Popular vote loser Donald Trump just went to the G7 summit and made a complete fool of himself. Of course, he was already a complete fool, so it was actually quite an accomplishment.
Not only did he insult and offend numerous close American allies, he pretty much proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is nothing but a puppet for Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Biran Krassenstein points out:
“The President of the United States just tweeted out an attack on NATO. The one Organization that Stands in the Way of Putin, Trump just attacked. If there was any question that Trump is a Putin puppet, there is no more.”
This is the attack that Brian Krassentstein is referring to by Trump…
“Fair Trade is now to be called Fool Trade if it is not Reciprocal. According to a Canada release, they make almost 100 Billion Dollars in Trade with U.S. (guess they were bragging and got caught!). Minimum is 17B. Tax Dairy from us at 270%. Then Justin acts hurt when called out!”
“Why should I, as President of the United States, allow countries to continue to make Massive Trade Surpluses, as they have for decades, while our Farmers, Workers & Taxpayers have such a big and unfair price to pay? Not fair to the PEOPLE of America! $800 Billion Trade Deficit. And add to that the fact that the U.S. pays close to the entire cost of NATO-protecting many of these same countries that rip us off on Trade (they pay only a fraction of the cost-and laugh!). The European Union had a $151 Billion Surplus-should pay much more for Military! Germany pays 1% (slowly) of GDP towards NATO, while we pay 4% of a MUCH larger GDP. Does anybody believe that makes sense? We protect Europe (which is good) at great financial loss, and then get unfairly clobbered on Trade. Change is coming!”
It is entirely possible, maybe even undeniable, that there has never been a Presidential administration with less of a clue about what they’re doing. The damage Trump and his ineptitude are doing to our country, especially in the area of foreign relations, may take decades to undo.
