So, see if you can follow this logic.
President Trump calls out NATO countries – especially Germany – for paying Russia billions for natural gas and oil.
Thanks to Sundance at The Conservative Treehouse for this relevant exchange:
Stoltenberg: […] I think that two World Wars and the Cold War taught us that we are stronger together than apart.
Trump: But how can you be together when a country is getting its energy from the person you want protection against or from the group that you want protection?
Stoltenberg: Because we understand that when we stand together, also in dealing with Russia, we are stronger. I think what we have seen is that —
Trump: No, you’re just making Russia richer. You’re not dealing with Russia. You’re making Russia richer.
Of course, the breakfast meeting also included Trump’s takedown of Germany for their energy agreement with Russia. But I won’t repost the video since it’s in the previous post.
But, here’s the nub of what he said:
Well, I have to say, I think it’s very sad when Germany makes a massive oil and gas deal with Russia, where you’re supposed to be guarding against Russia, and Germany goes out and pays billions and billions of dollars a year to Russia. So we’re protecting Germany. We’re protecting France. We’re protecting all of these countries. And then numerous of the countries go out and make a pipeline deal with Russia, where they’re paying billions of dollars into the coffers of Russia.
Now, to a normal, functioning human being, this entire exchange (which you can see in its entirety at The Conservative Treehouse) clearly shows President Trump calling out NATO for not only their reliance on Russia, but for making Russia rich.
Notice, I said to a normal, functioning human.
But to Nancy Pelosi?
THREAD: @realDonaldTrump’s brazen insults & denigration of one of America’s most steadfast allies, Germany, is an embarrassment. His behavior this morning is another profoundly disturbing signal that the President is more loyal to President Putin than to our NATO allies.

Seriously, this woman is a halfwit.
If Nancy Pelosi took a Rorschach test, it wouldn’t matter what the ink blots looked like, all she’d see is Trump and Putin.
He bashed Germany for making Russia rich. How is that being "more loyal to President Putin" — you dried up, babbling, incoherent crank. https://t.co/ITS3C8Zx4q

If President Trump was more loyal to Vladimir Putin than he is to NATO, why would he take issue with NATO making Russia rich?
The fact is, President Trump does not want the European nations beholden to Vladimir Putin.
And becoming economically dependent on Russia for their energy makes them beholden to Putin.
And only a halfwit like Nancy Pelosi wouldn’t be able to grasp this simple reality.
If Trump were really more loyal to Putin, I’m guessing he’d be cool with Russia controlling Western Europe’s energy supply.
But Trump clearly isn’t cool with that.
What’s more, one of the benefits of making America an energy-producing powerhouse – which President Trump is doing – is we can actually assist our NATO allies by selling them natural gas. And by doing so, preventing them from being under the thumb of Vladimir Putin.
So Trump standing up against Russia is not only for the benefit of NATO; it’s benefits US interests as well.
That to me sounds like the exact opposite of “the President is more loyal to Putin than to our NATO allies.”
You’d have to be the stupidest person on the planet if Trump saying “You’re not dealing with Russia. You’re making Russia richer” leads you to conclude that “Trump is loyal to Putin.”
But then again, we are talking about Nancy Pelosi here.
And Nancy Pelosi is a Grade-A halfwit.
