    Trumpians cheer when The Sonald treats our long time allies as he would treat a Girl Scout fresh out of Thin Mints. He disses them, he berates them, he speaks as if he wants to sever ties with them.

    And so, we have been told that Canada is a strategic threat. We have been told that NATO can go it alone. We have been told that the EU Market is a place Americans would rather not deal with. We have been told that Mexicans are unworthy of any respect.

    So bridges burned. Treaties torn asunder. Allies shunned.

    Who would you Trumpians greet as allies? Or do you believe that America First means no allies at all?

    The board moron already ran a thread on this.

    And so we'll be consistent.

    WHO GIVES A FUCK IF WE HAVE ALLIES OR NOT ?

    This is a rather myopic view of foreign policy, don't you think?

    Obviously, I don't think so.

    Please don't attempt to explain my thinking.

    Trump isn't burning any bridges. They'll keep us around because they need us and they always have.

    We don't have kiss their asses to keep them by our side.

    NATO apes the UN by letting Uncle Sam foot the bills. Trump put a halt to that today. No more freeloading on the US from now on.

    No point in having so called "allies" when they refuse to keep up their end of the bargain with NATO. The slackers got bitch slapped into another galaxy and rightfully so. It's pretty freaking sad when Estonia, Greece, Poland and the UK are respecting the NATO agreement and the rest aren't.

    And as far as Canada goes, Trudeau is accepting returning Canadian ISIS jihadists willy nilly. You should worry.

    Bingo! The key reason they can run all their social programs is that they do not invest in their military. They completely rely on America.

    Seriously what does the US get for paying 650 billion plus to be in the NATO club?
