Susan Rice Accuses Trump of ‘Treating Our Allies like Trash’

Susan Rice, the former National Security Advisor to Obama, appeared on Wednesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports.” She accused the president of treating our allies “like trash.”

Host Andrea Mitchell asked Rice, “He demanded that Russia, China, the European allies get out of the nuclear weapon deal themselves. What leverage does the president have with Germany, France, the U.K., Russia and China right now?”

Rice replied, “None.”

Mitchell then prompted, “Because?”

Rice continued, “We are the ones who withdrew from the deal. We are the ones who have precipitated this cycle of escalation, unfortunately. And we treat our allies under President Trump like trash.”

She added, “We don’t give them even a heads-up when we’re about to take dangerous action that put their personnel directly at risk. We don’t consult. We don’t concert our efforts. And so why should they simply follow along like sheepish puppies just because President Trump finds himself in a bind and has to give a speech.”
