Re: President Trump & U.S Election 2016 Investigation

The guy really should read up on what NATO is and how it works. Seems to think that the GDP spend from each country goes in to some kind of slush fund accessed by all countries. So thinks that the USA has paid more to it than everyone else and is there for owed money back.

It's actually a % GDP of each country spent on their own defence.

Just posted....

Exactly what has energy spending got to do with defence??
Quote:
What good is NATO if Germany is paying Russia billions of dollars for gas and energy? Why are their only 5 out of 29 countries that have met their commitment? The U.S. is paying for Europe’s protection, then loses billions on Trade. Must pay 2% of GDP IMMEDIATELY, not by 2025.
he really needs to educate himself on how these things actually work.

Surely it's actually very democratic? One of the cornerstones of a functioning democracy are that people are free to disagree with what is happening, and are free (within certain boundaries) to peacefully protest what is happening. They are also free to disagree with each other, again, peacefully. This is one thing the right wing forget. Even in this country, where the attitude of a lot of people (particularly the press) is "if you disagree with me, you are both wrong and a traitor". That is actually a very facist way of looking at things. A lot of Trump supporters certainly appear to have forgotten the right to peaceful protest. Ironically a right the the 2nd Amendment (which they frequently use to defend Gun use) was actually intended to defend.

Admittedly, that does not mean the balloon is not childish, but if Trump were a suitable world leader, I'd argue he'd not be offended by a mere bit of Mickey taking, after all, it's beneath him. He has far more important things to worry about than a balloon.

Re: President Trump & U.S Election 2016 Investigation

Actually Stuart it's the first amendment that gives freedom of speech and has nothing to do with the second, that is the right to bear arms.

I'll just throw the full news conference he gave Re-NATO into the mix.

He knows that, he was saying the second amendment exists to protect the first.

Re: President Trump & U.S Election 2016 Investigation

Trump has given an interview to The Sun ripping into May and her approach to Brexit and backing Boris for PM. Extraordinary:



Next few days will be awkward.

Money he has it's probably gold

I don't think he's bothered about a few tramps waving bits of cardboard around .

@realDonaldTrump determined to insult our PM. The divisive, dog-whistle rhetoric in his @TheSun interview is repulsive . If signing up to the #Trump world view is the price of a deal, itís not worth paying
Our closest allies and friends are in Europe, not the US. Hopefully TM will him where to get off, guess she won't.
