White House Aides Are Claiming Trump ‘Doesn’t Get’ Time Zones

New reports of President Donald Trump‘s behavior with other world leaders may be cause for concern

During the same briefing, Trump is said to have asked whether Modi would be bringing his wife along with him on the visit.

Trump, for example, had requested several times that his aides set up a phone call on the spot in the middle of the afternoon to Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

President Donald Trump allegedly joked he could play matchmaker for Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi after learning from aides that the 67-year-old Indian leader has always been estranged from his wife, according to a new report in Politico.

President Donald Trump reportedly has to be reminded of differences in time zones on a "constant basis" as he impulsively attempts to call other world leaders, a diplomatic source told Politico.

"When he wants to call someone, he wants to call someone".

"He reportedly pronounced Bhutan as "button" and Nepal as "nipple, ' a classic mix-up!"

"He wasn't great with recognizing that the leader of a country might be 80 or 85 years old and isn't going to be awake or in the right place at 10:30 or 11 P.M. their time. He thought it was all part of India", a former NSC staffer said. On Sunday, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told ABC News that NDAs are "typical" in offices and "we've all signed them in the West Wing", and Trump tweeted Monday: "Wacky Omarosa already has a fully signed Non-Disclosure Agreement!" 'He was like, "What is this stuff in between and these other countries?"

A White House official said that Trump's background as an global businessman means he does indeed know how time zones work, but he just doesn't care. He's more impulsive that way.

"The President has made clear that when leaders reach out for calls, [aides should] set them up right away", she continued.

But let's not kid ourselves here; having a basic understanding about world affairs comes in handy, especially when you're the president of the United States. He doesn't think about what time it is or who it is, ' the person said. Macron would be like: 'Hey what are we talking about?' These are very busy people.

Defending Trump, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said during an interaction with the press that the US President has developed "strong relationships" with "America's closest allies", which allow for "candid conversations". "Foreign leaders appreciate that the President is willing to take their calls day and night".
