[Transcript] – PRESIDENT TRUMP: Okay, thank you very much, everybody. And we’ll be having a meeting largely based on trade — President of Switzerland and representatives from Switzerland.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: That’s right. That’s right.

PRESIDENT SOMMARUGA: — (inaudible). And you know that Switzerland President has only for one year.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Right.

PRESIDENT SOMMARUGA: So you can see the diversity of Swiss Presidents. (Laughter.) We have different languages. Mr. Parmelin, he will be the President next year.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: That’s very good.

So, very glad to have had this talk. On our diplomatic channels, we agreed on three main issues to talk about: our bilateral relations, including good offices in Switzerland, of course. Then, as well, on our economic ties we have — and also something which is concerning everybody: global warming. I think it’s worth also to talk about that —

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Sure.

      Took the words right outta my mouth! Global Warming? She has not even modernized the verbiage from the Al Gore days. Now they say Climate Change because the Earth is not warming and Florida is not covered in 10 feet of water. HAHA. She is definitely a believer though along with all of the other countries in Europe who would play us for suckers with their hands out to get taxpayer dollars for their own pet projects or just in their pockets.

    Brilliant of Trump to maneuver around Europe and seal trade deals with the U.K. and now the Swiss, who are not a part of the EU. Puts more pressure on the EU (Germany-France) to make a trade deal with the US. Our president never stops out flanking his opponents! MAGA!!

    How do the Europeans elect these people to run their countries..?

    (Altho with our own previous 8-year track record, maybe we shouldn’t be so quick to criticize…)

      Europe has not bred any outstanding leaders for several generations now. Socialism tends to destroy exceptionalism in individuals as well as entire nations. So we see a constant display of mediocrity in their “leadership” positions. IMHO, I think these weak leaders get promoted based upon how well they show their fealty to the Left’s holy grails: abortion, diversity, and global warming / climate change.

        Expanding on your point, I’ve read a couple of interesting essays that postulate a lot of Europe’s problems are the result of their nationalist, alpha male demographic was eliminated by two world wars in one century.

          It is “Leftwing-ism”, world wars or not.
          Feminism and Socialism both combine to deliberately repress males’ natural tendency to lead and win.

            You are both right. Canada is pretty much the same, at least in the eastern half. Funny how those in real power above all the national brouhaha since the beginning of the 20th century have gotten things to go their way in Europe – a neutered and compliant populace continually voting for the “popular” good.

    Because people all over the world thought the LOONEY LIBERALS had all the answers. Minister of the Environment, that is such a WANKY LIBERAL title. What exactly is she going to do to save the environment? Has she been outspoken to the Chinese or the Indians who are polluting the air with so many toxins, but nobody will call them out.

  9. President Trump laid out his Roadmap to M🇺🇸A🇺🇸G🇺🇸A! 😎
    … NONE of them know how to NAVIGATE! 🤣
    … and ALL of em are OWNED by Back-Seat Drivers. 😲

    It’ll take them a DECADE to fall far enough to WANT to change 😢
    … and a GENERATION to find a leader who MIGHT know how. 😭

      BKR;
      NAILHEAD, meet HAMMER.
      They haven’t got a clue, even when he lays it ALL out, with INSTRUCTIONS.

      Its true, there really ISN’T a cure for stupid.
      And your prognastication is equally spot on; they will have to endure a lot of pain, before they will be motivated to change.
      Thing is, its the people who will have to endure the pain. HOW do the EU countries PAY for generous pension plans, National health care, great infrastructure, etc. when they have to also pay for their own defence, AND no longer enjoy huge trade deficit with U.S.?

      WHATEVER will they DO? Gee, maybe cut strangling regulations, encourage economic growth, build a strong middle class, ALL the things PDJT layed out, so simply and eloquently in his opening address?

      No, much easier to continue to look down their nose,at him and us Deplorables (even in their own country) and whats more BLAME him and us for THEIR problems, that THEY created.

      A generation?
      They’re not gonna make it.

      Ethnic Europeans are not having babies. One out of five babies born in France is given an Islamic name. Berlin is relaxing German language requirements for the police academy – they’re THAT desperate.

      Erdogan is licking his chops, he can TASTE his power over the EU that won’t have him as a member. He’s blackmailing them, controlling the migration valve. They keep appeasing him; they’ve forgotten the wages of appeasement.

      A decade seems like an optimistic stretch.
