He alleged that in hundreds of highly classified phone calls with foreign heads of state, Trump was so abusive to American allies that the calls convinced senior U.S. officials the President posed a national security risk.

Bernstein also reported that several of Trump's top cabinet officials who have since become publicly critical of the president, including national security advisers H.R. McMaster and John Bolton, Defense Secretary James Mattis, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and White House chief of staff John Kelly, concluded that Trump was often "delusional" when dealing with foreign leaders.

As a resurgent coronavirus rips through America, tearing especially into states that voted for Donald Trump in 2016, Joe Biden is moving to further weaken the president's hold by stepping up attacks on his handling of the crisis.

Carl Bernstein has reported to CNN how Trump verbally abuses world leaders in private phone calls. When it came to dealing with women foreign leaders, like U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Bernstein said his sources characterized Trump's behavior as "near sadistic".

"He's toughest [in the phone calls] with those he looks at as weaklings and weakest with the ones he ought to be tough with", a source told CNN.

Though extraordinary measures were taken in response to Trump's conversations with Merkel, the German chancellor took the U.S. president's comments "like water off a duck's back", a source told CNN, and she responded to his disparaging remarks by stating facts.

"But May was taken aback by Trump's hostile tone and would get "flustered and nervous" when Trump attacked her", according to a source.

A source told the outlet that Trump subjected French President Emmanuel Macron to lectures and verbal "whippings" on issues like trade, immigration, and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

In 2017, after the deadly rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, the president notably said there were "very fine people on both sides" of the altercation that included both white supremacists and anti-racist protestors.

Some of the harshest depictions of Trump's lack of preparedness on critical issues stem from his conversations with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Just last month, Trump again dismissed the 2016 election interference by Russian Federation as a "hoax" during a phone call with Putin.

During a press briefing Monday, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany confirmed that the President did not hear the "white power" phrase when he tweeted out the video.
