US Foreign Policy under Trump

#1

Post by Till Eulenspiegel » Mon Jun 04, 2018 7:41 am

This interview is making big waves in Germany. The Germans (and any other country ) don't like it when foreign diplomats meddle in domestic politics.

Steve Bannon has been spending a LOT of time in the last 3 months in Europe.
Posted an article under the Bannon thread Friday which covered not just his involvement in Italy's recent vote, but more generally.

No country likes it when foreign diplomats or foreign governments meddle in their domestic politics. Most countries, Germany included, are generally perfectly happy to meddle in the domestic politics of other countries.

The ambassador in question, however, is most certainly a cretin.

Touché.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2018/ ... y-hegemony
Emmanuel Macron has called on other members of the G7 to stand up to Donald Trump’s trade policies in the face of what he described as the threat of a new US “hegemony”.

The French president was speaking alongside the Canadian prime minister, Justin Trudeau, who is hosting the G7 summit in Quebec amid sharp disagreements between the US president and the six other leaders of industrialized liberal democracies over trade, climate change and the nuclear deal with Iran.

Macron called on other G7 leaders not to water down a joint communique at the end of the summit, at the expense of shared values, simply in an effort to win Trump’s signature, warning that a “G6 plus one” outcome was possible.
