Thanks to RHT for this story
Before we start, I have to say I loved this blunt tell it like is talk from the President. It’s honest, bold and frankly long overdue. He puts the bureaucrats in their place and they have idea how to handle him, because he’s right. This is a gotcha moment, especially for Germany who has been double dealing on us with Russia.
“PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, I have to say, I think it’s very sad when Germany makes a massive oil and gas deal with Russia, where you’re supposed to be guarding against Russia, and Germany goes out and pays billions and billions of dollars a year to Russia. So we’re protecting Germany. We’re protecting France. We’re protecting all of these countries. And then numerous of the countries go out and make a pipeline deal with Russia, where they’re paying billions of dollars into the coffers of Russia.
So we’re protect you against Russia, but they’re paying billions of dollars to Russia, and I think that’s very inappropriate. And the former Chancellor of Germany is the head of the pipeline company that’s supplying the gas. Ultimately, Germany will have almost 70 percent of their country controlled by Russia with natural gas.
So you tell me, is that appropriate?” READ THE WHOLE CONVERSATION – Trump really called them on a ripoff that’s gone on far too long.
