Skip to comments.EU council chief's riposte to Trump: Respect the allies you have

European Council President Donald Tusk told U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday to stop berating NATO allies over military investment levels ahead of what is expected to be a fraught alliance summit. [ ]
Dear America, appreciate your allies, after all you dont have that many, Tusk, a former Polish prime minister, said after a signing statement on more cooperation between the European Union and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
As European Council president, Tusk serves as the chairman when EU leaders meet at summits.
Even while in the air, Trump kept up the attack. He said in a Twitter post that a trade deficit with the European Union makes it impossible for our farmers and workers and companies to do business in Europe
and then they want us to happily defend them through NATO, and nicely pay for it. Just doesnt work!

I’m guessing this is a language barrier issue. The European word for “parasite” is apparently “ally.”
Bring it on Tusky, Bring it on
Don’t forget who saved your @ss in WWII or you all would be speaking German right now
We note that Mr. Tusk’s remarks were not in German.
Maybe it is time to pull out of Europe and let these buffoons defend themselves.
And still he has the temerity to say “after all, you don’t have that many (allies)”. Eurocrats are singularly vile and arrogant.
Yeah. He sure is one to talk.
And while many countries in Europe have friends and allies across the globe, I submit that the EU is the single most hated organization on the planet. And for good reason. They are all a bunch of smug, condescending elitists who rule without ever having been elected. I hope we do everything in our power to bring the EU crashing down as soon as possible. With Donald Tusk lying at the bottom of the heap.
Respect is a two way street.
Translation: We are so used to the US protecting our sorry asses that we don’t want to spend on defense anymore.
That’s what the Eurocrats want most. They’ve always wanted the USA to be gone so they could build their own war machine back again, and guess who would lead it.
Take note that the Eurocrats do not reflect the sentiments of their people.
Respect the allies you have
What would the reasoning be?
The implication is that they really want to be enemies and say so openly.
[[stop berating NATO allies]]
Yeah? Stop flying baBY trump balloons and respect president trump
Indeed. Two-way street.
Same with their press lying about Trump more than the US liberal media does.
Our NATO “allies” are quite happy to let the U.S. bear the financial burden of protecting them. This has been an issue going back to the early 1970’s, and still Europe is not paying up. They talk and they promise, but they don’t commit. Time for that game to end.
Or what? Will the EU leeches not take our hundreds of billions of dollars for their defense? Will they send our soldiers back to the USA after the 73 years we’ve been protecting them? Pres. Trump should start planning our exit.
It would have been great if he ended his tweet with “if this is how supposed allies treat us, who needs enemies.”
EARN IT, you first
Give it time. PJT will make it happen!
We don’t have 100 regulations on a tooth brush or on a bath towel. The EU regulations are ridiculous, expensive, exclusive and if the EU citizens had guns they could confront regulators to get their money back, plus interest and economic loss. I would ask an EU regulator for a minimum L1,000 in an economic damage compensation exchange for their intact head.
