President Trump treats other nations the way he treats his staff

That’s because he has no idea of leadership—he’s not a leader and wouldn’t recognize one. Leaders elicit (and depend on) cooperation from those they lead—by having people cooperate under the leader’s direction and vision, the efforts of many combine and synergize. But Trump doesn’t lead: he bullies and undercuts his subordinates and contradicts what they say and sets them at each other, all the while making them constantly demonstrate their loyalty to him (because he’s frightened to have anyone around who is not totally loyal to him—he lives in fear).

And Trump sees the US as himself, only bigger and with more detail, so he will treat the world the same way he treats his staff. And if you look at what he’s done and how he’s acting, it’s obvious. Russia now the favored one, and he’s punishing Germany. But then he’ll undercut Russia and praise Germany. Or whatever. Same game, larger scale.
