Member of the State Duma Committee on Foreign Affairs Elena Panina commented on a statement by US President Donald Trump, who accused NATO countries of ingratitude for US military support, which supposedly “protect Europe from Russia.”
According to Panina, in this case, Trump does not behave like a politician, but a businessman, moreover, belonging to the criminal world. “The United States is imposing“ knowingly ”unnecessary“ services ”on Europe, while demanding enormous economic concessions and trade preferences. This is similar to the behavior of a racketeer offering his own“ roof ”to an entrepreneur and then literally stripping him to the skin,” said Panna.
“Good protection!” It is not surprising that Macron, Merkel, and other European leaders do not want to pay Trump for such a “roof,” Panina stated.
