Trump’s ‘America First’ rhetoric had an impact in 2018 — in 2019, European allies like Emmanuel Macron and Angela Merkel are learning not to rely on the U.S.
Emmanuel Macron suggests building its own army to protect Europe against the U.S., China and Russia. But it was Germany in World Wars One & Two – How did that work out for France? They were starting to learn German in Paris before the U.S. came along. Pay for NATO or not!

I strongly disagree.
It has morphed into other forms of extremism and the threat is very much alive. https://t.co/wrRMTBJ4tX
