    Donald Trump gets chilly reception at NATO summit

    President Trump got a chilly reception Tuesday at the NATO summit in Brussels from anxious and angry European leaders, but he still can count on a few friendly faces in the old military alliance.

    European Council President Donald Tusk set the scene by warning Mr. Trump that he is losing friends fast.

    “Dear America, appreciate your allies. After all, you don’t have that many,” the former Polish prime minister said in a rebuke of Mr. Trump’s criticism of NATO nations who are not meeting their defense spending obligations.

    Mr. Tusk represents the majority opinion — a decidedly skittish view of Mr. Trump — among the 29 NATO member countries.

    Mr. Trump infuriated European heads of government by demanding that their countries pay their shares for NATO, by demanding new trade deals with better terms for the U.S. and by making chummy overtures to Russian President Vladimir Putin. :iyfyus.jpg:

    They shouldn't have to pay their agreed upon share. After all, they never have before.

    Fuck NATO. I'd pull out and leave them holding the bag. They haven't and never would do shit for us anyway. They only remained our friends so long as we held out the bag of American goodies for them to pick from!

    It should be NATO's problem, not Trump's. Only prostitutes demand to be paid for their "loyalty".

    They have been sucking off the teet of the US for decades, weaning time y'all!!! Why would we expect them NOT to be unhappy! Does beotching loudly necessarily indicate validity to their claims... and if it did, why should the US sacrifice more blood and treasure in a one sided fleecing!

    Our allies went to Afghanistan and Iraq after 9/11. Guess we shouldn't count on their help in the future.

    Do you remember the tremendous help NATO gave us on the North Korean matter? Yea, me neither. We don't need NATO. It's way past time to get out.

    Lessee, what part of having EU pay their fair share, fair trade deals, and using diplomacy on Russia do you not like? You liked it fine when obummermade nice with Iran, Russia and Cuba! What’s up with you?
