It is great to have allies.  But to have allies that bend you over and rape you, no thanks.  

Trump is direct and forthright on these matters as that is the only possible way we are ever going to create change on these matters.  Past administrations have spent more than 40 years talking nice to the French or other allies about living up to their commitments.  They just don't do it, unless you call them out directly for it.  It is unfortunate.



Yea, we spend more on NATO than our allies. We always have. It's called global leadership. Yea, they should spend more and they've gradually, slowly, been increasing their NATO spending. But why is Trump obsessed with this relatively minor issue and always keen to give $hit to our longtime allies while praising the murderous dictator who runs Russia? Have you considered it? The answer is because Trump is in Putin's pocket, and Putin's number one foreign-policy goal is to break up the Atlantic Alliance. This is essentially what Trump is up to, but he won't get very far with his treasonous agenda. Trump talks a lot but it is all nothing more than self-serving nonsense--even Republicans see this. He's an idiot.

The reason we have large budget deficits when the GOP is in the WH is because Republicans don’t understand the role of taxation in running a Country.

It is not just about spending more. It is about commitments and respect. 

France in particular is horrible about this.  They say 'Yeah we want to go into Iraq, we are in.'   Then we go in, we are in the heat of the battle look back, realize there are no French there at all.  Call the French up.  "Hey Frenchie, where you go? you said you wanted to help us get rid of Saddam right?"  Only to get from them no, they did not support attacking iraq after all, and thought we were dicks for going in, and were directing all the terrorists to attack the USA, because they suck. 

You can have friends like that if you like.

The French underpayment on NATO, and lack of troop commitments and defense spending commitment has been laughable.  Several other allies as well.  

Then these allies piss and moan the loudest when the US says we would like to pull troops out of Afghanistan.  Go on, complain all you want.  Anyone listening to those complains is such a moron, they are irrelevant. 

Trump has been more harsh on Putin that any President in the past. There has been a never ending list of sanctions Trump has placed on Russia.  

"The sanctions were significant — among the toughest sanctions ever placed on individuals in a foreign country, with the exception of perhaps Iran and North Korea. Yet like many of Trump’s successes, it received minimal mainstream media coverage."

"In August 2017, Trump signed a bill slapping even more sanctions on Russia — this time specifically aimed at the country’s energy and defense industries. Congress made the legislation Trump-proof, meaning that no executive order could ever undo such sanctions; yet Trump signed it anyway."
 
"In fact it was Trump — not Obama — who ordered the closure of Russian diplomatic properties in San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and New York City that appeared to be a threat to American security.

It was also President Trump who shuttered the Russian consulate in Seattle"

Much more in the article:

Not faulting Obama he had a major downturn coming into his term.   Also Obama was focused on giving people welfare and long term unemployment.  Trumps focus has been to move people off of welfare and long term unemployment and into jobs.  So of course you are going to see things start to turn around.  I am just wanting our readers here to get a good perspective of how this is great for them and their fellow working Americans.

It is a good jobs report but we have to stop borrowing a trillion dollars a year in order to get good numbers.  At some point that does more harm than good.

2020 rumors abounding with a cryptic tweet from Nikki Haley

Enough of the false rumors. Vice President Pence has been a dear friend of mine for years. He has been a loyal and trustworthy VP to the President. He has my complete support. ❤️🇺🇸

Haley has said steadily she is not running.

You should really stop watching CNN so closely.  You know they are full of 5hit more than half the time.

Yes, because politicians NEVER lie.

You should stop reading Briebart - the Netherlands were never negotiating to sell Greenland.  Easy mark.

Sounds like Trump is not going to visit Denmark now either.

Probably had as much of a chance to buy it from them as he did from Denmark.

It was simply an interesting tweet - thought it would rile up Mike more than you.

Me.  I like Haley.  She will be fine. 

Kasich and Romney are losers.  Wish if there was going to be a challenge to Trump it will be better than these two losers.  

Haley/Cruz/Jordan/Nunes.  We have more good republicans now than we ever have. 

Anyway not much going to come of all that, other than CNN wetting their pants, which they are going to do anyway.

Me, i think Trump in Term 2 is the worlds largest nightmare for the Dems, and that gives me a tingle up my leg.

No one reputable is going to challenge a sitting President - way too much of an uphill battle.

She probably floated it herself to keep her name out there.  If her were to replace Pence, she would be a good choice though.  Definitely on the shortlist for 2024.

I wouldn't call this a deliberate mistake by President Trump but it isn't news that will attract new voters.


https://www.cnbc.com/2019/08/22/manufacturing-sector-contracts-for-the-first-time-in-nearly-a-decade-according-to-ihs-markit.html

The U.S. manufacturing PMI (purchasing managers index) was 49.9 in August, below the neutral 50.0 threshold for the first time since September 2009, according to IHS Markit.

The article title literally says "NATO to increase defence spending by $100bn amid US criticism"

The article also says "On 14 January, the New York Times reported that Trump told senior officials “several times” of his intentions to leave NATO throughout 2018."

Unemployment in the US right now is hard pegged at 3.7 percent.  This is basically "fully employed" and you cannot create any more jobs.  It would be smart to suspend unemployment for those that have not been recently employed (lifestyle unemployment).  The jobs are out there, those people can join the workforce and stop living off everyone else's hard work.  We should also move large numbers of those claiming to be 'disable' on the social security roles, saving that assistance for those that are truly disabled.  Moving those folks back out into the work force will be good for them and for their country.
