ANALYSIS – One of the biggest partisan talking points during President Trump’s term was that his brash style, words and ‘America First’ agenda had alienated some European allies (mostly delinquent and soft-on-Russia Germany). This despite Trump’s actions to reinforce the forward lines of NATO in Poland and elsewhere, as well as providing offensive weapons to Ukraine previously banned by Obama-Biden.

Trump also sanctioned Russia and Putin allies more severely than his predecessor or successor, and fought to keep Europe from becoming dependent on Russian energy via the Biden-approved Nord Stream 2 pipeline.

Still, the narrative kept being spun that Trump was “fraying our alliances.”

Alas, it is now becoming clear that while Donald Trump caused many headaches for European leaders, Joe Biden’s actions so far have caused far more substantial and lasting damage to U.S.- European relations.

In just his first eight months in office, Biden appears to have more seriously alienated key European allies and in particular France, than Trump ever did.

Most of Europe is now totally peeved with Biden following the creation of the defense pact between the U.S., U.K. and Australia (AUKUS) – done without consulting European allies. This new pact resulted in a $65 billion French contract with Australia for diesel-powered subs being canceled.

The French government is so angry that it recalled its ambassadors to the U.S. and Australia.

According to Newsweek, Ralph Schoellhammer, an assistant professor of international relations at Webster Vienna Private University in Vienna, said that recalling the French ambassador to Washington “was never even considered during the Trump era.”

But this is only the most recent crisis causing what the European Union (EU) Commissioner described as trust in the U.S. becoming “eroded.” Biden’s catastrophic withdrawal from Afghanistan has provoked serious doubts from European leaders in America’s credibility and willingness to stand with its allies.

The reckless and uncoordinated Biden retreat from Afghanistan alienated Boris Johnson and even provoked a rare rebuke of the Biden actions from the British Parliament.

Schoellhammer added: “Although this might be an unpopular opinion on both sides of the Atlantic, I believe there is a case to be made that Donald Trump’s foreign policy was not as disadvantageous for European interests as one might think, especially due to the sometimes-mocking rhetoric the former president used vis-à-vis the EU.”

“Some of the major foreign policy actions undertaken by the Trump administration including the final defeat of ISIS and the killing of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, increasing the pressure on Iran and countering Tehran clandestinely and openly – the assassination of Qasem Soleimani – as well as abandoning the Iran nuclear deal laid the groundwork for the Abraham Accords and a reordering of the Middle East that I believe could ultimately lead to more stability than the pre-Trump era status quo,” he said.

Indeed. Beware what you wish for. You may just get it.

      1. Liberals have feet of clay. Their sole resource to implement socialism and oppression will be our reluctance to fully enforce our Bill of Rights, and hold our public officials to Constitutional limits. Many Americans are too ignorant about what our government should be doing, and more importantly, what they should NOT be doing. Once the awakening occurs among the populace, as their taxes/fees/fines/foibles/funds exponentially increase, while our borders are dissolved, our young soldiers are killed in proxy wars, our population is ‘globalized’, our jobs disappear and our cultures decay and squabble, we’ll have had enough of liberal ‘beneficence’.

    1. He’s Suuuuuure alienated himself from God over the course of his life.
      THANK GOD he’ll be going to THAT “conference“ SOON.

    1. FROM NOW ON! Because it ISN’T Ho Chi BiDen, it’s the REAL Power BEHIND him, carrying out Just what they WANT to.
      This is ONE SICK, EVIL WORLD.
      And Growing MORE EVIL ALL THE TIME

        1. They ARE Indeed. And MOST of them Aren’t even Aware of just WHAT’S taking place.
          NOBODY would Want to usher in Their own demise.

  1. Biden has done what main stream media would accuse Trump of. The only difference between the two is The Main Stream Media will caress Biden’s nut-suck while kicking Trump in the groin!

    1. Yup, the WICKED are Now the majority, to be SURE. THEY HAVEN’T A CLUE…. just like Most of the World. This is NOT going to end well.

  2. Pedo Joe is out to do two things. One destroy America and two Destroy everything President Trump did for America. Democraps hate both President Trump and Americans so much NOTHING is more important to them than doing that very thing. They want power and money that is all they care for. Once Pedo Joe has done the damage the the Democraps will boot him back to his basement and put the Ho in power then things will go down hill far faster and far far deeper than they are now. Pedo Joe and the Ho were cheated into office and May be getting road out of town on a rail hopefully in tar and feathers as they should. Well once out of town they all(Democraps) should be hung for their TREASON.

    1. You got it. American Tragedy of Epic scale___ which IS, of course, a World Tragedy.
      China and COMMUNISM will bring on The End.

    2. I would really like to know why the supreme court I stepped in already, there’s been enough of evidence that this was a fraud election. Is it take for them to do their job. Do they not care about America either

  3. Impeach the Human Tater Tot biden and the Bimbo harris for Treason and Sedition against the American People and the Constitution.

  4. Jomala is the worst leader ever. He is worse than Chamberlain or Carter and even Obama. Who would have thought anyone could be worse but Jomala is exponentially worse. Joe has created a geo-political nightmare in the Middle East and allowed Russia and Iran to become rich from being able to sell their oil at high prices since he has cut US oil production. Biden and the left are mental midgets when it comes to economics and foreign policy. God save us, please!

  5. Not to get ‘TOO’ preachy, but sadly the U.S. is in it’s death throes. Those who study ‘End Time Prophecy,’ will know this. Regardless of what Biden does or doesn’t do, now, the U.S. will eventually be conquered/subjugated by It’s enemies. Biden and his ilk only hastened the process.

  6. Dementia Joe hit the foreign leaders with his brilliance. All President Trump did was to hold them all accountable. With Trump the USA came first.
