The Donald, fresh off the NATO summit and on his way to an historic meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, dealt with the NATO freeloaders like a boss, declaring, “Raise military spending now, or, I’ll do my own thing…” That apparently put the fear of God into Angela Merkel and others, who still have meager levels of defense spending, with no intention to raise it anytime soon, hoping The Donald will just go away.
Trump is having none of it.
It has been reported that Germany has just a handful of combat jets that can actually fly. This week saw press reports alleging Germany is resorting to using broomsticks to train infantry due to a lack of weapons. All the while, Merkel is sending billions of dollars to Russia, the country NATO is supposed to be defending against, sucking off the tit of cheap Russian gas production.
How do you think Vlad perceives NATO as a credible adversary under this circumstance?
This situation metasticizes while Europe continues to block our imports with high tariffs, all the while, enjoying our defense umbrella, and funding their generous welfare state.
It’s all about the money, honey; it is obviously not about security.
And it really is ridiculous.
Think about how far POTUS has come in regards to building a stable world peace. There are no more rockets being flown over Japan. American hostages have been released. There are steel factories going up in Pennsylvania. There is a strong response to Russia in Europe, and will get stronger. Iran is being marginalized, which could help solve the Palestinian crisis, enhance Israeli security, and halt nuclear proliferation.
It really is amazing what this man has done in a few short months. Think what he can do over eight years!
However, Trump is only one man. He can only do so much. It is up to the rest of American patriots to get more involved and fix our great country after eight years of devastating Obama rule. Get involved in your schools, support real conservative candidates, and support the new media coming online to get the world out about what is really going on in the United States and the world.
It is a great time to be an American. It is a great time to be alive. #MAGA
