U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday attacked Germany for being a “captive” of Russia in abrasive comments that took many people by surprise. All the leaders of Western Europe are in Brussels for a NATO summit where there has been an uneasy expectation that Trump was coming to the summit to cause trouble. He has been saying for months that he wants Europeans to pay more for military defense and the U.S. burden is too great.
Whether it's our allies in Europe or our adversaries in Iran, Russia, and North Korea, the United States has become viewed as a weak and untrustworthy laughingstock under Donald Trump.
Trump wants us to believe he didn't bill Germany, but he also said he was holding meetings until it turned out he was golfing this weekend.
"[Trump] keeps saying that ‘we’ need to be paid by the Europeans for the fact that we have troops in Europe or provide defense there. But that’s not how it works."
