President Trump and Chancellor Merkel BiLat During NATO Summit…

Earlier this morning President Trump stunned NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg with the atomic sledgehammer of truth.  Stoltenberg never recovered.  The issue was/is NATO asking the U.S. for defense against Russia while the NATO member nations, driven by the construct of Germany, finance Russia through energy purchases.

Then comes the Angela Merkel bi-lateral meeting.

.

[Transcript 3:45 P.M. CEST] – PRESIDENT TRUMP: We’re having a great meeting. We’re discussing military expenditure. We’re talking about trade. We have a very, very good relationship with the Chancellor. We have a tremendous relationship with Germany. They’ve made tremendous — you’ve had tremendous success and I congratulate you. Tremendous success. And I believe that our trade will increase and lots of other things will increase. But we’ll see what happens over the next period of a few months.

CHANCELLOR MERKEL: (As interpreted.) Well, let me say that I am very pleased, indeed, to have this opportunity here for this exchange of views. And, indeed, we had an opportunity to have an exchange about economic developments, on issues such as migration, and also the future of our trade relations.

We also briefly touched upon the upcoming trips of the President. And let me say that I’m very much looking forward to further extending our exchanges in the future and enhancing them. I think they’re very important to have those exchanges together. Because after all, we are partners, we are good partners, and we wish to continue to cooperate in the future.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Okay, thank you very much, everybody. Thank you.

Q Did you discuss the gas pipeline?

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Yes.

Q (Inaudible.)

PRESIDENT TRUMP: We discussed that. Thank you very much.

END 3:47 P.M. CEST

 

…”Germany is totally controlled by Russia, because they will be getting from 60 to 70 percent of their energy from Russia and a new pipeline. And you tell me if that’s appropriate, because I think it’s not, and I think it’s a very bad thing for NATO and I don’t think it should have happened.”..  ~President Trump

Chancellor Merkel was ‘triggered‘… President Trump was not supposed to point out the truth about the financial relationship between Russia and Germany. Germany funds Russia and simultaneously asks the U.S. to spend money protecting them from Russia.

Chancellor Angela Merkel has turned off nuclear energy development, banned fracking, and has almost no wind/solar development. The primary way Germany keep the lights on, and manufacturing continuing, is Russian gas. Simultaneously Germany gives subsidies for the industrial use of electricity.

Germany buys Russian gas from Putin, subsidizes their auto-manufacturing, ships cars to the US, imposes tariffs on U.S. automakers, and questions President Trump’s relationship with Putin and commitment to NATO? Nuts.

    They really can’t believe that a US President has dared to tell the truth and confront them with their hypocrisy and lies…and I have never paid so much attention to these meetings with this much interest and anticipation!!!! LMAO. Now this is the New World Order under DJT.

    He’s actually doing 4 or 5 things at the same time, all with upside to the U.S.

    1st, he’s trying to get others to foot their share of the bill, obviously
    2nd, he’s trying to get the rest of NATO to buy their fuel from the U.S. (and spare his scorn!)
    3rd, he’s trying to get Merkel, whom he can’t stand, in political trouble. She’s already shaky
    4th, he’s trying to illustrate any kind of disagreement he has with Putin for the moronic liberals
    5th, he’s trying to get us out of NATO because Germany is exhibiting it’s unnecessary

    EPIC stuff going on here. He’s like 5 levels deep, and i’m probably missing another 10 levels.

    • 6th he’s setting up massive energy-displacement leverage for meeting with Putin.

      7th he’s triggering a European rearmament race against Russia … and more leverage for meeting with Putin.

      8th he’s confronting Europe with the requirement to Defend Themselves … EITHER through a fully-funded and energy-independent NATO … OR by creating a EU ARMY that Germany can direct to achieve the 4th REICH.

      9th he’s setting up FULL-BREXIT conditions for Europe’s FIRST Bilateral Trade Deal with May.

      10th he’s setting up the Escape Hatch for other EU countries to follow BREXIT and escape American Tariffs and 4th Reich control over Remainers.

        For all intents and purposes Germany has attained the 4th Reich. Germany now controls the EU through the EU. Germany’s economic strength has made it the EU’s BMOC, it wags the dog.
        Germany was the shot-caller on bailing out Greece and has been the main -= if not sole – reason Turkey’s in NATO but has been blocked from joining the EU. Germany’s risked a meltdown of a major strategic position in NATO just because it solidly refuses to allow Turkey EU entry. It allowed the basket case old Bloc countries in but blocked Turkey. Germany calls the tune and the old dowager states shuffle.

          One of the things that made me spit about Greece, was they had Greece buy fleets of BMW busses and coaches with borrowed money from DEUSCHEBANK, knowing perfectly well they couldn’t pay it back. Then reproached them with having them and wrecked the country to get it back. In a sane world, that’s a forced sale. It’s illegal in France. Basically sub prime scandal. Their behaviour has been scandalous. All the time virtue signalling.

      Merkel and her cohorts were just regurgitating the agreement made at the 2014 NATO summit for the 2% targets to be met by 2024.
      Note:
      1. Before the 2014 Summit, Obama criticized NATO for not hitting their 2% goals.
      2. Then Obama turns around and allow them 10 years to meet their commitments, which none of the scofflaws has shown any serious movement towards meeting and likely had zero intention of meeting. This is the point President Trump is hammering upon. How can Germany and the other dead beats commit so much money to Russia (and IRAN) but not meet their NATO commitment.

      This has been going on for longer than Merkel. Schroeder, who wound up working for Russian gas interests, was the one who really got that deal rolling. And Russia has used the gas supply trick on Germany before.
      Germany has been sold out by its politicians for a very long time — and in the process they have created a situation, because they are a powerful member of the EU, that has sold out the people of Europe.

    “Nord Stream 2 is a Bad Deal for Europe”

    “This week, Western leaders will gather at the NATO Summit in Brussels to discuss the most pressing issues of the day, likely including the construction of the Nord Stream 2 natural gas pipeline. The pipeline, owned by Russian energy giant Gazprom, would significantly increase Moscow’s capacity to export natural gas directly to Germany. Nord Stream 2 is too often mistakenly framed as primarily a German commercial issue or a Ukrainian transit problem, since the country will be bypassed by the new pipeline. Sometimes, even more misleadingly, it is portrayed as a rival to the United States’ liquefied natural gas (LNG) export ambitions to European markets.

    But is this gas pipeline really that bad for Europe?

    The short answer is an unequivocal yes. Here are the four main reasons why:

    1. It undermines Europe’s energy security strategy
    2. It would help Russia export corruption to Europe
    3. Explosions or military accidents could disrupt Europe’s gas supplies
    4. Nord Stream 2 increases exposure to cyber risks
    (Need to read the article)

    “The verdict

    Nord Stream 2 not only runs counter to the European Union’s energy security strategy, but also creates new security risks. Decision makers from Lisbon to Helsinki should make it unambiguously clear that they oppose the building of this pipeline.

    Still, given the political delicacy of the matter, it is up to Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel and her coalition partners to decide how Berlin wants to be seen by its neighbors and allies. As Europe’s leading power, will Germany rise to the challenge and, for Europe’s sake, demonstrate genuine leadership by blocking Nord Stream 2? Or will Berlin succumb to local interests, the Kremlin’s wooing and pressure, and undermine EU solidarity at a time when greater unity is most needed? The ball is in Germany’s court. ”

    Former Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder has profited from gas deals with Russia

    Germany’s sanctimony knows no bounds , their CO2 emissions have continued to increase while they berate DJT for pulling out of the Paris Climate Scam. Merkel initiated closing down German nuclear power plants after Japan suffered the Fukushima tsunami, which had nothing to do with any power plant malfunction, the plant was damaged by the tsunami.
    Germany strip mines lignite, or brown coal ( low energy fuel similar to peat) and is destroying small villages which are hundreds of years old, and displacing the residents. This is on top of the invasion that Merkel is responsible for.

    This Stasi agent needs to go, but the total censorship and outright suppression of opposition and dissent is very difficult for the people to overcome. Readers may recall potato merkel meeting with zuckerberg to request his help censoring and tracking down those German citizens who were not
    ” with the program.”

    Defense minister Ursula von der Leyen has presided over a steep decline in Bundeswehr readiness. Besides reduction in numbers , the lack of spare parts has crippled the Luftwaffe and the Bundesmarine . Eg: reported that only 4 of their fighter jets are ready for action; None of their six submarines are ready for sea. And it’s not just the Germans- the British Royal Navy has only 26 total destroyers and frigates. PATHETIC
