EU President Donald Tusk Threatens U.S. President Trump: “appreciate your allies, after all you don’t have that many”…

Stunningly confrontational remarks today from EU President Donald Tusk as U.S. President Trump and First Lady Melania arrive in Brussels for a NATO summit.

After destroying nationalistic Brexit plans for the U.K. to exit the European Union, the insufferable arrogance of the EU surfaces with pontificating snark.

The EU might feel emboldened right now, but this approach will not end well; believe me.

Brussels – Speaking on the eve of the NATO summit here in Brussels, I would like to address President Trump directly, who for a long time now has been criticising Europe almost daily for, in his view, insufficient contributions to the common defence capabilities, and for living off the US.

Dear President Trump: America does not have, and will not have a better ally than Europe. Today Europeans spend on defence many times more than Russia, and as much as China. And I think you can have no doubt, Mr President, that this is an investment in common American and European defence and security. Which can’t be said with confidence about Russian or Chinese spending.

I would therefore have two remarks here. First of all, dear America, appreciate your allies, after all you don’t have that many. And, dear Europe, spend more on your defence, because everyone respects an ally that is well-prepared and equipped.

Money is important, but genuine solidarity is even more important. Speaking about solidarity, I want to dispel the American President’s argument, which says that the US alone protects Europe against our enemies, and that the US is almost alone in this struggle.

Europe was first to respond on a large scale when the US was attacked, and called for solidarity after 9/11. European soldiers have been fighting shoulder-to-shoulder with American soldiers in Afghanistan. 870 brave European men and women sacrificed their lives, including 40 soldiers from my homeland Poland.

Dear Mr President, please remember about this tomorrow, when we meet at the NATO summit, but above all when you meet president Putin in Helsinki. It is always worth knowing: who is your strategic friend? And who is your strategic problem?  (link)

WATCH:

Remember: every parasite needs a host. As soon as the host refuses to remain co-dependent to its own abuse or demise, the abusers begin to panic.

It was exactly a month ago, June 10th after the G7 summit in Canada, when EU European Union President Donald Tusk worried about the Bush-Clinton-Bush-Obama “new world order” legacy being dismantled:

“What worries me most is the fact that the rules-based international order is being challenged, quite surprisingly, not by the usual suspects, but by its main architect and guarantor: the US.”

A condescending European jerk.

    So Europeans, maybe the U.S. doesn’t bail Europe out of the next World War you are presently creating with the Migrants. Maybe unless we are directly attacked we just sit this one out. First one was a family tantrum between your royal twits. Second was a continuation of the first, and the next will be when all the Migrants you are bringing in to replace your natives, attack your neighbors that are trying to keep out the hordes and protect their peoples.

    DJT is a genius precisely because he keeps it simple, stupid. Europe has sucked off the US teet to the detriment of our taxpayers, and Trump says “No more. We will pay our fair share, and so will you.” Pretty damned simple.

    Trump says China, Canada, and all the rest need to have reciprocal trade. Pretty simple. When they say ‘No,’ Trump will do the obvious thing: force reciprocity on his trade partners. He can play that game all damned day long – despite the belly aching from all the faux conservative never-Trumpers.

    I know I shouldn’t be shocked by what the little weasel said, but I am, and yes, talk about cold, white anger. I also have no doubt that if you put him and our President Trump alone, he would turn right into his little omega self. There would be no grandstanding, he’d be too busy laying on his back showing his yellow belly and neck.

    I’m sure he and all of his little friends got together and thought this would be a great idea, since we all know how dependent they are with American money. Unfortunately, they should’ve put their drinks down and really thought of their next action and to think it through. Do they seriously think our President Trump will bow down to their demands and slinker away? Seriously? I think they’ve been watching to much cnn and bbc.

    I’m sure all of the pundits will be screeching for our President Trump to give the EU whatever they want, but the Americans I know, the strong ones, the proud ones, will be standing with our President Trump. I know the anger we are all feeling, and it’s justified.

    I think we should all get on twit or the WH website and let our President Trump know we stand with him. He needs to hear us loud and clear. I’m sure he’s getting more than enough spineless bs from everyone else who wants to sell our country out. Let him hear our voices! Let him know how proud we are to have him lead our great nation.

    Yes, there is likely a lot of water under the bridge with EU Brussels that warrants rise of European popularism political parties and plays into the hands of off the cuff remarks on this side of the Altantic. That aside, the dispute here is the fair share remarks of PDJT with regard to NATO.
    Honestly, many here are not looking at what Tusk said, so I’ll clip and paste it again…

    And, dear Europe, spend more on your defence, because everyone respects an ally that is well-prepared and equipped.

    I am in the category of thinking… All politicians pay lip service, and I am no longer going to except rationized excuses. The only thing that matters is the follow through.
    So, yes Tusk just chided the EU, but was that just a politician making sound bites for the moment and soon to be forgotten or was that acknowledgement that there is an actual issue here.

    • Euro globalists like this corruptocrat Tusk, have made noise about increasing their share of NATO spending many times before.
      In 2006, President Bush asked NATO to increase their spending to 2%. Euro corruptocrats said “yes yes sure Mr President, we will.”
      In 2008, after not seeing any increase, Bush asked again, only to receive the same response.

      Even The Kenyan asked the Euro corruptocrats to increase their spending back in 2011, and suggested (in his polite, effeminate way) that the Euros were complacent.
      So not a word of what this filthy corruptocrat says can be believed.

      By the way, it was Australia first to go shoulder to shoulder with the USA after 9/11. It just so happened that the Aussie PM John Howard (a good friend of G W Bush) was in Washington when the towers were hit. He gave a commitment to the US there and then before rushing back to Australia.
      Aussie special forces were some of the first boots on the ground, as our specialty is covert operations deep behind enemy lines.

    President Trump imposes a 20% NATO-Deficit Tariff (NDT) on ALL NATO NATIONS.
    • The Tariff remains in effect until ALL NATO Nations meet their 2% of GDP Funding Requirement for a FULL YEAR.
    • Nations that meet their Funding Requirement get their Tariff Payments refunded at the end of each year.
    • The NDT goes up 5% each year the problem persists.

    Apologies first for not reading all the comments first…but the thing that strikes me is this, from Tusk. [Emphasis mine]:

    No kidding, Sparky!

    Apparently he’s having problems understanding the meaning of that word in English. Without the full force and fury of the United States of America backing up NATO, NATO is nothing more than an idea. I truly wish someone would ask him what the EU would do if, say, Russia decided they wanted to occupy Denmark, and launched an amphibious assault. Without the US guaranteeing to back up the rest of Europe, exactly HOW do they throw them out?

    History shows us that without US, Europe is vulnerable. Is Tusk so sure that Europe can guarantee its own safety? If not, I suggest he shut his mouth and urge all that the rest of NATO (besides Poland, England, Greece, Estonia, and Romania) to pay their bloody bills! (Butcher’s Bill included).

    I really am offended that a piece of Eurotrash has the temerity to lecture our President, when they are clearly in the wrong.

    This is one of those “last straw” moments for me. For a couple decades, I have thought we had a more natural meshing of interests with Russia in any case. They face the Islamic menace just south of their border and confront the colonist migration in Moscow. They face Chinese imperialism in Siberia where China casts covetous eyes on resources, and has the population to to menace Russian control. Their interest in a reconsidered fresh start could well match up with us.

    WWII ended a long time ago at this point, and the world is a different place. What is in our interest in befriending an Islamic France, a pompous Germany who spits contempt at us, a coterie of tiny worthless postage stamp countries lording their self identified sophistication over those nouveau Americans. Who needs worthless “allies;” they cannot be counted on if there was a need, so what is their good???

    An England that condemns a child (Charlie Gard) to die and refuses to permit the parents to seek to save him, that imprisons Tommy Robinson for having the temerity to speak honestly about Islamic behavior, and that cannot but climb the high horse to insult the President with a childish blimp — this is not an ally but a contemptible sluggard.

    Tired of all the same old, same old blather about front line of defense and so on and so forth. Europe is making common cause with our enemies in Islam and elsewhere in the world.

    Venting here – but enough is enough. Not another dime for their defense.
