Not dishonest at all and not its entire NDB, but more than anyone else, pay your fair share.

First you state America pays 90% of NATO, both dishonest and not correct. Then you say America pays more than anyone else. That too is dishonest and not correct. Trump and his supporters don't like the true figures.

American spends less than $20 billion on its NATO bases and provides just 45,000 troops while the other NATO countries spent $250 billion and provide more than 3 million troops.

Your president even lied about the final NATO communique contents.

Difficult to progress when the real truth is dismissed.

Trump is a serial liar.

Pretty much spot on.

Just more dishonesty that America spends its entire national defense budget on NATO.

Do the hustle

So, people who are over 60 should be able to use technology that’s less than 20 years old? Many of the oldies I know can’t even use a TV remote, better less a smart phone.

Both myself and my wife are three score and ten and have no problem using technology and often have to show our students how better use their smart phones which my wife also has no problem using. All of our friends are mostly using smart phones. They also frequently use iPads. I was surprised how many older people were using iPads and smart phones.

I did read accounts and watch reports that not all people evacuated after there warnings. Some survived some did not.

There were evacuation warnings on the internet, radio, TV, local speaker systems, emails. I was also following most of them. Some of our friends evacuated.

coskuri

you remain incorrect about the 3/11 which were handed over to the Red Cross and suggest you should read the reports instead of baseless accusations like "Effect... was psychological. Victims were glad to hear about money... that was not forwarded to them" you insult both the donors and the victims.

The international donations for the 3/11 disasters were channeled through the Red Cross and fully accounted for. There were no missing donations. The Red Cross does keep a percentage of donations for future disasters. I read this Red Cross accounts at the time and know that to be correct. It wasn't " billions of dollars, it was actually millions of dollars".

Trump brought his lies over to Europe this week, denied his statements from an on-the-record interview and inflated his numbers about U.S. spending on NATO.

“The United States has been paying a tremendous amount, probably 90 percent of the cost of NATO,” he erroneously said. 

He lied that other NATO countries agreed to increase their defense spending to 4% GDP.

The official NATO communique and didn't contain a single word issued by Trump.

Trump lied about being at his Scottish the night before the Brexit vote.

Trump’s pattern of spewing falsehoods is nothing new. The Washington Post reported that the president made 3,001 false or misleading claims as of May 1, and that number has only increased.

The greatest part was calling his own on-the-record interview fake news. Trump just keeps on giving.

Trump lies so much that journalists now measure "Dishonesty Density".

Whenever a leader is great there's no need for boasting because the actions speak louder than words. Abe is doing what he was elected to do and also receives a very handsome sum for his services.

There are also remains of soldiers from other countries like Britain, Australia, New Zealand. There were more than 100,000 British and Commonwealth troops. There were also the Royal Navy and Air Force. People from my own family fought in Korea. POW's were badly tortured.

Burning Bush you just repeat the same comments on every post. A small amount of Novichok could kill tens of thousands and could be smuggled into Britain with its extensive coastline. Not even the Russian security intelligence services are anywhere near 100% successful and hence the terrorist bombings and attacks and the chances of a dirty nuke are a strong possibility.

But thanks to the unhinged left, he can only go places where he controls the security.

The trump has security wherever he is. But staying at his golf it profits from his visit just as when he visits his private clubs and hotels in America.

The America taxpayer costs must be enormous with 1,000 staff, seven helicopters, two military transport planes, fleet of cars. Where are they all staying in Scotland? The cost to British taxpayer is 5 million pounds.

Certainly TEPCO escaped prosecution over the cracked reactor shrouds.

The Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency has decided not to file a criminal complaint against Tokyo Electric Power Co. for allegedly running nuclear reactors it knew were cracked, government sources said Saturday.

I have stated frequently that TEPCO should ever be allowed to operate a NPP ever again.

Today, hundreds of thousands of Scots took to their streets to protest over Trump.

The US President gloated in his press conference yesterday that he predicted the result of the Brexit vote at his Scottish golf course the night it was taking place.

But it has emerged that he did not arrive in Scotland until the day after the vote that happened on June 23rd last year.

Speaking alongside Prime Minister Theresa May, the President said: 'As you remember, I was opening Turnberry the day before Brexit.'

Another Trump whooper!

World leaders are becoming wary in their dealings with Trump. Tiresome guy. Even his staff never know if he's telling the truth.

Protestor on a para glider breaks the 5 million pound security chain around his golf club. So easy and could have been a terrorist with a bomb.

Why did Trump need to bring a thousand staff with him. A fleet of helicopters, 7. At least transport planes. Fleet of cars. How much did his little holiday cost the taxpayer, British and American?
