President Donald Trump Arrives at the European Union Headquarters…

Like a boss.  The body language is hilarious.  The European and NATO leaders are sweating through their newly tailored Bironi suits as President Trump swaggers in to stare them directly in the eye.

.

President Trump, Mad Dog and T-Rex walk into town:

…Nice -new- fancy offices you have here.  Obviously with all this extra cash for fancy buildings you must have plenty of room to spend on your own NATO defense.

♦ The president will start his Thursday by meeting with EU leaders at the union’s headquarters before he meets with France’s President Macron at the U.S. Embassy.
♦ The remainder of the president’s day will be spent at NATO headquarters participating in ceremonies and discussing issues.
♦ The president and first lady will then head to Taormina, Italy ahead of the G7 conference to be held there.

    I KNOW President Trump pretty much was figuring the cost per square foot of that building and giving it the once over for design and structural flaws. LOL!

      He’s figuring out what it cost and determining that they are well able to pay for their own defense. An inordinately ostentatious and self-aggrandizing “monument”.

        I just hope our President kicks the ones who refuse to pay their 2% of GDP OUT! He’s been telling them to pay up ever since January 20th. Of course, we can’t save them from their own idiotic policies of inviting in people who want to kill them and take over their countries. Trump should make that plain, too.

          lady4trump, one nagging thought I have had over the passing months is those countries in the EU who have invited their invaders would allow that scum to springboard over to the US. In essence, dumping their problems on us. Certainly, that thought has occurred to President Trump as well.

    • I’m so glad President Trump once again brought up the fact that it’s not just the bare minimum of 2% GDP they must pay (23 out of 28 countries are not paying their fair share, that’s totally ridiculous!), it’s all the money they owe for not paying their fair share from previous years.

      The arrogance of these countries not paying their fair share and thinking they don’t have to because American taxpayers will pick the slack, ticks me off to no end.

    President Trump correctly understands that the US is the guarantor of the NATO charter and that the smaller member states have joined the alliance primarily to fall under the US defense umbrella.

    So if President Trump says 2% GDP on defense spending is a minimum, the members snap to and shout “yes sir” at the top of their lungs. They have no choice.

    This is why the members largely look so uncomfortable – if they want to be invited to the NATO party then they need to pay the door charge. The US taxpayers ain’t carrying their water any more.

      The Military of Montenegro (Montenegrin: Vojska Crne Gore) consists of an army, navy and air force. There has been no conscription in Montenegro; the military is a fully professional standing army.

      The military currently maintains a force of 1,950 active duty members. The bulk of its equipment and forces were inherited from the military of Serbia and Montenegro; as Montenegro contained the entire coastline of the former union, it retained practically the entire naval force.

        Considering that Montenegro was once bombed by NATO in 1999 it is easy to see the people hate NATO. Thousands took to the streets and resisted this ascension to NATO for years, and most recently as the final act concluded.

    Meanwhile, Germany is building a European Army it will dominate. This is inevitable.
    NATO is only a few nations contributing some special forces, and a few nations with capable air forces. The heart of the ground strength would come from Turkey’s armed forces.
    Germany and Erdogan’s Turkey are not friends, to say the least.
    Thus, if ground forces are needed in German and nearby environs, there is nothing.
    So, Germany sees a need to fill.
    When you look at the defense security situation with an open mind, you see that there is a vacuum, a black hole, into which the US will get sucked if everything just keeps on as is.
    Increasing budget contributions is not going to create security.

    Understanding the true nature of the security needs of the US and the civilizations in jeopardy from radical Islamic terror is the starting point. Then a strategy to eliminate the enemy. Then a designed armed force strategic partnership. We are not getting this done by thinking NATO is in that mix. It simply is like expecting the UN to bring Peace to a war zone. They aren’t built for nor do they perform for such tasks.
