The Deep State thwarts Trump

U.S. Officials Scrambled Behind the Scenes to Shield NATO Deal From Trump

WASHINGTON — Senior American national security officials, seeking to prevent
President Trump from upending a formal policy agreement at last month’s NATO
meeting, pushed the military alliance’s ambassadors to complete it before the
forum even began.

The work to preserve the North Atlantic Treaty Organization agreement, which is
usually subject to intense 11th-hour negotiations, came just weeks after Mr. Trump
refused to sign off on a communiqué from the June meeting of the Group of 7 in Canada.

The rushed machinations to get the policy done, as demanded by John R. Bolton,
the national security adviser, have not been previously reported. Described by
European diplomats and American officials, the efforts are a sign of the lengths
to which the president’s top advisers will go to protect a key and longstanding
international alliance from Mr. Trump’s unpredictable antipathy.

Allied ambassadors said the American officials’ plan worked — to a degree.

3. Sounds like a typical fake NYT story to me

According to the editorial President Trump got much of what he was demanding.
