The liberal world order put together after World War II is the globalists’ crown jewel.
International organizations were set up to leech off the United States while eroding the nation’s sovereignty.
But Donald Trump just obliterated the world order with one piece of paper.
President Trump is set to attend a NATO summit in Europe next month.
Ahead of the gathering, President Trump warned the leaders of NATO members that unless they met their obligation to spend two percent of GDP on national defense the United States would reconsider its troop deployments in Europe.
The New York Times reports:
The president’s complaint is that many NATO allies are not living up to the commitment they made at their Wales summit meeting in 2014 to spend 2 percent of their gross domestic product on national defense. American presidents have long complained about the lack of burden-sharing by NATO member countries, but Mr. Trump has taken that criticism much further, claiming that some of the United States’ closest allies are essentially deadbeats who have failed to pay debts to the organization, a fundamental misunderstanding of how it functions.
The Trump administration has already reportedly been analyzing a large-scale withdrawal of American forces from Germany, after Mr. Trump expressed surprise that 35,000 active-duty troops are stationed there and complained that NATO countries were not contributing enough to the alliance.
In the letter, Mr. Trump told Ms. Merkel that Germany also deserves blame for the failure of other NATO countries to spend enough: “Continued German underspending on defense undermines the security of the alliance and provides validation for other allies that also do not plan to meet their military spending commitments, because others see you as a role model.”
President Trump’s supporters were thrilled at this development.
For the first time in decades, an American President was acting in the best interests of the nation and not the “liberal world order.”
