Trump in Europe — American and unbowed

Later they kissed and made up. But before that, at that NATO summit in Brussels, President Trump let them know who’s boss.

No more rolling over…and while he was respectful to the Queen, and contrary to the habits of his predecessor, he did not bow.

He focused on Angela Merkel, since she represents them all. He schooled her for double-dealing – that pipeline to Russia that puts Germany at the mercy of Putin who can turn off the energy spigot any time he wants, and then who ya gonna call? The United States, of course, which will have to come to the rescue, as usual.
