He blew off Macron's Peace Forum, just slapping any face he can find. Asshole.Also habitually avoiding the cold realities of the office he infests.
Edit: Saw some video of Macron and Merkel doing the ceremony and the fucking sun is out. Our petulant child president is sitting in a room stroking off to Hannity re-runs.
Vs"We have to protect ourselves with respect to China, Russia and even the United States of America,
“When I see President Trump announcing that he's quitting a major disarmament treaty which was formed after the 1980s Euro-missile crisis that hit Europe, who is the main victim?” he asked. “Europe and its security.” The French president concluded that Europe needed a unified military in order to “protect” itself.
“It is up to us to guarantee European security,” Macron said in an August speech, adding that the continent could no longer rely on the U.S. for protection.
However, Trump also described the European Union as a “foe” last summer. When asked about world powers he saw as threats to the U.S., the president mentioned the longtime U.S. allies first, before also pointing to Russia and China.
“Well, I think we have a lot of foes. I think the European Union is a foe, what they do to us in trade,” he said. “Now you wouldn't think of the European Union, but they're a foe."
Gee, I wonder what the motivation is. /sIt's not a new idea.
From last November:
EU countries agree to create a European mega-army
And this, more specific, is what Macron has been pushing for a while now:
Nine EU states sign off on joint military intervention force
Should throw in he is doing this on the Marine Corp birthday as well.
Gee, I wonder what the motivation is. /s
