posted by Hannity Staff - 7.12.18

President Trump hailed NATO member states’ decision to drastically increase their commitment to mutual defense spending Thursday, saying “NATO is much stronger now than it was two days ago.”

The President spoke with reporters after emerging from a high-stakes “emergency meeting” amongst the world leaders; praising their joint decision to ratchet up defense spending to ensure the survival of the international alliance.

“I let them know that I was extremely unhappy … It all came together in the end. It was a little tough for a while,” Trump said. “NATO is much stronger now than it was two days ago.”

The President met with the leaders of fellow member states for the two-day summit this week, addressing a host of issues such as the fight against terrorism, defense spending, and the alliance’s future.

The Commander-in-Chief departs Brussels for the UK Thursday, where he’s set to meet with British Prime Minister Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth II.

posted by Hannity Staff - 7.11.18

Former Secretary of State John Kerry unloaded on President Trump Wednesday; blasting the Commander-in-Chief’s “disgraceful” call for NATO members to pay their fair share when it comes to defense spending.

The senior Obama official called Trump’s rhetoric “destructive” despite the NATO Secretary General praising the President’s “leadership” and pledging to pay more towards the mutual defense budget.

“It was disgraceful, destructive, and flies in the face of the actual interests of the United States of America,” Kerry said in a statement, claiming Trump “set America back this morning.”

Trump met with European leaders in Brussels this week to strengthen the alliance’s commitment towards fighting terrorism, advancing Democracy, and defending member nations from the threat of Russian interference.

LIBERAL AMNESIA: Kerry Slams TRUMP’S NATO Remarks, Said the SAME THING in 2016

Former Secretary of State John Kerry didn’t hold back while discussing the President’s fiery rhetoric at the 2018 NATO Summit this week; calling Trump’s remarks “disgraceful” despite saying similar comments himself back in 2016.

Kerry unloaded on the Commander-in-Chief over his “destructive” statements regarding Germany’s Nord II gas pipeline agreement with Russia, with Trump slamming the deal as dangerous to NATO.

“I think it’s very sad when Germany makes a massive oil and gas deal with Russia where — we’re supposed to be guarding against Russia and Germany goes out and pays billions and billions of dollars a year to Russia,” Trump said.

Despite his phony outrage, Kerry made similar comments at a conference in May of 2016, slamming the same pipeline as a “dangerous” deal for Eastern European nations.

“This project has provoked a very heated debate on both sides of the Atlantic. We are convinced it would absolutely have an adverse impact on the Ukraine, Slovakia, and Eastern Europe,” said Kerry regarding the pipeline.
