US President Donald Trump's advisers refused to give him military advice, which frightened real conflicts with North Korea and Iran. This was announced by CNN journalist Jim Sciutto in his book вЂњThe Theory of the Madman: Trump Conquers the World,вЂќ the channel's website says.
Schiutto writes that Trump's relationship with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has always been tense, but in 2017 they escalated dramatically, and then real fear arose among the staff of the US presidential administration. вЂњWe used to think that Kim Jong-un is unpredictable. Now Trump has become unpredictable in our country, вЂќsaid Joseph Yun, the former presidential envoy for DPRK affairs.
Also, the CNN journalist reported that in 2019, the advisers of the American leader spoke to their partners in the Middle East about the impossibility of predicting Trump's actions. As former Assistant Secretary of Defense Mick Mulroy said, the president could have made a decision that would have led to an escalation of the conflict in the region. вЂњTherefore, we conveyed to Iran that even the presidential advisers do not know what, for example, TehranвЂ™s attack on another oil facility will lead to,вЂќ he said.
Madman's Theory: Trump Conquers the World is due out on August 11th.
