VIDEO: President Trump Drops the Hammer on NATO Just Before Summit Begins

Published

President Trump is not the kind of man to mince words when he’s got something on his mind to say, and he most certainly lived up to that well earned reputation for telling it like it is when he obliterated members of NATO for not giving enough money to the organization.

He didn’t stop there. He also accused Germany of being held captive by Russia.

As you can see, Trump was fired up and ready to go, unafraid to speak his mind which is one reason among many that so many folks admire him.

NPR reports:

In a stunning public dressing-down of NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, President Trump fired off criticisms of the alliance, reiterating his complaint that it is not paying enough for defense and singling out a German oil-and-gas pipeline deal with Russia.

“Well, I have to say I think it’s very sad when Germany makes a massive oil and gas deal with Russia when you’re supposed to be guarding against Russia,” Trump said.

“So, we’re protecting Germany, we’re protecting France, we’re protecting all of these countries,” Trump continued. “And then numerous of the counties go out and make a pipeline deal with Russia where they’re paying billions of dollars into the coffers of Russia. So, we are supposed to protect you against Russia.”

“You tell me if that is appropriate?” Trump said as he blistered NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg. “Germany is totally controlled by Russia.”

“This has been going on for decades,” Trump continued. “This has been brought up by other presidents, but other presidents never did anything about it.”

“It’s very unfair to our country, it’s very unfair to our taxpayers,” Trump said. “And I think that these countries have to step it up not over a 10 year period— they have to step it up immediately.”

Ouch. That’s definitely going to leave a mark on the delicate ego of these so-called “world leaders” and influencers, wouldn’t you agree?

Trump is right in saying that previous presidents have not done much to fix this particular situation, which strongly suggests he’s most definitely going to solve the problem if he has the time to do so. This is precisely what he did with the whole North Korea situation too.

Obama and President Bush before him could’ve done more to fix a lot of issues on the geopolitical stage, but out of fear of not pleasing their base, they chose to compromise their values in this particular area of politics.

Thankfully, we have a commander-in-chief in office who is actually taking measures to clean up the mess. We need to stop making them because we may not be so blessed to have someone like Trump come in and fix things in the future.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
