Trump flew to the Helsinki summit after his visit to Britain where he trashed every notion of a trustworthy US-Britain alliance and treated his embattled but gracious host, May, with cavalier contempt. This followed his attendance at the NATO summit where Trump attacked alliance partners not just for their inadequate military spending but betrayed something far deeper — his disdain for the EU, which he later branded a “foe” because he thinks it has undermined America’s economic interest over the decades.
Treated Theresa May with contempt? Told off NATO? Disdain for the EU? Sounds awesome. Yet Paul Kelly seems to think these are all a bad thing.
