Opinion from a Libertarian ViewPoint I Have Read Ludwig von Mises and Donald Trump is No Misesian

I wonder if Trump fanboys really pay attention to what Donald Trump says when he lays his economic farts in NATO meetings.

Trump said this Wednesday at a bilateral breakfast with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg:

Well, I have to say, I think it’s very sad when Germany makes a massive oil and gas deal with Russia, where you’re supposed to be guarding against Russia, and Germany goes out and pays billions and billions of dollars a year to Russia.

How idiotic! If he were really interested in winding down NATO (instead of calling for more military spending by NATO members), he would be cheering on the oil and gas deal between Russia and Germany. It is trade between nations that reduces the potential for conflict…

Be seeing you
