1. Lies to make it look like his performance at NATO was a big success

The biggest success of any POTUS ever - the likes of which the world has never seen. Such a genius negotiator.

6. They need to tell republican leaders in Congress if they don't stop him now, they'll

Remove him , and our country from not just NATO , but many other groups, and treat them for what he's become, a puppet for putin, and a enemy helping to destroy their Democracy in their countries now. He'll just try to take more and more until they demand he stop , or be removed from office. He won't stop attacking them. Putin won't let him. Every republican should be voted out of office for allowing this to happen, and continue.

9. Yes you are spot on,

I agree with another DU poster that Trump's attacks on Merkel are meant to weaken her so that Putin can install one of his puppets in Germany.

13. Not Surprised

I am not surprised that Trump likely lied about what was done at this NATO summit. However, I am upset at the way at least some in the media reacted to this statement. CBS This Morning took this at face value without reporting the specifics. As Major Garrett discussed this issue, I kept asking, but is he telling the truth. What are the details? What did NATO members actually agree to do?

That type of reporting needs to stop. Trump should not taken at face value. Also, until details can be announced, Trump's comments should not be reported, or they should be reported as only a Trump claim.
