Make that $135 billion.

Actually got deadbeat NATO allies to cough up some money.
Took out Solomeini.
Made the democrats look like the moral rejects they are.
Negotiated a more favorable trade deal with Mexico and Canada.
Has begun the process of getting better trade deals out of China.
Has cut onerous, duplicative and in some cases, contradictory regulations.
Do you want to keep going, or do you need to go in to a corner and cry in your blankie?

The NATO secretary general publicly praised President Trump for his success in getting other nations to pay their fair share.

However, despite Trump’s most recent complaints, Europe’s defence expenditure – after a long decline – has been on the rise since 2014–15 (before he came to office), as the security outlook in Europe darkened following Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea. Moreover, most European countries, including those that Trump has picked out to reprimand, have announced plans to increase their defence budgets. For instance, Norway, which has received a pre-NATO Summit letter from Trump, had already announced plans to increase its defence budget from US$6bn in 2017 to US$7.8bn in 2020.



And the US owes the UN over $1.3 billion

I'm not sure what planet you are living on but it is the Democrats and the Media (redundancy alert) that have been parroting the Iranian talking points. Only a blind partisan would be saying otherwise. But by all means, please keep posting your nonsensical blather, it just continues to show your hatred and ignorance.

OK...Can we PLEASE put a stop to this?...

Multiple members of this forum have responded DIRECTLY TO YOU that we (myself included) have issues with Trump...His tweets, his boisterousness, his obnoxiousness, his over-the-top rhetoric, etc...

..and yet almost every time you enter a new topic, YOU pretend like you haven't seen any of these issues and immediately call everyone "blind Donald worshipers"...It's like saying, "Hey everybody! I don't give a sh*t about what you've told me! I'm just gonna live with my pre-ordained fantasy version of all of you!!!"...

The NATO secretary general has publicly expressed gratitude to President Trump for the increased defense spending. No doubt he will be drummed out of the Resistance for his failure to deny reality.

You can't even admit an obvious Trump success as acknowledged by the NATO leader how can you be taken seriously when you claim President Trump has failed at everything? The answer is, you cannot be taken seriously.

it is against the constitution to target a military leader of another country unless we are at war. most of the westerners this guy killed or held in jail was 40 years ago.
there was no imminent danger so at the very least trump shud have-and still shud -go to congress for the ok to proceed militarily.
we should not drag another country into an act of aggression against someone else unless we have proof he attacked America such as bin Laden.

paying our way at nato is a good thing but he should not put strings on it or act like a fool with our allies while masturbating to pictures of his BFF's Put n Kim.
note: last line is a metaphor.


a couple of the countries he admonished had already upped their authorizations for nato.
he's playing footsy with the very regime who attacked us September 11, 2001, why? for a few cents cheaper oil yet he says we are oil independent.

he has no deal with n korea yet lies and says he does. he's even managed to get russia stirred up more by escalating warmongering w iran
