Trump, In A 180-Degree Switch, Says NATO 'No Longer Obsolete'

Quote:
President Trump on Wednesday sharply reversed his 2016 campaign stance on NATO. "I said it was obsolete; it's no longer obsolete," Trump declared, after a meeting at the White House with the alliance's secretary general, Jens Stoltenberg.
Trump had criticized NATO members for failing to spend enough on their defense, and for what he wrongly said was the North Atlantic alliance's failure to join the fight against terrorism. "I complained about that a long time ago," Trump said, "and they made a change, and now they do fight terrorism."

Come on Trumpsters, Are you ready to admit that Trump has not clue.  Another turn around.
  

"On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron."
H. L. Mencken, July 26, 1920

Flip flop?  He complained, they fixed the problem, and now it's no longer obsolete.  When Trump says frog, people jump.  He's very Trumpidential like that.

"That's MISTER Fudd to you, pinhead!"

Paul Ryan on Trump's failure to get his healthcare bill passed:  "He did all he could do.  He left it all on the field."

Elmer's observation:  "Other things on his agenda might not be as easy to accomplish as he once thought.  I mean, "he left it all on the field" and STILL LOST!"

But that wasn't the president's only about-face on Wednesday.

He told The Wall Street Journal he won't label China a currency manipulator — a drastic change from his previous stance.

In turn, Chuck Schumer, the leading Democrat in the Senate, slammed Trump for his reversal on currency manipulation, lobbing many of the same criticisms the president once made of Barack Obama.

In the same interview with the WSJ, Trump said that he believed the dollar was getting "too strong." His remark sent the currency to session lows.

Trump also told the Journal that he likes and respects Yellen and that she may hold onto her role. The president said "it's very early" in his decision process on whether he would renominate her. Previously, he said she should be "ashamed" of keeping interest rates low.

Trump also told the newspaper that the U.S. Export-Import Bank is a "very good thing," echoing comments he made to Democratic senators in February that indicated he'd support the bank. He previously said he would shut it down.

Similar examples of Trump being Trumpidential abound.  We will see many more.

This is fun.  This is a fun time.

That’s right. They will pay their share, they will do their part in troubles around the world, or we won’t pay, and NATO is no more. And they know it, and are probably praying Hillary runs again.
