Trump’s Demand That Allies Pay More for Defense was Absolutely Correct

During a recent interview with “A Keene Perspective,” David Keene and Cliff May discussed President Trump’s foreign policy approach of making America’s allies pay their fair share for defense.

According to both Keene and May, this approach is one that is absolutely correct and in stark contrast to that of Obama and Biden’s.

For years NATO members were asked to contribute more and said they would eventually get around to it.

Trump demanded it, and was successful.

WATCH:

David Keene is a former Chairman of the Young Americans for Freedom and the American Conservative Union and has served as the elected President of the National Rifle Association. He worked as a campaign consultant, lobbyist, and commentator. His writing has appeared in Human Events, National Review, and many other conservative publications, and remains Editor at Large for The Washington Times after more than four years as the paper’s Opinion Editor.

Clifford D. May is the founder and president of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, a nonpartisan policy institute focusing on national security created immediately following the 9/11/01 attacks on the United States.

Keene has a regular interview show on American Action News titled “A Keene Perspective.” Be sure to check it out.

Uhhh, hmmm, this article tells only the background of the speaker in the video rather than addressing the topic mentioned in the headline. I clicked on the emailed link to read about how Trump was proven correct (yet again), not about someone who recorded a video. If the video supports the premise of the article, use it as a link for “Watch this for more information” type of thing, not for where to go to learn what the headline stated would be discussed. This is amateurish journalism at its supreme. I would have expected something like this from a junior high school kid.

TO BAD THE KIDDING DIDN’T WORK OUT, ONE WAY TO GET RID OF THE STUPID WHATEVER THE WANT TO BE. TRUMP OFFERED TO HELP CLEAN UP HER STATE AND GET RID OF THE BURNERS, LOOTERS. KILLERS AND SHE REFUSED UNTIL IT WAS TO LATE. AND HER STATE WAS BURNED TO THE GROUND. I WOULDN’T LET HER MANAGE A PIG FARM LET ALONE A STATE. SHIT UP TO HER NECK AND THE REST IS CONCRET. DEMOCRATS BLAME TRUMP FOR EVERYTHING THEY DON’T OR REFUSE TO DO THEMSELVES. ALL DEMOCRATS NEED TO BE REMOVED FROM THE OFFICE THEY KNOW NOTHING ABOUT RUNNING AND BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER INSTEAD OF DRIVING THEM CRAZY.

Seems 100% logical to me that all allies pay their fair share, it should have always been that way!

I have watched and waited for DECADES for other countries to pay their fair share that they AGREED to so many years ago and have continued to agree to over and over….but have done nothing!!! FINALLY!!! An American President who has demanded it be done and it is now being accomplished!! WAY TO GO, PRESIDENT TRUMP!!! THANK YOU!!! President Trump has DONE what he promised to do while campaigning! What other Washington politicians can say the same thing??? The promise everything – and DO nothing, except to line their own financial pockets — AT THE EXPENSE OF THE AMERICAN TAXPAYER!!!

Some of us paid income taxes, all our working lives. We have been robbed to pay for many things that did not benefit our families. These days, I particularly resent the people, who are able bodied, but draw welfare checks! we deserve to get some of our money back.
