Throughout impeachment, Democrats have argued President Trump is a ‘clear and present danger’ to America.
It’s how they justified rushing through the House portion of the process (but then held the articles for nearly a month).
While Democrats harangue President Trump for his America First approach to foreign policy, he’s simultaneously achieving unprecedented accomplishments for American taxpayers, alleviating them from footing the bill for the rest of the world’s security by getting NATO allies to pay their fair share: dedicating 2% of GDP to defense spending.
And of course establishment media outlets are spinning this as a Trump-induced foreign policy doomsday; he’s “sounding the death knell for NATO,” “putting NATO on life support,” and “abusing America’s closest friends.”
However, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg begs to differ.
He pushes back on this faulty narrative in a recent interview with Maria Bartiromo, as he highlights how President Trump is actually “making NATO stronger.”
Bartiromo asks Gen. Stoltenberg: “Is this true you and President Trump have formed this very close relationship?”
Gen. Stoltenberg responds: As we work closer together because we are concerned about the same things, we are concerned about the rise of terrorism, the importance of fighting terrorism but also how the importance of having fair burden sharing within the NATO alliance. NATO brings together North America and Europe and of course we have to share the burden in a fair way, and he has been very clear that the European allies and Canada have to spend more, and his message is having an impact. And now all European allies and Canada are investing more and this is making NATO stronger.
Bartiromo asks if President Trump’s goal for NATO allies to contribute 2% of GDP to defense spending by 2024 is achievable.
Gen. Stoltenberg, citing President Trump’s contributions, responds: “Yes. The target is to be there by 2024. More allies now meet the 2% target already. All allies have started to increase defense spending and the majority of allies have plans in place to be there by 2024. So we have made a lot of progress. Many billion extra US dollars for defense spending in Europe and Canada but we still have a long way to go, so therefore we will be very clear on the message that we need all allies to step up.”
While the left lectures us about the importance of the wealthy “paying their fair share” at home, they’re more than fine with letting our European “allies” get away with doing the exact opposite.
Perhaps Democrats are right; Trump represents a ‘clear and present danger’ to the established way of conducting globalist foreign policy that puts the world first and America last.
