  1. Trump is not behind NATO, so Macron is right when he calls NATO brain-death. Turkey is very important for the NATO because of it´s strategic position. So Europe has to stay friends with Turkey otherwise the NATO does not even have strength apart from being brain-death.

  6. Can’t wait to see what kind of garbage this criminal president Donald J Trump is going to bark and vomit in London. Definitely he will invite Vladimir Putin and Erdogan to join the US at the same table! Has he known that NATO was established to prevent RUSSIA from invasion of Europe?

  7. Prepper: Na-To: North-Atlantic-Treaty-Organization

    Frump: Why does it need a treaty?
    Prepper: To protect us from the Russians.
    Frump: But the Russians are out friends. Putin told me so.

  8. All the Trump haters on this platform, so funny…. You Tube is a bias platform who sensors any and all Conservative views! ?youtube

  9. Theres Goodbye to Johnson!!!!!!! Ha Ha The Trump Curse!!!!!!!! Labour will blow our the right wing Conservatives….JC4PM

  10. Should they allow this conman to go to the NATO Summit? We all know he'll just embarrass and weaken the United States again.

  11. President Goldfinger going to England? Great. Maybe he'll take time off for a game of golf with Michael Steele and be exposed as the golf-cheat he is.

  12. Boris Johnson has asked Donnie not to say anything while the clown visits Britain…hilarious! That's like asking a 2 year old to not cry. Good luck with that.

  13. Oh good God. UK, brace yourselves – the Trump circus is coming to town. Is it too late to close your borders? Quick build a wall to keep the American's out.

  17. Yes that is what Trump has done to the US standing in the world regarding NATO on being Brain Dead!
    Hint, hint Donald Trump!!! Just quit your job NOW like Nixon did.
    Does one think Trump will not comment on the British Election, like he was asked not to, think again. He will screw it up!

  18. Trumps prep for the summit will involve ignoring good advice, rubbishing the best intelligence in the world, rehearsing Putin's talking points and eating McDonalds and drinking Diet Coke, just like everyday.

  19. Hey good morning welcome back to morning Joe. We have breaking News Trump's on his way to NATO, Yes, it is true it was planned a year ago, but anything here under 12 months ago is Breaking News here on morning Joe.
    I would never lie. You can trust me… Really I said you can trust me I used to be in Congress, would I lie to you ???


    We are living in a world of Confusion and it's about time we call out these fraudulent Representatives of this country.. I've recently written this song that does just that.. please share..

  21. While I think Boris Johnson is a privileged buffoon, he was correct in stating the recent London Bridge terrorist was on early release. He received a 15 year sentence for terrorism, and after two years was released without even being interviewed to see if he was reformed. That is not just "Boris Johnson is saying …". that is Boris Johnson is stating a known fact. If it were not for Corbyn's well known bigotry and support of terrorists, I'd be hoping that Labour won this time around.

  22. All those deluded enough to think that Trump has any respect outside the bozos in the US should watch how the British laugh at Trump's stupidity.

  23. Bonking Boris wants Old orange fat guts to shut his orange mouth or bugger the election for him. Old obese would not even know where London is

  24. The only thing orange man will prep is his fricking ugly hair,can’t prep the jerks brain because he has no brain

  25. During the 2016 presidential campaign, Republican candidate Donald Trump promised he would eliminate the nation’s debt in eight years. Instead, his budgets would add $9.1 trillion during that time. It would increase the U.S. debt to $29 trillion according to Trump's budget estimates.

    Candidate Trump had two strategies to reduce the U.S. debt. He promised to grow the economy 6% annually to increase tax revenues. But once in office, he lowered his growth estimate to 3.5% to 4%.

    These projections are above the 2-3% healthy growth rate. When growth is more than that, it creates inflation. Too much money chases too few good business projects. Irrational exuberance grips investors. They create a boom-bust cycle that ends in a recession. Trump’s Fiscal Year 2020 budget lowered annual growth rates down to between 2.4% and 2.9% annually.

    Trump promised to achieve 4% growth with tax cuts. In his first 100 days, he released the outline of what would become the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. It cut the corporate tax rate from 35% to 21% beginning in 2018. The top individual income tax rate drops to 37%. It doubles the standard deduction and eliminates personal exemptions. The corporate cuts are permanent, while the individual changes expire at the end of 2025.

    But Trump's tax cuts won't stimulate the economy enough to make up for lost tax revenue. According to the Laffer curve, tax cuts only do that when the rates were above 50%. It worked during the Reagan administration because the highest tax rate was 70%.

    Trump’s second strategy is to “eliminate waste and redundancy in federal spending.” He demonstrated cost-consciousness in his campaign. He used his Twitter account and rallies instead of expensive television ads. He outlined his cost-cutting strategies in his book, "The Art of the Deal."

    Trump was right that there is waste in federal spending. The problem isn't finding it. Both Presidents Bush and Obama did that. The problem is in cutting it. Each program has a constituency that lobbies Congress. Eliminating these benefits loses voters and contributors. Congress will agree to cut spending in someone else’s district, but not in their own.

    Any president must cut into the biggest programs to make an impact on the debt. More than two-thirds of government spending goes to mandatory obligations made by previous Acts of Congress. For FY 2020, Social Security benefits cost $1 trillion a year, Medicare costs $679 billion, and Medicaid costs $418 billion. The interest on the debt is $479 billion. 

    To lower the debt, military spending must also be cut. The most Obama spent was $855 billion in FY 2011. The most Bush spent was $666 billion in FY 2008. Instead of cutting, Trump is breaking all those records. Military spending rose to $989 billion in FY 2020.

    What's left after mandatory and military spending? Only $676 billion to pay for everything else. That includes agencies that process the Social Security and other benefits. It also includes the necessary functions performed by the Justice Department and the Internal Revenue Service. You'd have to eliminate it all to make a dent in the $1.1 trillion deficit. You can't reduce the deficit or debt without major cuts to defense and mandated benefit programs. Cutting waste isn't enough.

    Trump has a cavalier attitude about the nation’s debt load. During the campaign, he said the nation could "borrow knowing that if the economy crashed, you could make a deal.”5 He added, “The United States will never default because you can print the money." 

    Trump thinks about the national debt as he does personal debt. A 2016 Fortune magazine analysis revealed Trump's business is $1.11 billion in debt.6 That includes $846 million owed on five properties. These include Trump Tower, 40 Wall Street, and 1290 Avenue of the Americas in New York. It also includes the Trump Hotel in Washington D.C. and 555 California Street in San Francisco. But the income generated by these properties easily pays their annual interest payment. In the business world, Trump's debt is reasonable.

    But sovereign debt is different. The World Bank compares countries based on their total debt-to-gross domestic product ratio. It considers a country to be in trouble if that ratio is greater than 77%. The U.S. ratio is 104%. That's the $21.516 trillion U.S. debt as of September 28, 2018, divided by the $20.658 trillion nominal GDP.

    So far, this high ratio hasn't discouraged investors. America is the safest economy in the world. It has the largest free market economy and its currency is the world's reserve currency. Even during a U.S. economic crisis, investors purchase U.S. Treasurys in a flight to safety. That's one reason why interest rates plunged to 200-year lows after the financial crisis. Those falling interest rates meant America's debt could increase, but interest payments remained stable at around $266 billion. 

    But that changed in late 2016. Interest rates began rising as the economy improved. As a result, interest on the nation's debt will double in four years.

    The United States also has a massive fixed pension expense and health insurance costs. A business can renege on these benefits, ask for bankruptcy, and weather the resultant lawsuits. A president and Congress can't cut back those costs without losing their jobs at the next election. As such, Trump's experience in handling business debt does not transfer to managing the U.S. debt. 

    Trump is wrong to assume that the United States could simply print money to pay off the debt.8 It would send the dollar into decline and create hyperinflation. Interest rates would rise as creditors lost faith in U.S. Treasurys. That would create a recession. He's also wrong in thinking that he could make a deal with our lenders if the U.S. economy crashed. There would be no lenders left. It would send the dollar into a collapse. The entire world would plummet into another Great Depression. 

    At first, it seemed Trump was lowering the debt. It fell $102 billion in the first six months after Trump took office.9 On January 20th, the day Trump was inaugurated, the debt was $19.9 trillion. On July 30, it was $19.8 trillion. But it was not because of anything he did. Instead, it was because of the federal debt ceiling.

    On September 8, 2017, Trump signed a bill increasing the debt ceiling. Later that day, the debt exceeded $20 trillion for the first time in U.S. history. On February 9, 2018, Trump signed a bill suspending the debt ceiling until March 1, 2019.10 It was $22 trillion. In just two years,Trump has overseen the fastest dollar increase in the debt of any president.

    Trump's Fiscal Year 2020 budget projects the debt would increase $5 trillion during his first term.11 That's as much as Obama added while fighting a recession. Trump has not fulfilled his campaign promise to cut the debt. Instead, he's done the opposite.

    2019 may be seeing the national deficit exceeding $1 trillion. This could be the result of Trump’s $1.5 trillion tax cuts done in 2017. These cuts are a loss to government revenues. When the national deficit increases, the government needs to borrow more since its income cannot cover its expenditures. Such action increases sovereign debt.

  26. Lol glad to know mainstream media’s hatred of progressive working class candidates goes beyond America. The only mention of British politics in god knows how long and they manage to get a dig in on Corbyn

  27. Don’t understand the need for NATO, the old enemy is gone, why continue to spend trillions on weapons, who is the new enemy now?

  28. The conservative party in Britain is nearly as corrupt as the GOP. Started when Bush and Tony Blair teamed up on the Iraq war. That war was a big money maker for the wealthy establishment in both countries.

  29. as an american i want to say to all NATO members i am terribly terribly sorry for our president and i wish to god he wasnt ours. if he pulls out of NATO and the alliance crumbles i will seriously consider leaving my country because i dont want to live in a nation run by this man where we just abandon our allies without any consideration or thought or communication amongst us. just know that atleast to me I believe in the alliance and I want it to be strong and successful and have the best coordination trust and willingness to just put all our common good together for the betterment of all

  30. I suppose Trump will criticise the leaders for not celebrating the 70th anniversary earlier.

  31. He is not welcomed here in Europe. Every time he comes, he insultes us and spit on us…even his best friend Putin have more respect for us

  32. Dear United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland,

    My administration will be arriving shortly to attend the 2019 NATO summit. I look forward to the occasion.

    Your ally, the United States of America.

  33. Trump going to NATO is a total waste of time for world peace. He betrays allies, evidence the Kurds, Syria, while embracing enemies like North Korea, and Russia.
