You start this article by criticising Trump for pointing out the failings of the EU, then continue on to point out the failings of the EU yourself! Someone needs to inform the EU of it's failing's and Trump is the only man with the balls to do it. Trump tells it as it is, he doesn't just smile and shake hands like many of the past so called leaders.

"...our most trusted and faithful allies..." haven't been paying their way for decades. You can't have it both ways. If you want the US involved in the defence of Europe, then the NATO clowns have to start carrying their fair share of the burden and stop relying on US taxpayers to do it for them.

So where does that leave you with "...Trump's betrayal..."? It's not a betrayal to kick NATO in the arse for their manifest failures.

This bloke must have missed History 101 to say of European countries, "These are the 70-year-old allies that stood by us through thick and thin, never wavered, demonstrated utter loyalty". What utter rubbish.

How many American lives has it taken to bring an end to war between the idiots of Europe, & who is sliding into dependence on Russian gas to warm their toes & keep their lights on? It certainly isn't Trump.

These anti Trump idiots will say, & possibly even almost convince even themselves of the truth of any garbage in their hatred & fear of being drained from the nice soggy swamp they have been wallowing in for years.

My once respect for academics has slipped below that I extend to used car salesmen as they have leapt on the global warming gravy train. Now they can see that Trump will not only knock the wheels off their train, but plans to rip up the rails, so it won't run again.

Surely even our lefties must start to see this hate for the dangerous rubbish it is.

When Trump slums it in his small Washington home (The White House) compared to his much larger home* in Trump Tower. Trump phones Melania:

Trump - "Hiya Tuts, I'm worried"

Melania - "Yes Boss?"

Trump - "You know how Putin and I share the same Russian whores. I think I'm cross infected!"

If Putin had of wanted to drive a wedge through western allies, then his puppet D. trump (Putin's man in the oval office?) has, I believe, started in fine fashion! And could've hardly done a better job!?

"He treated them as if they were junior business partners who failed to pay their dues while reaping much of the profits."

But they are junior business partners who failed to pay their dues while reaping much of the profits.

I think that if I was a USian the thing that'd piss me off more than anything else is the way the Europeans gloat over their superior welfare spending as compared to the US while knowing that that higher spending is only possible because the US is subsidising their defence spending.
