President Trump is in London dealing with a much stronger and more unified NATO. Trump, like every single president before him, complained that NATO members were not paying their fair share.
Most watchers of MSNBC don’t remember Obama, Bush, etc., demanding NATO members pay more.
Trump, unlike those who came before him, was willing to actually do something about it and called NATO’s bluff.
He simply told them to pay more and hinted he could withdraw or otherwise be disengaged with NATO – he used the leverage he had – and it worked.
They are paying more and it is a win the media will never give Trump because they would have to admit they were wrong to bash him on this topic for the last three years.
Trump lashed out at the Democrats today calling them unpatriotic and said they are performing for the cameras.
From The Hill:
President Trump on Tuesday slammed the Democrats’ ongoing impeachment inquiry as “unpatriotic” and “a bad thing for our country” during a trip to London for a meeting with NATO leaders.
“I think it’s very unpatriotic of the Democrats to put on a performance,” Trump said during a meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on the sidelines of the summit, The Associated Press reports.
“I think it’s a bad thing for our country,” he added.
Trump insisted he is centered on improving domestic and foreign policy and not impeachment, despite his frequent tweets bashing Democrats over their probe, the AP noted.
Trump’s comments come ahead of the House Judiciary Committee’s first public hearing in the impeachment probe into the president’s dealings with Ukraine.
The panel on Wednesday will hear from constitutional lawyers to ”explore the framework put in place to respond to serious allegations of impeachable misconduct like those against President Trump,” Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said.
