Trump on the EU and NATO

Tue, 17 Jan 2017 20:55:36 +0000

(Paul Mirengoff) The Washington Post reports that European leaders are “shocked” by statements Donald Trump has made about the EU and NATO. According to the Post, these leaders fear a “transatlantic split.” What should we make of this story from an American perspective? I think we need to analyze the EU and NATO separately. Regarding the EU, Post reporter Michael Birnbaum points to a statement by Trump that he expects the EU



If You Brexit, You Own It

(Paul Mirengoff) David Nakamura of the Washington Post reports: They are some of the biggest names in the Republican national security firmament, veterans of past GOP administrations who say, if called upon by President-elect Donald Trump, they stand ready to serve their country again. But their phones aren’t ringing. Their entreaties to Trump Tower in New York have mostly gone unanswered. In Trump world, these establishment all-stars say they are “PNG” —

In particular, it would like a trade deal. Trump seems favorable disposed to negotiating one. It makes no sense for Britain to jeopardize this state of affairs
