America’s Idiot President Tried To Invoice Germany For Money That They Don’t Owe NATO

The humiliations never stop with Donald Trump as president. The German government is confirming that Trump tried to intimidate the US ally by giving Chancellor Angela Merkel an invoice for hundreds of billions of dollars that he claims the German people owe NATO.

The Sunday Times reported, “Donald Trump handed the German Chancellor Angela Merkel a bill — thought to be for more than £300bn — for money her country “owed” Nato for defending it when they met last weekend, German government sources have revealed. The bill — handed over during private talks in Washington — was described as “outrageous” by one German minister.”

The story confirms that Trump is clueless about how treaties work. As former US Ambassador NATO Ambassador Ivo Daalder recently tried to explain to Trump, NATO is not a financial transaction. NATO is not a US-owned private club like Mar-a-Lago. It is not Trump’s job to collect dues from member countries.

Daalder tweeted to Trump:

Anytime Trump has pulled his “Art Of The Deal” nonsense as president; he has failed miserably. Trump tried to force House Republicans into voting on health care but had to withdraw the bill at the last second after he was facing certain defeat, and Germany has made it clear that they are going to shrug off and ignore Trump’s amateur tactics.

Donald Trump has no idea what he is doing, and his incompetence is embarrassing the United States of America.
