One of Donald Trump’s biggest foes is after him again – with an astonishing claim that the president was “obsessed” with the breasts of a translator during the recent visit of the Japanese prime minister.

Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter makes the claims in the latest edition of his glossy magazine.

Carter accuses Trump of making inappropriate comments about a young woman working as a translator for Shinzo Abe during his visit to the US last month.

Carter writes “the president told an acquaintance that he was obsessed with the translator’s breasts – although he expressed this in his own, fragrant fashion.”

The unnamed woman played a central part during what turned out to be an eventful visit.

At the same the Japanese leader was in the US, North Korea carried out a missile test and the leaders gave an impromptu press conference while they were at the Trump-owned Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

The woman who allegedly caught President Trump’s eye was pictured flashing a light on documents being read by the Japanese delegation at the table that night.

This prompted some to question the security arrangements at Mar-a-Lago.

Carter writes: “Trump may be a joke, but the chaos and destructive forces around him are not. If he can cause this much havoc during his first few months in office, imagine what the country and the world will look like at the end of four years.”

It is the first time the Vanity Fair editor met Trump just before the president’s inauguration.

But it looks like there is little love lost between the pair.

Trump recently tweeted: “Has anyone looked at the really poor numbers of @VanityFair Magazine. Way down, big trouble, dead! Graydon Carter, no talent, will be out!”
