not allow a Turkish assault. The SDF described Trump's decision to withdraw troops as a "stab in the back" and made clear it felt betrayed by the US. 
Here in Cymru we often mock those who claim that Bilingual Road Signs cause accidents but surley Donald Trump also  appearing  to defend an American woman suspected of being involved in the death of Harry Dunn by saying wrong-way driving ‘happens’ is sick.
The President had been asked by Boris Johnson to reconsider granting immunity to the woman and allow British police to pursue the young motorcyclist's death in an earlier telephone conversation.
When asked about the diplomatic immunity row by reporters, Trump called the incident a "terrible accident" but suggested driving on the opposite side of road was confusing - saying "it happens”.

"The woman was driving on the wrong side of the road, and that can happen. You know, those are the opposite roads, that happens," he said.
"I won't say it ever happened to me, but it did.
"When you get used to driving on our system and then you're all of a sudden on the other system where you're driving - it happens. You have to be careful, very careful.”
The suspect, 42-year-old Anne Sacoolas, who is reportedly married to a US intelligence official, was granted diplomatic immunity following the crash.
The car was thought to have been driving on the wrong side of the road after leaving RAF Croughton in Northamptonshire - a military base used by the US Air Force.

So it was the UK fault this young man died because we drive on a different side of the  road?

After Brexit the so called patriots  who claim they were regaining UK sovereignty   from Europe will hand lock, stock and barrel to the USA and a president who believes that a tragic accident is the fault of ourselves.
