US President Barack Obama has said that international leaders “have good reason to be rattled” by pronouncements made by the Republican White House contender, Donald Trump.
Speaking on the sidelines of the G7 summit in Japan, Mr Obama said Mr Trump had shown a cavalier and ignorant attitude towards world affairs.
Mr Obama said foreign leaders were surprised by his nomination. There has so far been no response from the billionaire businessman.
“They are not sure how seriously to take some of his pronouncements, but they’re rattled by him – and for good reason, because a lot of the proposals that he’s made display either ignorance of world affairs or a cavalier attitude,” the president said.
