Donald Trump’s Conversation With Nawaz Sharif ‘Ignorant’: US Media Report


WASHINGTON:  US President-elect Donald Trump’s “ignorant” conversation with Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif may send India an “unwelcome message”, a leading American magazine has said.

The Forbes magazine said that Donald Trump’s “flattering” conversation sends a message that he has no awareness of the issues between the US, Pakistan and India.

“His bluster is more likely to be taken as the initial signal of his Administration’s position. When he goes on and on about how wonderful Pakistan is, and how strong is his friendship, it matters. It matters that he uses words like: very good reputation, amazing work…fantastic country, fantastic place, fantastic people,” it said.

“One of the main messages it sends, is that he shows no awareness of the issues between the United States, Pakistan, and India,” it said.

Stating that Donald Trump is not aware about the ground realities in South Asia, it said, his “ignorant” conversation with Nawaz Sharif may send India an “unwelcome message”.
