CNN Host LOL's At Surrogate For Claiming Trump Would Command Respect

Jason Miller made the audacious claim that foreign leaders would never insult Trump as they have President Obama.

The most amazing part of this is that Jason Miller said it with a straight face, too.

Donald Trump spokesman Jason Miller on Wednesday repeatedly insisted that no foreign leader will insult Trump if he is elected president, arguing that the GOP nominee will quickly command respect.

CNN's Alisyn Camerota noted that Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte has insulted President Obama and asked Miller, "What would Donald Trump do if a president insulted him?"

"Well, they're not going to insult Mr. Trump the same way they have insulted President Obama," Miller replied.

Camerota pressed Miller, asking, "You think that if Donald Trump were president all of that would go away, no foreign leaders would ever insult the U.S. president?"

"I think what you're going to see is we're going to get back to winning again and that's with Mr. Trump in the presidency. He's going to be someone who these foreign leaders will respect," Miller responded.

A recent poll by Pew Research Center showed a distinct lack of confidence in Trump as leader of the free world, often polling in the single digits. For much of the world, Trump's candidacy in getting this close to the presidency is looked upon as a sick joke.

Confidence in Hillary Clinton

UPDATE: This tweet from one of the Saudi Royal family, and one of the richest men in the world, was dismissive of Trump and his chances.
