Germany’s Andrea Merkel looks like grown women, but she acts like a spoiled brat throwing a tantrum. There is a tremendous trade deficit between the U.S. and Germany. They love to send us their BMWs, their Volkswagens (they even cheated to get their Volkswagens to pass our emission tests), their Mercedes-Benz’s – but they don’t like to take our Chevrolets, and Fords, and Cadillacs. They send us lots of their BMW motorcycles but they don’t want our Harley-Davidsons.
And all of this is because our President simply asked Ms. Merkel to have her country pay their fair share in NATO to PROTECT her country. Remember, WE don’t need NATO to protect our country. Yet Merkel thinks we should foot the bill to protect hers. Go figure.
How soon they forget. After WW-II our “Marshall Plan” used American taxpayer’s dollars to help rebuild Germany. If it were not for that, the German people would still be living in rubble. To put it bluntly – we saved their asses.
Frau Merkel also conveniently forgets that when Russia built a wall through the middle of Berlin, cutting off supplies to that beleaguered city, again the American taxpayers footed the bill for the U.S. Air Force to fly in coal, food, medical supplies 27/7 in all kinds of weather through a tight Russian radar corridor to keep the Germans healthy and happy.
Also the Merkel woman seems miffed that President Trump refused to sign on to the “climate change” boondoggle which is the biggest scam ever pulled on gullible liberal pawns. America has the cleanest air in the world and it would be sheer madness to stifle our economy with more useless and costly regulations.
They say that “No good deed goes unpunished.” I think in this case it’s true. America, because of profligate spending over the last eight years, is 20 trillion dollars in debt. It’s not unfair or punitive for President Trump to ask foreign countries to contribute to their own defense and security. I doubt seriously that if America needed help, Frau Merkel’s country would be the first to step up to lend a hand. Donald Trump promised “America First.” That’s why we elected him, and he is doing his best to keep that promise.
