Trump Ambassador Calls Former President a ‘D*ck’ And a ‘Narcissist’

Gordon Sondland and Donald Trump

Former U.S. ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland, who was appointed by Donald Trump in 2018, has described his former boss as a “dick” and a “narcissist” in a new book, according to The Guardian.

Sondland was fired in 2020 shortly after his testimony played a key role during Trump’s first impeachment, where he described Trump’s attempted quid pro quo: a White House visit for Zelenskiy and the release of military aid in return for investigations of targets including Joe and Hunter Biden.

In his forthcoming memoir, The Envoy: Mastering the Art of Diplomacy with Trump and the World, Sondland derides Trump’s narcissism and recalls telling Trump in 2016 that “you were kind of a dick to me when we first met.”

Trump responded that he didn’t think Sondland was important enough to be nice to, the former ambassador wrote, The Guardian reported, citing an excerpt from the book.

Sondland recounts anxiously trying to prepare Trump for a 2019 meeting with the president of Romania, only for Trump to be distracted by choosing which song to use as his walk-on music at an upcoming rally.

According to The Guardian, Sondland criticizes Mike Pompeo “for firing him over his impeachment testimony and allegedly reneging on a promise to pay his legal fees. Sondland also hits Pompeo for not inviting Volodymyr Zelenskiy, the president of Ukraine, to Washington but inviting the Russian foreign minister twice.”
