WASHINGTON 

After 18 months of Donald Trump's "America First" presidency, European leaders meeting with him next week fear the United States may change its traditional course and begin to bring American troops home from the continent.

It comes as nations, especially in Eastern Europe, are lobbying the United States to increase the number of troops on the continent as they worry about combating an increasingly aggressive Russia.

Trump has talked about bringing U.S. troops home from around the globe since he was on the campaign trail espousing a strategy he dubbed "America First” but he has yet to act

Trump did say something about if foreign countries want our troopsto serve in their countries, then they should pay us for that privilege.  I'm hoping that's something he follows through on before too long.

Bring home ALL U.S. troops and end ALL foreign aid to EVERY country.

Yes, (ESPECIALLY Israel) for all you RINO, FAKE-CONSERvATIVE Republicans who somehow think it is written into our founding papers that we have to support Israel.

it will be a sad day for you, I bet. I mean think about IT, one less thing to hate him Donald Trump about !(dont worry though , you will always have the "israel foreign aid issue" to be angry about ! )

 Bringing 35,000 troops back from Europe (+ tanks, jeeps etc) would really make him a tad more Ron Paulish...than libertarians in General would like to admit. But ... I imagine Ron Paul would be delighted, !! 

(and yes I do agree with you, there is ZERO in the constitution that says we must suport Is-ra-el )

...certainly would never have supported a CONSTITUTIONALIST statesman like Ron Paul.

Apparently you are fully on board with your government stealing our money and giving it away to foreign nations.

That also means you don't care too much for our Constitution either since RE-Distribution of OUR wealth to other nations is very UN-Constitutional behavior.

..AND I did support Ron Paul (weren't you on Daily Paul?? , and if so for how long ? ) However, there are some things that Trump is getting done that JUST NEEDS TO GET DONE. And while i could easily make a list of what I am in disagrement with him on, I feel that with the media 90%+ against him , why not focus on the POSITIVE ACTIONS HES DONE FOR  AMERICA for now. In 2 years, or 6 months I may become a bit more critical, however ...I have a list of whats most important , and so far he is doing that list .  Have you seen the jobs report? business optimism highest since like the 70's or 80's ? and most importantly NAFTA WILL EITHER GO BY BY , or become an actual agreement that is GOOD FOR AMERICA. I could go on..... 

 

(btw-- yes I would love to abolish the FED , end The IRS, and bring all our troops home, and end foreign aid...However , these things take time, and for now I will wait to see where he goes wtih the list he is working on, He has supported auditing the FED , re-opening a REAL 9-11 invetigation, etc..so well see....)

...from all the bets I won to prove it.

I knew FULL WELL that ignorant, sheeple STAR-STRUCK America could not resist Trump's celebrity.

That includes plenty of rather non-political democrats who were STAR-STRUCK with Trump's celebrity and fueled by a National Enquirer-type of motivation, they could simply not resist voting for him.

POLICY HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH TRUMP WINNING THE PRESIDENCY!!!

It is a reflection of the IDIOTS that pervade the population.

But they can't really help it since all their learning came from GOVERNMENT-RUN Public schooling designed to keep them stooooopid and...

...American Television Culture which has the intellectual depth of a mud puddle.

I never said Trump is doing everything wrong and SOME things he claims to wants to do sound pretty good to me.

But look at the people he has chosen for his administration like...

John Bolton...REALLY??? The WAR-MONGER of the world.

Mike Pence...another war-monger and FAKE "Christian" if there ever was one.

Mike Pompeo...NO one who ever worked for the CIA should be considered.  About the dirtiest organization on earth and TRAITORS to the United States who drone-bomb and attack foreign naions willy-nilly with no permission from the CONGRESS.

Trump WILL win again I have no doubt.

But LIBERTY will not win.

Because fundamentally I don't see Trump as a Consitutional thinker.

I will ALWAYS vote fr principled people and that means having to live with the UNPRINCIPLED people the American sheeples put into office.

But as least I won't ever have to say; "I voted for the lesser of two evils."

a short excerpt:

Trump has criticized international alliances and organizations, even the United Nations, and European allies fear he is less committed to their security and NATO as previous U.S. presidents. Last month, he abruptly refused to sign a joint statement with the G-7, the world's largest economies following a meeting in Canada.
