Trump fury: US General calls Melania Trump smarter than US President Donald Trump | World | News

This comment, from General John Hyten, was allegedly made at a dinner in 2017. According to the Washington Post he said: “The president is an idiot.” Retired Col. Kathy Spletstoser, who also attended the dinner in 2017, shared notes she took.

It is reported the General said about Trump: “He is just a businessman without the basic understanding of national security. 

“Everything is a business transaction for him and making money is winning to him and the only thing that matters.”

General Hyten did not comment to the Post about the reports.

A White House official told the paper: “We are unfamiliar with any conversation like this.

“Discussions like this would not be had casually around a dinner table.”

The paper reports General Hyten, who is now 60, believed the First Lady, Melania Trump, was a much more switched on an individual than President Trump.

In particular, the General reportedly said that Mrs Trump has a better understanding of the military operations than her husband, the President.

“She was more inquisitive and smarter than the president.”

Recently, Donald Trump’s former National Security Advisor John Bolton released a book criticising President Trump’s record.

He accused Trump, 74, of “buddying up to autocratic world leaders such as North Korea’s Kim Jong Un and Russian President Vladimir Putin”.
