John Kerry's Statement About Trump's NATO Meeting Debacle

“I’ve never seen a president say anything as strange or counterproductive as President Trump’s harangue against NATO and Germany. It was disgraceful, destructive, and flies in the face of actual American interests.

“Why would an American president whose first NATO meeting last year was a disaster, show up in Belgium this year just to prove he doesn’t understand how vital alliances have made a huge difference for the security of the United States and the lives of Europeans?”“I’d think he might remember that it was NATO that stood shoulder to shoulder with the United States after 9/11, among many other contributions.

“The President set America back this morning. He is steadily destroying our reputation in the world. He is undermining our interests. He diminishes alliances we built to safeguard an economic and strategic force that has allowed millions of people to live in freedom. Moreover, he displays a woeful ignorance of the work his predecessor's administration did to increase European defense spending.

“President Obama raised the issue in a constructive and collegial way that succeeded in securing a pledge from NATO members to increase their defense spending, without undermining the cohesion of the alliance in the process.

"Defense spending y our allies needs to, and is, being increased. Each year, nations have been increasing their contribution, even as hey have taken a hit to their own economies by putting in place tough sanctions against Russia for its behavior in Ukraine. President Obama and I worked hard using effective diplomacy — not bombast and demagoguery — to secure those sanctions in the first place. So too is European energy security an important topic for allies to discuss, even when they disagree. Instead, President Trump just insults friends who have sacrificed to hold that pressure together. There’s a time, place, and manner for raising issues with allies, and trashing them on camera in a way that calls into question the alliance itself isn’t it.

“What was on display in Brussels today was not the behavior of a strong, principled, and wise leader. Enough. This isn’t good for the United States and there are people across the aisle — as the Senate vote yesterday clearly showed — who know it and need to say it.”

Kerry was a part of an administration that apologized for America, and got played on every deal made with other countries.

Well, first Obama never apologized for America.

Second, it's Trump, despite all his hostility and bombast, is the one getting played. That's because he's the classic ignant ugly American.
