Can you name the other 3 ambassadors &/or U.S. embassies tRump has hits out on?

True to the nature of his disorder, tRump can no more stop himself from projecting than he can stop himself from lying.

The inevitability of his projections has led to a little game my friends and I play where we take an accusation he's made and each of us submits what we think he's actually admitting to having done himself or is contemplating doing (projection). At whatever point someone's answer proves to be true, everyone else pitches in on lunch or drinks or mani-pedi for them, whatever we're doing together at the point the projection bears out.

It just so happens that our last meetup was the same day tRump claimed the Iranian general he had killed was supposedly targeting a U.S. embassy, so we created a projection question around that. Long story short, my buddy Ruby has won that round because she wrote down that he was projecting his "desire or maybe actual attempt to kill that woman ambassador who testified against him." After yesterday's news, we've unanimously agreed---winner, winner, chicken dinner coming up for Ruby.

But now, a new projection has to be considered: A day or two after tRump first brought up one embassy being targeted, he changed his story to FOUR embassies being targeted.

So, my question to smart DUers is this: Who or what is tRump projecting about with the add-on of 3 more embassies?

1. That is trump making up lies

After he said 1 embassy, he needed to muddy up the water to deflect.

He knew what he did to Yanaovitch. He knew it was real bad. So yes, claiming 1 embassy was going to be attacked was a way for him to deflect in his head the severity of his actions. By adding on more embassies it was his way of telling himself that what he did was nothing in comparison.

2. That sounds very plausible

It's a tricky business sorting through projection vs. lying.

3. Trump couldn't name three embassies if his life depended on it.
