Everything that Donald Trump touches gets destroyed. We’ve seen this time and time again throughout his disastrous presidency, and the NATO summit was just another example of just how incapable Trump is of leading this country and performing on an international level.
Trump made a giant mess of America’s NATO alliances this week when he insulted several other world leaders and humiliated the United States. Trump left our alliances in shambles, so much that back home on American soil, the United States Department of Defense is being forced to do an immediate “full-scale damage control” operation to assess the situation and piece things back together.
According to NBC News, American military leaders reacted to Trump’s unhinged NATO behavior with “calls to their counterparts across Europe to reassure them that America will abide by its defense commitments in the region” after the president attacked his NATO allies for not spending enough for defense. One diplomatic source defended the operation and said:
One thing you need in this alliance is predictability.”
These military leaders had to reassure Europe that, despite anything that America’s idiot president says or does, America would not be scaling back its defense commitments to European countries.
Even worse, NBC News also reported that Defense Secretary James Mattis was freaking out the entire time and wanted to stay close to Trump so that he could prevent Trump from causing the meltdown that ensued. Unfortunately, Mattis had several commitments during the summit and couldn’t hold Trump’s hand the entire time. Now we’re seeing the horrific consequences of what happens when we don’t babysit our toddler POTUS.
At this point, it seems highly unlikely that America will ever regain its once-respectable standing in the world. Trump has singlehandedly made this country a joke and a nuisance to other countries.
