U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell is talking tough against Germany, threatening to remove all U.S. troops from the country if they do not pull their own weight and fund their national defense.
Grenell explained during an interview with the German news agency DPA that the U.S. is getting exploited by the Germans, who have their defense needs subsidized while spending their money on socialism.
Ambassador Grenell: “It is offensive to assume that the U.S. taxpayers will continue to pay for more than 50,000 Americans [U.S. troops] in #Germany, but the Germans get to spend their surplus on #domestic programs.” #2percentby2024

U.S. Ambassador to Poland Georgette Mosbacher reiterated Grenell’s sentiments, suggesting that the 35,000 U.S. troops and roughly 17,000 civilian U.S. personnel in Germany should be moved to a country that actually pays their fair share, such as Poland.
Poland meets its 2% of GDP spending obligation towards NATO. Germany does not. We would welcome American troops in Germany to come to Poland.

“President Trump is right and Georgette is right,” Grenell said to the DPA. “Multiple presidents have asked the largest economy in Europe to pay for their own defense.”
Grenell is standing against the German fake news as well, which is angry that gravy train is in jeopardy of being cut off, as their nation is besieged by third-world migrants under the failed rule of globalist Angela Merkel.
There are 34,000 U.S. troops in Germany protecting Germans and Europeans. I can tell you this: @RolandNelles & @SPIEGELONLINE are wrong. Americans don’t understand why Germany isn’t meeting its NATO obligations & helping the West. And they are growing very annoyed by it. https://t.co/cHH2FaUqkZ

The legislator who is most thrilled about the Trump administration’s aggressive stance against federal welfare toward Germany is Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY). Paul has frequently been called an isolationist by the political establishment for wanting the U.S. to curtail its military empire and pull out of countries such as Germany.
Why is the United States always stuck paying for everyone when prosperous nations don’t pay their fair share? @RichardGrenell is absolutely right. We need to reevaluate commitments all over the world and decide what is best for America first! @realDonaldTrump has been doing this! https://t.co/EKKbOeqavh

Even as the U.S. goes bankrupt, the nation continues to expend resources protecting the defense of first-world nations that refuse to secure their own borders. Merkel is being forced to retire, reduced to a shaking, feeble mess, as the nation becomes more dangerous due to forced diversity and multiculturalism.
The people of Germany are turning against their leadership as migration is rocking the already tenuous Berlin coalition. Crime in Germany is way up. Big mistake made all over Europe in allowing millions of people in who have so strongly and violently changed their culture!

Trump is moving in the right direction on foreign policy, calling out Germany for their shameful dereliction on national defense, and signaling that it may be time to bring the troops back home.
