CNN: Obama also criticized Trump’s treatment of the Gold Star family, adding that his “basic knowledge of critical issues in Europe, the Middle East, in Asia, means that he’s woefully unprepared to do this job.”

I don’t think that assessment of Trump is correct, and there’s clearly a serious knowledge deficit with Obama, but as discussed here, even if it were, it didn’t stop Bush:

Bush Fails Quiz on Foreign Affairs

AP/Thursday, Nov. 4, 1999; 6:10 p.m. EST

WASHINGTON –– Texas Gov. George W. Bush was hit with a surprise quiz on foreign affairs and scored only 25 percent.

The Republican presidential front-runner sat down Wednesday with WHDH-TV, the NBC affiliate in Boston, and was asked to name the leaders of four current world hot spots: Chechnya, Taiwan, India and Pakistan.

He was able to give a partial response to just one: Taiwan.

That drew immediate criticism from the camp of Democrat Al Gore, which said the vice president could have answered all four correctly.

“I guess we know that ‘C’ at Yale was a gentleman’s ‘C,'” said Gore spokesman Chris Lehane, referring to the way Bush has described his academic record.

The Bush campaign brushed off the incident.

“The person who is running for president is seeking to be the leader of the free world, not a Jeopardy contestant,” said Karen Hughes, Bush communications director.

What’s the difference between Bush and Trump ?

Trump, whatever his flaws, clearly poses a considerable threat to the failed order, Bush was merely a servant for that order, so it didn’t matter.
