    Trump won't rule out ceasing military exercises if Putin asks
    https://www.cnn.com/2018/07/12/politics/trump-nato-military-exercises/index.html

    President Donald Trump capped off his dramatic appearance at the annual NATO summit in Brussels, Belgium, on Thursday by teasing another controversial possibility, saying he would not rule out ceasing NATO military exercises in the Baltic States if Russian leader Vladimir Putin requested it during their upcoming meeting in Helsinki, Finland.

    Asked if he would cancel them, Trump said, "Perhaps we'll talk about that," referring to Putin, a response that has only fueled the the growing uncertainty over the state of the alliance.
    Despite Trump's barrage of acidic rhetoric during the summit, diplomats said the President never explicitly threatened to leave NATO and it remains unclear whether he has the power to do so without Senate approval.
    However, Trump's comments about possibly canceling NATO military exercises at Putin's request have amplified fears among European leaders that the President could undermine the alliance by making major unilateral concessions to the Russian President -- who he again referred to as a "competitor" rather than an adversary on Thursday.

    NATO military exercises cost our country money. I though the Democrats wanted our vast "military industrial complex" to cut spending?
    Make up your mind Dems. You are stepping in your own excrement.

    You shouldn't mind. .... You get to see and hear his name that you adore more often that way.......
    You're welcome!.... Lol

    Hey kidding aside, the more Trump is mentioned in the news or elsewhere, the better it is for him........ He was all over the media, all types of media, since he announced his candidacy for President and I'm sure that didn't harm his campaign ...... No matter what a persons political "flavor" is, the Democrats should not take Trump lightly as a candidate as they did last time...... If nothing else, he's a good campaigner...he knows what his base wants to hear and how to fire them up...... I would not be shocked if he won again.... Assuming he gets the chance of course.... (he likely will in my opinion)...... Same thing in the mid-terms.... A "blue wave" is far from guaranteed and for more than one reason.....at least at this point....
