  • "Dear America, appreciate your allies, after all you don't have all that many."

    European Council President Tusk is appealing to President Trump to remember who his allies are as the U.S. leader prepares to meet with Russian President Putin.

    Speaking as he signed a joint EU-NATO declaration Tuesday with alliance Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, Tusk said in a message to Trump that "it is always worth knowing who is your strategic friend and who is your strategic problem."

    i guess the anti-eu-rightwing groups in europe are more than happy with this, the german afd for example got a lot of support for their anti-migrant politics, im talkin about support from the east and the west.

    Good article

    The best answer to Mr. Trump is “to accept he has a point, and respond by displaying more European strength and enhancing European defense in cooperation with NATO,” Mr. Röttgen said. As a whole, the alliance’s European members spend about $200 billion a year.

    “To be honest, no one really knows how Trump will act during the summit,” Mr. Valasek said. “His unpredictability is not a byproduct but a design feature — he likes it that way. He comes to this meeting not only prepared to go into confrontation with his peers and allies but with his own staff.”

    Fresh wind by Mr. Trump. At least he brings fresh wind into this crusted and overly correct game.

    Sometimes you need someone (strong and influential) to say the unimaginable and even threaten to do it.

    So statists have to finally move and can't sit it all out forever.
