Default This Is Why Trump Is President

"President Donald Trump on Wednesday had a testy exchange with the head of NATO when he asked about energy agreements between Russia and several European countries.

Trump repeatedly pressed Jens Stoltenberg, NATO's secretary general, on why the U.S. continued to pay money to the military alliance while countries continue to purchase energy from Moscow....."

When I read this I was ****** this morning. We pay to protect Europe from the Russian enemy and then she turns around and uses that same protection to do business with the enemy that she would not be able to do without our protection. We provide that protection in ****ing blood. **** her and enjoy hell German Hillary.

Funny how dems want American’s to “pay their fair share” and have “income equality” when it comes to us. Now they are up in arms against Trump for telling NATO that they needed to pay their fair share. Double standard as usual.

Read an article today that we are soon to become the largest producer of oil in the world. Trump took the leash of the dog and the dog wants to bite.

Oh hell yes. What was it that OPEC threatened to do to us? Flood the world with cheap oil and destroy our economy?

Actually Trump just had to ask Saudi to put out more oil to lower prices in order to help our economy. Oil was too expensive.

Their relationship with Russia is odd though.

I liked the article about Germany not paying it's fair share and their soldiers doing drills in rented vans and broomsticks to simulate rifles.

The bottleneck is moving the oil from the oilfield to refineries or ports for shipping.

We need a patriotic pipeline, so we dont have to truck or railcar oil where we need it to be.

But that in itself is a positive thing on two fronts. We become the biggest producer or not by choice and we have a healthy relationship now with the Royal Saud to where they actually play along. No President has done that yet.

“Nothing would be easier politically than to refuse to meet, to refuse to engage, but that would not accomplish anything.

Sounds like what Teddy Roosevelt might have said and then added "walk softly and carry a big stick"

Can y'all imagine how successful he could be IF his own party would back him up instead of trying to undermine him at every turn... If the Repulsicans would unite like the DemoKrauts do, they could kick *** and take names... sad really they are squandering their best chance in generations to really make a difference in this country's future... I'm afraid they're about to blow it.
