Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the 32nd President of the United States, said something about Fascist Italy, then under Benito Mussolini, declaring war on France after the Nazi Germany invasion: “On this 10th day of June, 1940, the hand that held the dagger has struck it into the back of its neighbor. In this University founded by the first great American teacher of democracy, we send forth our prayers and our hopes to those beyond the seas who are maintaining with magnificent valor their battle for freedom.”
We know how the story ended. France was restored under Charles de Gaulle. Italy defeated and made to change sides long before the war ended. Mussolini and his mistress would be shot dead and hung upside down. The Nazis and those that were guilty of war crimes, executed. That is the power of the United States. Last night, three “world leaders,” that of Canada (Justin Trudeau), United Kingdom (Boris Johnson) and of France (Emmanuel Macron) were caught on camera mocking and gossiping about the current US President, Donald J Trump. They acted in a manner more suitable to “naughty schoolboys” than statesmen aligned to the USA and leading NATO members. What makes this worse is that one of the British Royals, Princess Anne, was part of the group and the discussion taking place right inside Buckingham Palace after the 2019 NATO Conference ended. That Royal should not even have been there, what role, tell me, does she play? What can she possibly contribute?
The reason for the immature antics that caused the US President to leave in disgust? He held a news conference which went on too long, according to the gossipers and thus caused a forty-minute delay. Really? I must ask, is this a reason to insult the US President? I would have said that it is great when any President bothers to give his time to the reporters. Russia’s Vladimir Putin is famous for doing exactly that, even taking calls from voters across his country, answering and explaining. That is why he is popular no matter what the Western mainstream liars say. Donald J Trump was not wrong to answer questions, end of story. There is an old saying, “Do upon others what you want to be done to yourself.” How would those laughing now react if Donald J Trump was found gossiping about other leaders in public behind their backs in a matter designed to be insulting? There are also historical truths. Those three that mocked the US President... I wonder, how far would their countries go without the US having their backs? Did the USA save France in her hour of need or not? Did US Forces liberate Western Europe, yes or no? Those knowing history will know that that there were 47 Americans for every one Canadian or English serviceman in the European Theatre. Who helped after the war with the Marshall Plan to rebuilt Europe? Something from which Canada benefitted immensely. Who do you run to for assistance when the “Big Bad Russian Bear” comes for you? What will you do without the USA?
And now you dare to mock the US President behind his back. And you don’t even have the manhood to say that you are sorry? Whether you like the current President or not, he was chosen by his people in a fair election. Yes, fair. The silly Mueller Investigation confirmed it beyond any doubt. Mr Trump has millions of supporters and is popular. Look at how many admirers attend his rallies and how many are giving small donations. With Hilarious Clinton, in 2016, the news camera angles had to be changed not to show the empty seats. At the end of the day, the Office of The Presidency is still to be respected if you cannot respect the man. What message does this mockery send about NATO unity? Already the Demorat hopeful, “Sleepy Joe, Creepy Joe, Corrupt Joe Biden,” text on Twitter: “The world is laughing at President Trump. They see him for what he really is: dangerously incompetent and incapable of world leadership. We cannot give him four more years as commander in chief.” No, it is not the world. It is three incompetents enjoying less than 34% support in their own countries acting the fool. And even if the world laughs at President Trump, no one is laughing at the office he holds. Neither should you.
