The reason was the fact that European countries sent less Russian diplomats.
The President of the United States Donald trump is pissed that a European country has sent less Russian diplomats in response to the poisoning of ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter than the United States. This is with reference to the sources reports The Washington Post.
Donald trump has insisted that the United States did not play a leading role in the coordinated response to the poisoning Skrobala. He wanted the number deported from the United States of Russian diplomats was in proportion to the number sent to Europe.
“We compare figures. We will not take the lead. We only compare numbers”, these are the instructions given trump, according to a senior member of his administration.
The next day it was publicly announced the expulsion of Russian diplomats, trump “exploded”. He was shocked and disappointed that France and Germany receive only four diplomat – far less than the 60 sent to the US.
As noted, the US President, who seems to expect that other countries will receive the same number of diplomats were enraged by his administration in the media looked like who took the toughest stance toward Russia.
Assistants trump tried to convince him that the total number of European countries sent diplomats almost the same as the number deported from the United States.
“I don’t care about the total number!” – raged trump.
He blamed his assistants in that they allegedly were tricked concerning the extent of expulsions of diplomats. As noted, at the same time sounded a large number of swear words.
