Leadership in the West is crumbling, says former prime minister of Malaysia Dr Mahathir Mohamad, pointing to frayed relations within the European Union and the upcoming US elections.
Speaking live over Zoom at Nutanix's ASEAN CIO Virtual Summit, Mahathir criticised the US’ increasing isolationism, enacted under President Donald Trump.
“We see leadership quality in the West crumbling, almost. That is why we see they are in big trouble. The Europeans don't think they are the Europeans of before. They are now going back to the idea of their own nationalities,” said Mahathir.
