    Hear ye! Hear ye! A new commandment from the Book of Trump has been passed down! In a press conference today, Donald Trump said this about NATO:

    “I complained about that a long time ago, and they made a change — and now they do fight terrorism,” Trump said. “I said it was obsolete. It's no longer obsolete.”

    It's unclear what changes the president was referencing.​

    So, I guess we've reached the point where up is down, black is white, and Trump believes whatever Trump didn't believe before he was elected.

    Not surprising. He's leading the creation of a coalition that will intervene in a few places.
    Also, he needs NATO to work as a deterrent for Russia.
    The good news? This is certainly suggested by both Mattis and McMaster.

    Yeah, kinda funny how anti-Russian organizations are suddenly looking good to Trump this week, now that he seems to be seeing Russia as an enemy...

    Foreign policy, where we are all brothers, like Abel and Cain.

    Russia does not have to be our enemy. It's a European state, sort of, and we share a common enemy in Islamism. Under an Admiral administration, the United States would seek to normalize Russia and forge first a friendship, then an alliance.

    Dunno what you mean by that. I've read a lot of history, and man, the European states are some of the worst guys to ally with. Islamic states have a far better record of honoring alliances (or, at least, being up-front if they don't want an alliance).

    I never liked Trump's "NATO is obsolete" statements.

    However, he was spot on about them not paying their fair share. I've been following this for years and I'm glad some world leader finally brought it up. These countries have agreed to the 2% GDP mark over and over and over again, but most never hit it.

    He's such a ****ing idiot. He'll say anything ... ANYTHING ... if he imagines it makes him look good.

    Only sycophant, sheeple, non-thinking followers can't see that they elected a pathologically lying, embarrassment into office.

    Works on multiple levels: giant flip-flopper, and tiny feet that can't fill the big shoes.

    POTUS has changed his position so much I've lost course of what he stands for at this point. Pillock.

    Even Putin is seeing how fickle the Donald is.

    Obama left his flip flops behind? That is precious, as the Donald tries to fill his shoes.

    I think I understood how NATO worked when I was twelve years old. So I hardly consider it "good news" that the President of the United States needs to have this explained to him. When it comes to coalitions, it's generally a good idea not to start out your team building by insulting and threatening your potential partners.

    I dunno, why else would you be happy that some woman lost something when it comes to a Trump thread. The only thing that comes to mind are health benefits.

    Trump was arrogant and foolish to think we didn't need NATO or the UN.

    Who cares what the orange leader says? He changes his position constantly. Sometimes in the middle of a sentence.

    So this country could be literally on fire due to Trump and you'd still just be saying "Glad she lost".

    This isn't election season anymore. Clinton is irrelevant. Look at the nonsense cheeto man is saying and doing. He's destroying this country.

    But all that matters to you is he beat Hilary.

    This country could also be literally on fire if Clinton won. The orange moron is still the lesser of two evils.
