The first one is the president’s ignorance. That goes to the point of thinking that Nepal and Bhutan – which incidentally he also mispronounced a ‘nipple’ and ‘button’ – are part of , which they’re not,’ Walcott told CNN’s Brooke Baldwin. Baldwin was visibly shocked and replied: ‘Wait, seriously? That’s what he said?’  ‘Seriously,’ Walcott replied.  Walcott was on CNN to discuss an article he wrote for Time published over the weekend, in which he alleges that sources in the intelligence community consider Trump a risk to national security because he exhibits a ‘wilful ignorance’ on international affairs.’When he’s briefed on something that doesn’t square with his policy views or his personal views, he simply rejects it and goes his own way, and we’ve heard that time and time again,’ Walcott said. ‘When he was briefed on the little Indian Ocean atoll of Diego Garcia – which is home to a very important military installation – in preparation for a meeting with Prime Minister May of Great Britain, he only had two questions.”The first one was: “Are the people there nice?” and the second one was: “Are the beaches good?”‘  Share this article Share According to Walcott, Trump displays a ‘lack of curiosity about the world which is different from other presidents’.    Baldwin then asked what the consequences would be for the country if its president refused to listen to his advisors.’The real underlying concern is what might happen if the nation is suddenly hit with a real national security crisis out of the blue,’ Walcott told her. ‘How will the president respond? Will Trump stop and listen and think about that response first – or again, will he simply react on instinct?’
