As President Trump heads to Europe next month for the NATO summit and then a historic meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, his personal attacks on the European Union and other pillars of the Western order are overshadowing his own administration’s attempts to reassure allies that the United States still believes in the transatlantic project it has led since the 1940s.

During a private meeting at the White House in late April, Trump was discussing trade with French President Emmanuel Macron. At one point, he asked Macron, “Why don’t you leave the E.U.?” and said that if France exited the union, Trump would offer it a bilateral trade deal with better terms than the E.U. as a whole gets from the United States, according to two European officials. The White House did not dispute the officials’ account, but declined to comment.

Let’s set aside for a moment the point that Trump’s proposal reveals a basic lack of understanding of Macron’s views and those of the people who elected him. This is an instance of the president of the United States offering an incentive to dismantle an organization of America’s allies, against stated U.S. government policy.

Trump is acting more and more like a mafioso. 

Using money and the promise of power to break up unions and coerce powerful people into falling in line with his agenda. 

And of course, we all realize that this is exactly why Putin helped Trump to win the White House, right? 

I mean the reality that this is all payback for that favor in 2016 is pretty well established by now, right? 

Because if that is still up for discussion people are simply demonstrating an inability to connect the dots. 

Every news agency in the country should now be referring to Trump as “Putin’s puppet” and no longer degrade the title of “President” by using it to describe him.

    I don’t know about anyone else, but I quit paying attention to network television news long ago. Very little investigative journalism like that of my youth, just fluff “entertainment,” and now we’ve ended up HERE.

    I thought he already told NATO to eff off.
    Seriously, who can keep track anymore without a scorecard?

      You can’t keep track because he “changes” his mind the next day. in other words, someone with half a brain tells him he screwed up again, so he goes back on what he first said.

      No wonder Macron got little donnie’s number real fast and I have no doubt Macron told other leaders of the E.U. what happened.

    As usual, Gryphen is wrong. Trump is not doing this as payback for Putin helping him win the election. He is doing this because he has probably been under Soviet/Russian control since his first trip there in 1987. Why did an oligarch pay 95 million for a trump owned mansion that trump had paid 40 million for only four years earlier? Why did Deutsche Bank loan money to trump when no one else would? DB has ties to Russian oligarchs. Could it be Russian was investing in an asset, helping prop him up as a successful businessman? He definitely fits the definition of useful idiot.
