Trump's U-Turns

We need a sticky for this subject.

Maybe NATO isn't such a bad deal after all.

Another Trump U-turn? President-elect says US is 'strongly committed' to Nato


Donald Trump has assured the head of Nato that the US remains “strongly committed” to the military alliance, despite scathing criticisms made by the Republican during his successful election campaign.

During speeches in recent months, the President-elect has told his supporters Nato was “obsolete”, that it no longer represents good value for the US and that it wouldn’t be a bad thing if it were to dissolve.

Yet in what appears to be the latest in a string of U-turns since he rode a wave of populism to the White House, Mr Trump has reportedly rowed back on those strong criticisms of the organisation.

Nato chief Jens Stoltenberg told the BBC’s Today programme on Thursday morning that he had spoken personally to Mr Trump since the election result was declared.

“Trump clearly stated to me and other European leaders after he was elected that he will be, and the United States will remain, strongly committed to Nato, and that the security guarantees to Europe stand,” he said.

Trump said exactly what he had to say to get elected and the hordes of low educated losers and deplorables took the bait, now they will have to suffer. OR, maybe one of the rights 2nd Amendment supporters could remedy the situation.😎✊🏻🇺🇸

Precisely. Here's another article/quote: Donald Trump will retain America’s commitment to the Nato alliance, Barack Obama has said, seeking to reassure a jittery world of continued American leadership.

The Republican was often critical of Nato during the presidential election campaign, branding it “obsolete” while praising the Russian leader, Vladimir Putin, a source of alarm in foreign capitals.

But speaking in the White House before heading to Europe on his final foreign trip as president on Tuesday, Obama said Trump indicated when they met last week that he would not pull out of the decades-old alliance.

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...ato-commitment

The Trumpets voted for someone who will continue to change his position on every campaign promise from THE YUGE WALL to NATO and everything in between. Who knows? Trump may turn out to be a Democrat after all.....wouldn't that be lovely??
So far we are seeing changes in: prosecuting Clinton, refugees, deportation, Obamacare, climate change, torture, and immigration. Can't wait to see what's next?? Someone's been snookered. I wonder who?? LOL

Trump changed his mind after giving it more thought, plain and simple. Uneducated, poverty stricken and beer belly rednecks change their mind. Adapt to changing conditions.
