AMMANN, JORDAN – In an exclusive interview, King Abdullah II has told a solitary reporter that if Donald Trump is elected president, he will recall his ambassador to the United States and then break off diplomatic relations with the US.
Our associate solitary reporter, Lewis Thompson, had a similar encounter in Cairo with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi.
Both King Abdullah and President el-Sisi were well aware that one of the Middle East’s largest retailers, Landmark Group, based in Dubai, has stopped selling Trump-branded products, following the GOP presidential wannabe’s call to ban Muslims from the United States. Landmark signed a deal in February to sell items from the Trump Home collection to customers in the UAE, Kuwait, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia through its Lifestyle outlets. But yesterday the group said that it would now remove all products from its shelves. http://www.dailykos.com/story/2015/12/08/1458247/-Dubai-Retail-Giant-Dumps-Trump?detail=email.
Trump is maintaining his lead in the polls, with Ted Cruz now his nearest competitor.
Our moles in the State Department and in the Pentagon tell us that with Jordan and Egypt unwilling to have anything to do with Trump, the US will be up a well-known creek without a paddle.
Trump’s campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, told Thompson that his favorite book in the Bible is the Book of Revelation.
