Neo-fascist Putin prodigy Donald "Rump" Trump left earlier this morning for the G-20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, with an initial stop in Poland. There are justifiable fears in the national security community and among our worried allies that a freelancing Rump will be snookered by Russian autocrat Vladimir Putin in Rump's
The first stop in Poland will be sold by the White (Supremacist) House as a show of support to Poland's right-wing leader Jaroslaw Kaczynski, who is bragging about Rump visiting Poland before the summit and who appears to be a tin-pot version of his guest. There will be a rally in Warsaw's Krasinski Square, where Rump will likely bellow his nativist, xenophobic message to bused-in supporters of the right-wing government.
The G-20 summit itself likely won't produce any new agreements on trade or the international economy, and in fact, may be disrupted by a loudmouthed and ignorant Rump in the same way the NATO summit was disrupted by him last May with his public scolding of our allies and refusal to commit to mutual defense. Indeed, before Rump left for Europe, he ignorantly tweeted about "bad" trade deals:
The United States made some of the worst Trade Deals in world history.Why should we continue these deals with countries that do not help us?— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 5, 2017
With Rump's attitude going in that he's going to elbow other countries for "better" trade deals, the G-20 summit may only result in a photo op for Rump to show his false, America-first "toughness" for his cult back in America.
