Trump's NATO, EU comments spark fury, fear across Europe

Tuesday, January 17, 2017 | Tag Cloud Tags: , , ,

(Worthy News) - Europe’s leading powers responded with alarm and anger Monday to President-elect Donald Trump’s comments published over the weekend that NATO is obsolete and that NATO’s European members are failing to pay their fair share to the alliance’s budget.

Mr. Trump also attacked as “catastrophic” German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s open-door immigration policies, suggesting they have left her nation vulnerable to terrorism. He praised Britain’s vote to leave the European Union and criticized the EU as a vehicle for Berlin to dominate the continent. At one point, Mr. Trump said he was unsure whether Ms. Merkel or Russian President Vladimir Putin was more trustworthy as a leader.

The interview, which also reprised many of Mr. Trump’s comments on trade and the need to shake up the Washington status quo, was the latest example of the Republican president-elect’s ability to shake up long-standing U.S. relationships — even with his inauguration four days away. [ Source ]

  1. Fear is the opposite of Faith, Europeans have operated out of fear for so long until anything new and refreshing is perceived to be dangerous to them. NATO is a frat nothing else.

  2. Entries soared in a single day as athletes realized they
    might feel a way of accomplishment - it's 70.3 freakin' miles, in any case - without endeavor the life-consuming training and expense of a full one hundred forty.6-mile
    Ironman.

  3. This could be very prophetic. NATO could dissolve, with a Euro-Army inevitably arising to fill the vacuum, which would be a major step towards the Anti-Christ’s kingdom having a ready-made army. Most of the EU members have been training and fighting with American forces for some time, since George Bush invaded Afghanistan and Iraq. The combined training continued under Obama, so making a transition would be fairly easy for the Europeans.
