Trump called Nepal 'nipple' during briefing with Modi

White House staff offered discounts at Trump's NJ golf club report

Politico reported that the idea to provide discounts to aides originated with the president and his daughter, Ivanka TrumpIvana (Ivanka) Marie TrumpDan Rather: Trump is intentionally being "divisive" with "all types of racism" tweet Ivanka Trump condemns white nationalist rallies: There is no place for neo-Nazism in US A paid leave plan can not make you choose between kids or retirement MORE.

Several times in the first year of his administration, President Trump wanted to call Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in the middle of the afternoon.

More problems, previously kept quiet until now, apparently abound, including the fact that Trump was unaware that nations like Nepal and Bhutan even existed. He would want to call world leaders at all hours and not remember, understand, or care that it might have been the middle of the night for that person. While studying a map of South Asia to prepare for the meeting, he reportedly called Nepal "nipple" and Bhutan "button".

"He was like, 'What is this stuff in between and these other countries?'"

A former national security official told Politico that Trump wants to talk to Macron "constantly", sometimes calling him for no particular reason.

"'We are from India'", said Trump, impersonating the response.

Ahead of the meeting a year ago with Modi at the White House, Trump allegedly studied a map of South Asia and mispronounced Nepal as "nipple" and referred to Bhutan as "button", Politico said, quoting two unnamed sources.

"It does have an effect on how Trump tries to secure personal loyalty and woo people away from what should be their primary and their only loyalty - to the Constitution, to public service and to the people of the United States", he said.

The report refutes the idea that the president is unaware of how time zones work - rather, the notion implied by the White House is that Mr. Trump doesn't like to wait to share his thoughts on global developments with the involved parties.

The president also reportedly "randomly" calls other world leaders without specific topics to discuss, leaving them confused as to why he reached out. "You don't just call to check in", the former security official said.

"These are very busy people".

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders declined to comment to Politico about the discount. "Foreign leaders appreciate that the President is willing to take their calls day and night".
