We have all heard in similar Form already. The thing with the alleged NATO contributions would not pay Germany. And the accusation, of all places, the United States would be successes by the German Export-somehow cheated. The insults in the direction of Berlin are, in fact, nonsense, and political impudence. But this US President is, he wants to do with the truth nothing to do, even if you would jump in your face.
We have now given often enough that we have spent in the past decades, too little for defense. It is also clear that this has to do with the German history. But since unarmed pacifism has rather poor chances for the future, increase spending for some time continuously. The money but used wisely and not indiscriminately purchase any American weapons systems are thrown out the window. Even though Donald Trump would be the of course most of all.The theatre of the defense costs
If the President releases but now, for the umpteenth time the nonsense with the NATO contribution that Berlin would have to pay and supposedly the US is loaded, then the pure choice is to fight. Trump just wants to distract from the debacle of his Corona-policy, or rather from the complete Lack of such a policy. Well over 100,000 US citizens died of the disease, the Opening up of the country is premature and the surrealist Briefings in the White house during the crisis were shocking.

As the theatre comes to the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Germany just in time.

The constant threats of trade sanctions are, in the meantime, just annoying. If Donald Trump thinks that the US is exporting too little, to restore the American industry just better products. In addition, the global dominance of Google, Apple, Microsoft and Amazon in his rantings never. If, however, other products can find no market, that should not mean that they are competitive. In the case of food, you can just call: dear friends, eat your chlorine chicken and genetically modified plants alone! Or sold it to the British, who seem willing as a compromise.
but Why is Germany expensive US Fracking should buy Gas to be transported half way around the world, if it can get gas in the neighborhood? Admittedly, the deal with Russia was agreed at a time when we believed in a possible partnership. But you should put the almost-finished Nord Stream 2 gas Pipeline now, just because Trump wants it to be so? This could be geopolitical reasons anyway needed.Only the election campaign
are All of these rational arguments against the withdrawal of US troops from Germany, to make their own decisions in the energy supply, against the penal duties on French wine and German cars - enough discussed.

It is not worth to ask the question as to the reliability of the Alliance partner USA at all, let alone diplomatic seek answers to them. You should ignore make like Angela Merkel: the roar just.
