    As expected the fake news made out the Trump/Merkel summit was frosty and awkward based on one moment at the photo op which was clearly a translation issue, all the other photo,s seem to show quite a warm nd productive but robust summit. The Germans have used the EU broken system to further the fortunes of their exporting behemoths and are using the US to protect their eastern border and have consistently not stepped up, even St Obama called them out on it and Trump has too.
    The Germans have never been a good global citizen its just not in their DNA and Trump is rightly calling on them to spend a little bit of their huge surplus on protecting their own border and fulfill their promise to spend 2% of gdp on defence.

    The average increase in insurance premiums under Obamacare last year was 25% which is a just staggering figure after the year befores double digit increase, all those promises that premiums wouldnt go up, you could keep your own Doctor etc. were just fake. The CBO figures on the impact of Obamacare were 50% out, as Trump said its been a disaster.
    The GOP one would think would have legislation ready to go though given they have been bitching about it for the last 5 years.
