Why are Euros so triggered by Trump?

I get that some don't like his style, but Americans dislike a lot of world leaders yet somehow avoid the type of angst that roils the Euro soul when Trump is but mentioned. My theory is that the Euros are mad that Trump has called them on their lies and deceit over defense spending for NATO, and nothing galls a thief like being called on their theft. Trump is like big daddy who slapped the Euro hand for dipping into the proverbial cookie jar, and Euros are so many sulking children.

  • Agreed. People in the UK held anti-Trump protests when he was elected. I'm from Scotland and couldn't remotely understand why they were getting so invested. I have a Trump hat that I wear around purely because people here get so triggered by it with no real reason to.

  • Obviously, Trump is not interested in appeasing anyone. Big change from the previous administration!

  • Some of the European politicians are run by Soros.( www.efddgroup.eu/.../how-many-meps-are-colluding-and-in-the-pocket-of-george-soros)

    There is a list with the parliamentarians in the EU parliament that are actually linked to Soros (through NGOs or paid education at some point, book publishing, so on): starting page 51 here: legacy.gscdn.nl/.../soroskooptbrussel.pdf

    Soros does not like Trump and wants him down because Trump opposes the brainwashing politics done through NGOs and puppet politicians in the US and EU. you cannot control US entirely, means that things will not always go your way.

    Of course they will scream against Trump.
    Subsequently some of the population in Europe believes in that rhetoric. BUT "some" is not "all". Not even vast majority, they are not many, but simply loud and aggressive.

    I like Trump. He is an idiot, but an idiot that wants to clean things up a bit. He is not perfect, but he's pointing out problems he sees.

    Another example of how the reality is painted differently would be with the Brexit. It was voted for UK to leave the EU.
    Vote = we do as people say.
    Horrible actions that are unacceptable took place after the vote when media started calling the voters stupid, making articles on them, bashing them, presenting them as losers. It was something worth of communist eras, when people were not allowed to have different opinions.

    Besides that, there are some that still push for Britain to stay. Why, when it was already voted to get out?

    Based on the intense coverage the "stay" people get in the media, you'd think that there are no people that actually want to leave anymore.
    Well WRONG!
    Next week, on Sunday, we have Euro elections. Countries will get to elect by popular vote, the parties (and their candidates) that they find fit to represent them in the EU Parliament. (UK will vote on Thursday, while rest of countries on 26th of May)
    Seems that Brexit supporting party will get the majority of seats for the UK.
    What that says: A big FUCK YOU! to the media covering anti-Brexit themes 24/7, to Soros, to NGOs and everyone that tried to paint the people that voted for Brexit as stupid.

    The same happens all over Europe. There are two important political families in Europe: socialists (S&D) including the socialist parties of each country of Europe and European people's party (PPE) including the democrats and liberals (by case).
    these upcoming EU elections are set to be a big blow for the PPE with people losing trust in the PPE and S&D keeping or increasing in certain countries. Also the centre-right and far-right are expecting to win some seats.

    There were general elections in Spain recently. Popular party dropped dramatically (from 137 to just 66 in the Spanish Parliament), Socialists dropped a few seats, but not that many and now there is a nationalist party named Vox taking 10% of the votes to be the first nationalist party present in the Spanish Parliament, in decades.
    Only says that it does not work with people on the long run.

    I can tell you that the most Soros brainwashed people are the ones that also hate Trump, while the others (vast majority) simply look at him as a president like any other and respect the vote of the Americans.
    The Sorosists are simply loud, but they are not that many and seem they are already over.

  • I don't know, I'm not. We're not part of NATO, so I can talk shit all I want and with a good conscience.
    Don't forget, that majority of Yankees have Euro roots.

  • I don't dislike Trump out of partisanship or left wing fellatio.

    I dislike him because he's a low-brow rabble rouser, a tard, and humanity can do so much better.

      Or to put it another way, he's a cunt.

  • At end of WW2 the American administration wasn't bitching about putting money into NATO. It was seen as a good investment against the Communist Bloc. Of course the current administration doesn't support that because they are in bed with Putin.

  • I totally agree with you. The Euros were very, very comfortable not having to meet their NATO spending obligations under Bush and Obama. (The UK and tiny Estonia were exceptions.) They were content to have the American taxpayer foot the bill for their security. Then along comes Trump and he rightly said that arrangement sucks for America, and he questioned the utility of the alliance when 24 of the 29 member countries don't spend at least 2% of their GDP on defense (as they all pledged to do). So it's very fashionable for the Euro leaders (with a few exceptions) to look down on Trump and resent his calling them out on their dereliction. Bush and Obama didn't have the balls to do it. Trump does.
