Washington, DC, United States (4E) – Republican strategist Steve Schmidt slammed Donald Trump as an “imbecile” and an “incompetent” who doesn’t know what he’s talking about most of the time.
Schmidt is best known for strategic roles in Republican political campaigns, including those of George W. Bush and Sen. John McCain. He was senior campaign strategist and advisor in McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign.
“It’s patently obvious, when you watched the news conference yesterday, and you watched the president talking about the trilateral relationship with the Baltic Republics, he has no idea what he’s talking about,” said Schmidt.
“It’s the musings of an imbecile. Really. No idea what he’s talking about at any level. We talk about trade, and consider his blowing up NAFTA. One trillion dollars of trade flows across the North American border between the United States and Canada. Most successful trade relationship in the history of the world.”
Trump wants the U.S. to pull out of NAFTA even as administration officials work on an updated agreement with Canada and Mexico. Schmid warned that Trump’s actions could produce awful results for John Q. Public.
“You want to talk about crashing the market?” said Schmidt. “Abrogate the NAFTA agreement. Disrupt a trillion dollars in trade that flows freely across the longest the largest, longest, undefended, peaceful border in the history of the world and let’s see what happens. This is an incompetent president. Has no idea what he’s doing. No idea what he’s talking about. And the consequences of incompetent actions will be paid for by the American people and we’re starting to see that now.”
