Obama: World leaders 'rattled' by Trump

World leaders are “rattled” by Donald Trump’s rise, President Barack Obama said here at the G-7 summit, but he remains confident the Republican nominee will lose in November despite the growing turmoil in his own party.
Obama, speaking during a small news conference arranged during a break from meetings with his counterparts, said the tenor of the 2016 race is still shocking his counterparts in other top world powers.

“I think it’s fair to say they are surprised by the Republican nominee, they are not sure how seriously to take some of his pronouncements, but they’re rattled by him, and for good reason,” Obama said. “A lot of the proposals that he’s made display either ignorance of world affairs or a cavalier attitude or an interest in getting tweets and headlines instead of actually thinking through what it is that’s required to keep America safe, secure and prosperous, and what’s required to keep the world on an even keel.”
