President Donald Trump reportedly asks his staff to portray him as 'crazy' when they negotiate with foreign countries according to Axios. Trump coached his top trade negotiator, Robert Lighthizer, that he should be portrayed as 'crazy'
Trump*: You've got 30 days, and if you don't get concessions then I'm pulling out."*
Lighthizer*: "Ok, well I'll tell the Koreans they've got 30 days."*
Trump*: No, no, no," Trump interjected. "That's not how you negotiate. You don't tell them they've got 30 days. You tell them, 'This guy's so crazy he could pull out any minute. That's what you tell them: Any minute," Trump continued. "And by the way, I might. You guys all need to know I might. You don't tell them 30 days. If they take 30 days they'll stretch this out."*
