Trump just accused Germany of colluding with Putin in unhinged Twitter attack

President Trump just ended the first round of meetings at the summit for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and wasted no time before taking to Twitter to stun the world with an absurd accusation against our German allies.


NATO, the defensive military alliance that has maintained the balance of geopolitical power for the past fifty years has recently fallen under unprecedented stress as President Donald Trump has suddenly turned on our allies, straining our international relationships with confrontational statements and reckless economic tariffs against European goods.

Trump’s tweet reiterated what he had said earlier this morning, accusing Germany of being “totally controlled” by Russia since Germany – like the rest of Eastern Europe – purchases so much Russian natural gas.

The accusation is very telling, since it is Donald Trump who the majority of the world suspects of being “controlled” by Russia.

Trump himself has been accused of colluding with Russian agents to interfere in the 2016 election and of being blackmailed by Russian military intelligence with a video of him engaging in lewd acts with prostitutes while on his 2013 trip to Moscow.

Since taking office, Trump’s foreign policy has been everything Vladimir Putin could have asked for – unraveling the bonds of NATO, economic instability in the West, and a blind eye to Russian human rights violations at home and abroad.

It is absolutely preposterous for Trump to accuse Germany of being Russia’s puppet – but as the old adage goes, accuse your enemies of what you yourself are guilty of.
