A narcissistic bully will face nationalist leaders just as dangerous. Prepare for a direct clash with China.


Can you explain to me the exact meaning of the first part of the above excerpt. Does it mean that a "narcissistic bully" (D. Trump) will in the next future clash with the similar class of politicians ("nationalists") that are as dangerous as him. I am not sure to which part "as dangerous" is connected.

    just as dangerous complements leaders. ...leaders (who are) just as dangerous (as the narcissistic bully is dangerous). Jan 21, 2017 at 14:56

The passage is calling Trump a narcissistic bully, and goes on to say that he (a self-confessed nationalist leader with his "America First" address to the nation) is going to face others just like him, including [the leaders of] China.

Read it as:

... [he] will face nationalistic leaders [who are] just like him.
