Australian broadcaster’s scathing anti-Trump G-20 report goes viral

An Australian journalist tore into President Trump in a blistering critique during a report on the G-20 summit on Saturday that was quickly going viral in the U.S. and globally.

Chris Uhlmann, the political editor at the government-funded Australian Broadcasting Corporation, called Trump an “uneasy, lonely, awkward figure” who had “no desire and no capacity to lead the world” in a two-minute report from the streets of Hamburg after the summit wrapped up.

He specifically criticized Trump for the president’s opposition to the Paris climate deal — saying the U.S. “was left isolated and friendless” — and for not leading a statement condemning North Korea’s recent missile test.

Uhlmann is known in Australia for being a right-wing commentator, according to Philly.com.

His commentary racked up attention on social media, turning heads among Australians and Americans.
