#NATO summit: NATO leaders united in approving plans to bolster defenses against #Russia. (Earlier Trump slammed allies, called Germany "captive of Russia" b/c of energy deal. Actually, Russia needs that energy deal more than Germany) - The Washington Post…
FACT CHECK: Russia accounts for less than 20% of Germany’s energy needs

Trump falsely claimed Germany gets up to 70% of its energy from and is therefore “captive to Russia.” Nowhere near the truth, even w/ NordStream2 pipeline.… #NATO #NATOsummit
#Russia's pipeline to #Germany that Trump seems to be so mad about, explained - The Washington Post… #NATO #NATOsummit #NordStream2
(Living up to her 👼 name today) Angela Merkel cites her childhood in Soviet-occupied East Germany to respond to Trump’s truly tone-deaf, inappropriate and dumb bluster at NATO summit, arguing w/ allies and criticizing Germany as “captive to Russia.”
Ret Lt Col Peters: I wish US had a great leader like Germany's Merkel instead of "malevolent fool for a president" Trump who lashes out at NATO, coddles Putin & uses classic propaganda techniques to control the media, eg accusing enemies of his own conduct
Worth noting LtCol Ralph Peters, who just condemned Trump as a "malevolent fool" and propagandist who slams NATO & cozies up to Putin, left a FoxNews gig b/c he was ashamed it had "degenerated into a propaganda machine for a destructive and ethically ruinous administration"#AC360
See what Propaganda Don did there? Top NATO summit worry is Trump’s beholden to/controlled by Putin. So he deflects *his* Russia problem by accusing *Germany* of having a Russia problem. He hammers this point, knowing media will focus on his accusation b/c it’s so off the rails.
Trump will play drama queen, lashing out at NATO summit to look tough & deflect his Russia problem. But even Russians see what he's doing. Russian state TV gushes: "I can't believe I've lived to see this. Trump is doing Putin’s job. He's fracturing NATO."…
In which you wake up wondering if Trump broke NATO & your alerts remind you his goal is to fill your head. His need for attention means he’ll break anything, cause any drama to dominate the story. Our media/press is perfect putty in his manipulative little hands. (Yes NATO’s ok)
