Biden adviser: Trump is trying to take digs at Merkel

Germany withdraws US troops: Trump’s last gift to Putin before election?

In a seemingly indomitable yanke this week, he tore up one of those cords by announcing plans to withdraw about 12,000 troops from Germany. This thin green thread of forces woven through Germany’s historic historic cities, rolling fields and dense forests has helped ensure peace in Europe for three generations, embodying an unwavering commitment among former enemies.

The relationship is now though, especially if Trump is elected later this year, in Freefall, the destination is unknown.

His decision, if his tweets are shared properly, seems to be a punishment for Germany.

“Germany pays Russia billions of dollars a year for fuel, and we have to protect Germany from Russia. What is this?” Trump wrote in a post.

“Also, Germany del their 2% remuneration is very bad to NATO so we are withdrawing some troops from Germany!”

His indomitable data grenade was dropped in a matter of moments in the middle of the night, but it could take years German officials fear it could undo the damage On military alliances.

Norbert Reitzen, head of the German parliament’s foreign relations committee, responded on Twitter on Wednesday, saying: “Instead of strengthening #NATO, it is weakening the alliance.

Bavarian state governor Marcus Soder, who has several U.S. bases in the region, also criticized Trump: “Unfortunately, this severely damages German-American relations. There is no military advantage. It weakens NATO and the United States.”

Not surprisingly, however, the Kremlin continues to use Europe’s concentration with great pleasure, spokesman Dmitry Peskov told CNN: “We never hid it. [we think] The fewer American solders on the European continent, the quieter they are in Europe. “

Trump is the gift that the Kremlin continues to give: his unpredictability, often in pain, but he is constantly wristed for his propaganda.

The 45th president of the United States has taken almost four years of self-serving and destructive years to reach this stage, but he is one-third of the total in the country to pull the trigger on the withdrawal of troops from Germany. Franklin D. Roosevelt, the 32nd President of the United States, envisioned it as a post-World War II decree, signaling its end. Based on common interests and shared aspirations.

Roosevelt and other leaders of his generation witnessed the worst time since huge powers clashed, driven by some wicked self-righteous people; Assuming Trump is not completely ignorant, he has chosen to ignore this obvious truth.

The problem with NATO and other US allies is that it rarely seems to be able to deter Trump from his influence. Defense Secretary Mark Asper echoed the president’s words, “Germany is the richest country in Europe. Germany can and should pay more for its defense.”

This argument will remain empty in cavernous halls NATO HQ in the thin suburbs of Brussels, where Trump promised a 2% GDP long before he took office, as claimed by General John Highten, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, commented that the fall would “encourage” US support. Its allies because it will “better distribute forces across Europe and increase the use of rotational energy.”

Asper spoke of a “strategic blockade” as some troops could move to Poland and others could end up in tiny Baltic states. And Jots Stoltenberg, NATO’s longtime optimistic secretary-general, said “the United States consulted closely with all NATO allies before today’s announcement” – although German officials were surprised for the first time a month ago to hear of a possible withdrawal.

Since taking office as US president in January 2017, Stoltenberg has consistently fought for conservative measures to cut Trump’s loose cut from NATO. Stoltenberg recently let Trump play his trumpet by announcing Trump as the last meeting of NATO leaders in Luton, England in December 2019. He will take away from the alliance’s commitment to increase GDP defense spending.

He is now trying to save the day by claiming that Trump’s decision “remains the United States’ continued commitment to NATO and European security.”

The reality is that Trump has repeatedly promised German Chancellor Angela Merkel that Germany’s sub-equivalent of defense spending at 1.3% of GDP, but not about BMW car exports and trade in general. At their first meeting at the White House in spring 2017, the president had just met Merkel, shaking hands and refusing; He shook her at breakfast at a NATO summit in 2018. And now this.

Surprisingly, Trump’s generals, despite the shortcomings of Belgium’s NATO contribution – are commanding the US military’s European command in Brussels, Germany, to improve the operational flexibility of the EU, according to EU Commander Tom Walters; At 0.93% it is even lower than in Germany.

Whatever Trump’s intentions, be it petulance or indeed a strategic pivot for Asia, as Esper has explained in recent weeks, the reality spreads to allies and goes against America’s long-term advantage; Now those European countries must look to themselves for defense – not for quick stabilization, but as a major strategic shift.

German Defense Minister Ingret Kramp-Karenbauer said it was a “sympathy” for Trump to withdraw troops from Germany, adding, “I want us to finally move faster towards a common European defense and defense policy.”

While this is not every European leader’s cup of cups or iced lattes, the work the EU has been able to handle in recent weeks suggests that as it did in four days and nights, it can compromise and overcome the huge internal differences of opinion after ing. Seven-year budget and a further thorny Covid-19 bail-out plan.

Trump has not extended an ordinary European defense deal overnight, but he has narrowed the wait until a deal is reached, and none of that is good for America right now.

While Trump is looking for friends to extend his sanctions on China and Iran, the less teased and more frustrated Europe will look to secure relations that are in line with its national security and trade interests. And these may not always be united with America.

He has simultaneously enabled Russian President Vladimir Putin, a strategic enemy who is already on the offensive, and made allies essential in the same fight. It is a double-edged sword, common to a U.S. president who insists on playing by his own rules.

The Covid-1p epidemic, which seems to be running clockwise in his presidency, if he is never taught that there is an occasional conference answer, he will probably lean towards 12,000 troops.

A new American president will be elected this November with enough time and persuasive power to repair the rift that Trump has created with his country’s allies. It won’t be easy, because Trump’s lack of confidence has mixed everyone who stood by him.

This aspect of the Atlantic shows that Trump is ignoring the weather warning in the well-publicized storm and heading for the blocked waters.
