No. I am not defending him. Why would I?
I was pointing out that Europeans are essentially US welfare recipients. Since they cannot support themselves and have to rely on US welfare, they have no business giving foreign aid to anyone else. Certainly Europe has no business bragging about giving more foreign aid as a percentage of GDP than the US. Since they depend on US aid, European countries are basically giving away US money, not their own.
We Americans must sacrifice and forego free national healthcare, job security, generous unemployment, free education, and all the other nice things that Europeans enjoy, so that we can pay taxes for the US to provide a free defense to Europe.
A lot of Americans are tired of this, that is part of why Trump got elected. If Europeans keep refusing to pay their fair share for their own defense, and keep complaining about the US, then they should look forward to Trump’s re-election.
I can say on thing for certain: Americans are tired of European anti-Americanizim.
