I don’t know about you but this liberal Trump-hating writer really cooked his own goose. Trying to make Trump look as bad as possible, he writes THIS PIECE I was cheering through as I read!
Merkel is a monster for Germany and now she admits that “(We) really must take our fate into our own hands.”; she’s nearly destroyed Germany already with the refugee situation so I hope she understands their fate is pretty gloomy already. She didn’t actually blame Trump, but she did say the last few days (G7 Meetings) were what convinced her of this, leading ALL the liberal media to love jumping to the conclusion that SHE said IT’S ALL TRUMP’S FAULT.
This writer says IT’S TRUMP’S FAULT:
It’s TRUMP’S FAULT Europe shouldn’t rely on America. (Finally!)
It’s TRUMP’S FAULT that Merkel is saying the EU needs to get stronger. (Good!)
It’s TRUMP’S FAULT that Merkel says NATO must fight its own battles. (Good!)
Here’s the author’s take on the trip: “Merkel’s comment about what she has experienced in the past few days is a clear reference to President Trump’s disastrous European tour.” Rubbish. Which trip was HE observing that makes him feel it was DISASTROUS?
And Merkel’s supposedlly upset, or this author is, about Trump and Article 5 and that he supposedly dissed it….“When Trump visited NATO, he dedicated a plaque to the one time that Article 5 has been invoked — when all members of NATO promised to come to the United States’ support after the terrorist attack on Sept. 11, 2001. However, Trump did not express his commitment to Article 5 in his speech to NATO, instead lambasting other NATO members for not spending enough money on their militaries.”
Remind me; HOW did Europe support us after 9/11? Candles and hugs? Putting in security measures that would help protect their own travel venues? Remind me. What support?
Ya, I’m thrilled Merkel feels Germany and all of Europe need to stand up for themselves …Trump has forced Germany and other European countries to STAND ON THEIR OWN.
HURRAH! Don’t you agree?
(By the way, the great thing is I’m not the only writer who saw it this way, though the author of the linked article was clearly trying to make Trump look horrid again. FOX’s Ed Henry said “Isn’t it about TIME Europe stood on its own”? YES!)
