Trump’s tough words for Merkel and May raise questions about his relationships with female leaders - The Washington Post

The barrages aimed at British Prime Minister Theresa May and German Chancellor Angela Merkel prompted diplomats on both sides of the Atlantic to ask why a president who prizes his “great chemistry” with world leaders seems to go out of his way to damage two powerful female allies.
But other analysts noted that the two female leaders had been less willing than others, such as French President Emmanuel Macron or Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, to cater to his ego. “I think it is much more about their approach to him,” said Danielle Pletka, the vice president for foreign policy at the conservative American Enterprise Institute. “Both of them have been confrontational toward him, and that’s not a good way to manage Donald Trump in my opinion.”

Then there was a third explanation touted by several European diplomats over the past week: their gender. Trump has been particularly quick to praise self-styled strongmen, from North Korea leader Kim Jong Un to Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte to Russian President Vladi*mir Putin, who he is slated to meet Monday in Helsinki.

“Everyone noted that Trump has been particularly harsh to the two female world leaders,” said one European official.

Added a second European official: “He has been more and more anti-E.U. He doesn’t care about allies. But he particularly has a problem with Merkel and May — who are women.”

The officials, like other former and current European and U.S. officials interviewed for this report, spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe candidly the president’s interactions with Merkel and May.

Just more typical class warfare from left wingers. They always have to bring race or gender into every ******n argument. Nothing to see here.
Race or gender has absolutely nothing to do with "class warfare", sometimes referred to as "class struggle". It is a conflict between people of the same community who represent different socioeconomic status and positions that reflect opposing interests. This can also be defined as the struggle for political and economic power carried on between capitalists and workers.
