Most Germans think Europe can defend itself without USA help

But for - in modern history, the things are actually different. But despite the usual blizzard of off-the-cuff, contradictory Trumpian statements, a couple of truths did become obvious. But in practice, the results were totally vice versa, and it gave rise to a clear and unequivocal isolation for Trump's America.Perhaps if it was possible for him and his assistants to foresee, they would have cancelled or delayed the journey to Europe.

In the statement, released on 19 July, the Montenegrin government claims that the country, as a new North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member and EU candidate country, contributes to peace and stability "not only on the European continent but, along with the American soldiers in Afghanistan". "Get ready, Russia, because (American missiles) will be coming, nice and new and smart!" he tweeted over a transient crisis in Syria three months ago.

Donnelly flatly says the US isn't doing enough to guard against the election interference effort intelligence agencies have warned remains ongoing.

The move would also benefit US taxpayers.

"What's more surprising, the fact that the President Trump is calling them out on that or that previous presidents haven't?" he asked. And it's true, apart from the bit about the "witch hunt". The Post recently reported that US military commanders are anxious that if they had to quickly move USA troops east to head off a military conflict with Moscow, "the most powerful military in the world could get stuck in a traffic jam" as "Humvees ... snarl behind plodding semis on narrow roads" and "U.S. tanks ... crush rusting bridges too weak to hold their weight". A day later, Trump said he had misspoken when he sounded as if he had accepted Putin's denials that Russian Federation had interfered in the 2016 presidential election. "I don't see any reason why it would be".

Speaking on the state of world affairs, Chancellor Angela Merkel took a shot at President Trump leadership, saying Europe could not longer "rely on the superpower of the United States". He also suggested a moral equivalence between Russian Federation and the United States, and said that the USA was just as much to blame for current poor relations as Russian Federation. "It's really extraordinary that Donald Trump has to be the person to point out that the emperor in Europe has no clothes".

There was a huge backlash in the USA because even Trump's own supporters were dismayed to see him value the Russian dictator's words more highly than those of American intelligence professionals. So should the US military. Russian Federation would also be unable to resupply Montenegro in a war.

The alliance with the U.S. remains "strong and permanent", the statement added.

"He is the president of America, but he has not done too well with his statements lately", Kovacevic shrugged.

The situation is so dire that French President Emmanuel Macron, who at the start of Trump's job claimed he would not allow the United States to be isolated, is now in the front line of opposition against Trump.

The good news is that though the populists and ultra-nationalists are on the rise in the West (including Russia), raw military power still plays a minor role in the relations of the great powers. They only have to defend that country if it actually gets attacked.
