G7 — World Throws Tantrum As President Trump Puts America First

Post by 1989TransAm » Fri Jun 08, 2018 12:36 pm

Example. Canada has a 300% tariff on our dairy products. They are so used to a weak President bending over to them . That is no longer the case. GO TRUMP GO

"Leading up to the G7 summit, the entirety of the world Left, from Eurocrats to Media to American Democrats, are angry and supposedly fearful over President Trump starting a new trade war and tearing down the post World War II world order. They claim he is destabilizing the western world and much of the globe.
But that stability was for too long built on America shouldering everyone else’s load, from military protection for Europeans who could afford to do more for their own defense to unfavorable trade deals with those same Europeans and non-allied competitors such as China. In the decade or two after WWII decimated the world, that probably made sense. Maybe even through the fall of the Soviet Union in 1988, although that is less clear. But by 2018?
A shakeup in that part of the Post-War order is long overdue, and many common-sense Americans know this. And it may ultimately be good for the Europeans, depending on their long-term response.
The global pre-G7 hand-wringing and anger of the elitist Left is more akin to a child who has been coddled and spoiled and is suddenly being held to account for his actions. That child is naturally going to be angry and throw a tantrum.
This is most clear with our cushioned western European allies. Our eastern European allies are less elitist, less cushioned and have a more pro-American take.
Donald Tusk, President of the European Council and an elitist bureaucrat among elitist bureaucrats, arrogantly dismissed President Trump as mere “seasonal turbulence.” It’s really pitch perfect for exactly what is wrong in Europe, including that this man, a “president,” is utterly unaccountable and unreachable by any European voters.
German Chancellor Angela Merkel said after Trump criticized European leaders for not spending what they promised to spend on military as part of NATO — part of America shouldering an undue share of their burden: “the times when we could fully rely on others are to some extent over.”
Germany has been one of the biggest leeches on the American military, and thus American taxpayer, even though they were at the front line of the Iron Curtain. If Merkel is saying “fully rely” on America to carry too much of the German defense burden, then hopefully she is right. It doesn’t mean we aren’t allies.
But Merkel, arguably the worst Post-War German Chancellor (counting only West Germans when the nation was divided) has continued on her anti-Trump, and anti-America-first rhetoric leading up to the G7.
Just Wednesday, she said, “That was my takeaway from the NATO summit, and in the meantime I continue to feel confirmed by my statement…All of that confirms the assessment that the world is being reorganized.”
Merkel, along with French, Belgium, Norway, Sweden and other western European leaders combine the NATO comments with Trump’s decision to exit from the Paris global climate treaty — which has since been revealed to be the empty vessel it was — and his exit from the Iran nuclear “accord” last month with his push for more fair trade for Americans, as a threat.
It’s only a threat to the coddled. Ultimately, forcing the Europeans to stand more firmly on their own two legs, and compete for fairly, will be good for them unless they just lay on the floor scream in tantrum mode. They probably will not. After an adjustment period, they will begin altering policies to reflect the new reality and potentially become more lean and competitive and be able to carry more of their own defense load.
Because the reality is that the American economy is rocking from top to bottom, and a lot of it is due directly to the election of Trump and his deregulation and tax policies.
Here is a telling confession from a top American economist: “A lot of us economists have had our long-term forecasts ruined by the election of Donald Trump,” Moody Managing Director and Chief Economist John Lonski told Fox Business Network’s Stuart Varney. “The idea was that growth would be stuck at 2 percent indefinitely, stagnation had set in for the long run and now we’re not so sure that is necessarily going to be the cast.”
GDP growth is now estimated to be 3.5 percent this year. Trump has changed the domestic paradigm as he is working on the international paradigm.
Trump upsetting the table cart domestically has meant net good things for all Americans who don’t want to just live on the dole. It can mean the same for our European allies, too. But they’ll have to adjust.
We won’t see that sentiment at the G7 summit. But we might down the road."

While DT is putting America First, he (Closet Commie) states wants to readmit Russia back into the G7, since they got booted after invading Crimea in 2014(?), and he is leaving G7 early, skipping any environmental discussions negoitations .

What a lacking figure we have as our American leader.

The main concern is that the last time the US went on an America first tariff binge it triggered a global depression and most people would prefer not to repeat that.

If their was any doubt the Trump is in the pocket of the Russians, his statements about letting Russia back in the G-7, without pulling out of a country they invaded, tells all any person needs to hear. Along with new court filings by Mueller, we simply need to impeach Trump before he destroys the international order the US built after WW II to keep the world from destroying itself. D Day anniversary should remind everyone why we have a G-7 organization and why it's important to world peace and prosperity. Trump thinks America first is America alone, lets see what games North Korea has in mind, they will not give up nuclear weapons, Trump is a fool to think all he has to do is impress their leaders with his line of BS. I have little respect for a leader who would abuse their friends and allies, over what should be taken care of with quiet negotiations, and not political stunts. People in Europe and Japan do not like to see their leaders made fools of, they have domestic politics to consider, those leaders may have to act against the US, even if they hope Trump is not going to hold power very long.

Oh dear Lord :roll:

It's quite simple, really: you either bring Russia back in and have a chance at some sort of deal, or you keep them out with absolutely no chance at anything changing.

What method over the last few decades has worked? Do you think keeping someone like Putin in a "timeout" will do anything?

Your blind hatred for Donald Trump keeps you, well... blind!
