At the US Republican convention: President Trump lured German Chancellor Merkel into a trap

The picture shows Donald Trump and Angela Merkel



After another wave of police brutality in the United States, Vice President Mike Pence addressed the party members in the historic Fort McHenry. The Vice President's speech was delivered at the Republican Party convention. According to Pence, he "condemns the violence and chaos on the streets of American cities that arise in response to police brutality, as he condemns the arbitrariness itself."

Pence said that in the United States "law and order will reign on the streets for Americans of every race, creed and color." And for law and order to reign, according to Mike Pence, Americans must vote for Donald Trump in the elections.

Penny:

The Trump administration will maintain security, support the minority for another four years.

Pence spoke these words against the backdrop of yet another escalation of violence in the United States. The riots manifested themselves in the city of Kenosha (Wisconsin). This city has turned into a real hot spot on the map of the United States. It all started with the fact that the police opened fire on the African American Jacob Blake. Two people have already become victims of the clashes.

Penny:

If we all trust Donald Trump as president for another 4 years, he will continue to deliver on his promises. He has already fulfilled many of these: he promised to move the American embassy in Israel to Jerusalem - he did, he promised to increase the power of the army - he did, he promised to eliminate the Iranian general Soleimani - he kept his word. We made America great again.

Special attention was paid to the Republican Congress in Germany. The reason is that the former American ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, spoke at the congress. According to Grenell, Trump is an excellent president, as he has not unleashed a single war and is excellent at making deals.
Grenell:

I watched as President (Trump) lured (German) Chancellor Merkel into a trap and insisted that Germany honor its NATO commitments.


German users, ironically about the words of Grenell, noted different comments. One of them:

It turns out that Merkel got out of Trump's trap after all. Perhaps with bruises, but still not increasing the spending on NATO maintenance from the German budget.

        Wow - no bruises. The Americans began to withdraw their military from Germany - and these are jobs for tens of thousands of Germans. Now the conversation is about the fact that NATO will be zeroed out together with such members as the Germans, and a new NATO will appear, but on American terms. In which, perhaps, Germany will not be from the word at all. And then the Americans will withdraw all their military and transfer the bases, and then, hundreds of thousands of Germans may lose their jobs. And so yes, a light pat wassat

    but still without increasing spending on NATO from the German budget.

    one can only guess why the German user has a common misconception in Runet that we are talking about spending on NATO. smile
    In fact, we are talking about spending on the maintenance of the German army.

        This is a general rule officially adopted in NATO - each of the countries should spend at least 2 percent of GDP on defense. Not to NATO, but to their army.
        Germans 1,3 or something ....

          But the fact is that from these 2% something is dripping into the US military-industrial complex. Therefore, Trump is still advocating increased spending on the defense industry.

            NATO often buys weapons from each other.
            In this case, the claim is that Germany itself voted for this 2 percent, and does not fulfill.

              Compare the US military-industrial complex and the military-industrial complex of united Europe. Who buys more from whom. The United States is in small numbers, sometimes takes small arms, and Europe is bent under F 35. Everything is as always - "nothing personal, only business."

                about bending down - this is an exaggeration, of course, the Turks in general were in the span and there is a queue for 7 years, but in general they buy, of course. At the same time, the agreement does not limit the fact that Germany, where it will spend this 2 percent. What he considers necessary, the main thing is defense.
                Although he builds barracks, even the F-35 buys.

    In the United States, the president or the killer keeping his word? Organized killing is openly acknowledged and credited. They voice the supposedly created traps for the leader of another country and are proud of it. And this is a policy based on diplomacy? Complete madhouse.

      This is politics on the right of the strong. Arbitrariness, despotism - call it what you want, but force is respected everywhere, in America even more so.
      And they must be understood as follows: initially, the settlers were the ruined nobility, farming, merchants, industrialists who were going to turn around in a new place, all kinds of adventurers and gentlemen of fortune, criminals who had a gallows in their homeland, not burdened by moral principles due to their origin or prevailing conditions, and who had nothing much to lose. And they established their own rules in a new place - the rules of the strong - here the farmer will take up arms: to live with wolves - howl like a wolf. Then black slaves were added to this public from the beginning, brought from communal societies, who fiercely hated their new masters. Then there was the two-faced Puritan morality, which recognized as a sign of God's chosenness success at any cost and saving face ("we are respectable gentlemen"), "Protestant ethics." And later, Freemasonry, eugenics and fascism flourished on this soil. Hypocrisy as a defining national trait: Americans, recognized masters of provocations, even whitewash their own history, dividing even the civil war into black and white: in fact, since then, they have been engaged in myth-making and intrigue.

    Trump is a businessman and so far it is clear that he milks his allies without even being embarrassed! The only thing that can be credited to Trump is that he did not start a war.So the average American president promises a lot and does nothing

    It turns out that Merkel got out of Trump's trap after all ...


    Merkel only promised (like all women) that Germany will be able to increase its NATO contribution to 1,5% only by 2024, but about 2%, she did not even stutter. Now Germany has paid (2018) only 1,23% (1,5 billion euros), instead of 2%. So Trump didn't lure Merkel into any trap. This is electoral chatter.
    And 2% are contributed to NATO, only 7 countries out of 29:
    USA, England, Poland, Greece, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia.
    All the last 5-ros are subsidized by the EU.

    Regarding the trap, it is said strongly, but unreasonably, and this does not change Frau Merkel's dependence on the states, unfortunately. Yes, and all of Europe, if objectively, it was not for nothing that the post-war world was divided. Now they are using a profitable section, along the way, picking up almost all the countries of the former Soviet bloc.

    Merkel has a situation ... On the one hand, the Clintonoids, on the other, Trump and his team. Trump or pay for the withdrawal of troops from Europe, the Clintonoids are against. Trump demands balance in the trade balance (we buy BMWs and Mercedes, and you buy our gas), otherwise we will raise duties on German goods. The Clintonoids do not care about the US trade balance and unemployment because work for financial globalists.

      This is your comment, sorry, muddy and incomprehensible.

      In the text of the news in Russian it is written in white: Congress of the US Republican Party. From what other such countries should the representatives of the American party "come"? .. It's like asking: from which countries did the United Russia party come to the United Russia congress ... It seems like it's already twelve o'clock in the afternoon Moscow time - it's time to wake up)))

    Regarding the propaganda on the ZDF in the 19th, there was an article about the Bundeswehr's research on what society expects from it, machine translation: anti-Atlanticist and multilateral. This means: they do not believe in military force as an effective or morally acceptable means of foreign policy, unequivocally advocate cooperation with friendly states and allies, and seek to free foreign policy from the United States ... Isolationism or world police? In the 2016 Bundeswehr White Paper, the most important strategic document of German foreign and security policy, the federal government has pledged to increase the global role of the military, but always together with our partners NATO and the EU. It seems that most Germans share this position, even if in recent years about nor viewed the United States as an unreliable ally. During the years when IS militias controlled a significant part of Syria and, in particular, Iraq, two-thirds of those surveyed spoke in favor of an active foreign policy of Germany. "

    This is the most important of all promises .. It also means that something like this will promise and will go for a second term ..
