'With Friends Like That Who Needs Enemies: Tusk Lashes Out At Trump

European Council President Donald Tusk derided US President Donald Trump over his administration’s “capricious assertiveness” and called on the EU to unite on the Iran nuclear agreement and tariffs.
Speaking at a Western Balkans summit in Sofia, Bulgaria on Wednesday, Tusk didn’t hold back in his assessment of the US, saying EU members should unite to face “a new phenomenon - the capricious assertiveness of the American administration.”

Tusk pointed to some of Trump’s latest decisions before concluding, “someone could even think with friends like that, who needs enemies.” He also suggested the EU owes Trump a debt of gratitude for helping Europe to drop “all illusions”.

Tusk’s comments come amid increasingly souring relations between the EU and US, over trade disagreements, the Iran nuclear deal, and the US Embassy’s relocation to Jerusalem.

1. This is a good thing

And about damned time. Western Europe has been sucking off us since the end of the second world war.

I personally think it is time for us to withdraw all US forces from Western Europe and pull out of NATO then forge new defense pacts with Eastern Europe.

As far as Iran goes they can not stop what we are going to do to them. They have become very impotent on the world stage and their concerns are not ours anymore.

2. The "president" of the "European Council" is denouncing the President of the United States?

OOOOO, I'm shaking in my boots!

Did you muslim masters approve of this statement, or did they dictate it to you, numbnuts?

Go ahead, side with Iran.
That will not save you.
Europistan is being invaded, and is meekly bending over for their next reaming!

Thank you sir, may I have another?
