Trump signed a communique and then disparaged it. He got the attention he wanted and his supporters got their headline.
And Trump's opponents continue to be helpless in countering him.

Yep. If one is content, for whatever reasons, with the "Bush-Clinton-Bush-Obama legacy," then I suppose it is entertaining to take pot shots at the buffoonish Trumpster. But for those of us who wish for change, any change, in US foreign and domestic policies, Trumpian rhetoric is welcome.
Admit it Jim: in foreign policy the USA has behaved like a rudderless ship ever since the end of the cold war. It is still doing so today.

US policymakers are clueless about how to behave in a world where there is no "evil empire" on the horizon to threaten the US with obliteration.
They are just more crooked without the Soviet Union to point out their crookedness.

Admit what? That is exactly what I've been saying for years re US foreign policy . . .

BTW I wouldn't have guessed that you like Angela Merkel so much.
I don't, but contrarily to many other politicians, Merkel is capable of learning...

I'm so picky that I'd prefer change that actually makes things better rather than change that makes things worse, but maybe that's just me....

The "new system" which Trump represents looks a lot like the black plague of the Middle Ages... Only rats profit from it...
Monica Crowley explains it well

That is because Portugal needs German money.

Capable of learning what exactly? How to enslave the people of Europe?

Learning about the need for Europe to get rid of the US and of the Atlantic alliance...

We will soon learn to deal with that, as Italy, Austria and Hungary are showing...
