Referring to the press conference, he said: "That's classic narcissism - that's aggrievement and victimhood. Real leaders don't really care about stuff like that.

"You're the leader of the free world, the President of the United States, you've been bestowed this public trust, you're in the highest position of public service.

"And you're acting like a full-blown, full-on maniac idiot. I thought it was very weird and perverse.

"It was like a full Benito Mussolini display from the American White House. I'm saddened when I watch him."
