President Trump launched a tweetstorm Saturday morning to opine on a few of his favourite subjects — NATO funding and Robert Mueller’s probe into his marketing campaign — and pontificate on protests which have put France on edge.
“The Paris Settlement isn’t figuring out so effectively for Paris,” he tweeted at 7:34 am. “Protests and riots throughout France. Individuals don’t wish to pay giant sums of cash, a lot to 3rd world international locations (which can be questionably run), as a way to perhaps defend the setting.”
Protesters in France had been taking to the streets for a fourth Saturday in a row after demonstrations there broke out in violence final week. The earlier protests prompted French President Emmanuel Macron to nix a deliberate fuel-tax hike. However contributors proceed to accuse Macron of searching just for the wealthy.
Trump claimed they had been clamoring for him, tweeting, “Chanting ‘We Need Trump!’ Love France.”
Europe remained on his thoughts in a message posted 20 minutes later.
“The concept of a European Navy didn’t work out too effectively in W.W. I or 2,” he wrote, a reference to Macron’s concept of making a pan-European military. “However the U.S. was there for you, and all the time can be. All we ask is that you simply pay your fair proportion of NATO … Equity!”
He then proclaimed his innocence within the Mueller investigation into Russian meddling within the 2016 election.
“AFTER TWO YEARS AND MILLIONS OF PAGES OF DOCUMENTS (and a value of over $30,000,000), NO COLLUSION!” he wrote.
The publish got here a day after Mueller produced charging paperwork in opposition to Trump’s former marketing campaign supervisor Paul Manafort and former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen saying that each males had lied to prosecutors about contacts with Russians.
Trump heads to Philadelphia on Saturday afternoon for the annual Military-Navy soccer recreation.
