The God-Emperor slams Germany and NATO:
Donald Trump unleashed his fury on NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on Wednesday for defending Germany’s energy partnership with Russia and threatened Berlin with U.S. action over the deal that he said is wholly inappropriate.
Trump fumed that ‘Germany is a captive of Russia’ and said the U.S. would ‘have to do something’ in light of the pipeline deal that’s funneling billions into Moscow’s economy.
‘Germany is totally controlled by Russia,’ he charged. ‘I think its a very bad thing for NATO,’ Trump said.
Stoltenberg reminded that the U.S. and Europe are ‘stronger together than apart’ and that has been proven by two World Wars and the alliance’s dealings with Russia. Trump told him in response, ‘No, you’re just making Russia richer. You’re not dealing with Russia, you’re making Russia richer.’
The confrontation stunned the leaders’ senior advisers, including Trump’s secretaries of defense and state. A press aide demanded the media leave the room as Trump pushed Stoltenberg to explain how the U.S. is supposed to protect Germany when it’s opening the front door to Vladimir Putin.
Remember, always wait three days! I’m not certain what the God-Emperor is up to, but I’m confident that the first three media takes on his rhetoric and actions will be wrong. I’m pretty sure he is aware that it is the USA that militarily occupies Germany and not Russia.
I suspect this is more about trade and cutting US commitments to Europe than anything. After all, if the Germans aren’t going to resist being invaded by millions of migrants, why is the US wasting money to protect them at all?
Trump gave Stoltenberg an earful with media present, telling the visibly startled NATO chief, ‘We’re protecting Germany. We’re protecting France. We’re protecting everybody, and yet, we’re paying a lot of money to protect.’
Trump said that past presidents did not confront America’s allies because they did not want to meddle in their affairs or they were blind to the problem.
‘I think that these countries have to step it up — not over a 10-year-period — they have to step it up immediately,’ Trump demanded. ‘Germany is a rich country. They talk about they’re gonna increase it a tiny bit by 2030. Well, they could increase it immediately tomorrow and have no problem.’
