Trump urges NATO, Germany and France to help Ukraine financially

He noted that he was ready for any scenario of the impeachment investigation

U.S. President Donald Trump has called on NATO, as well as Germany and France, to provide financial assistance to Ukraine. It was reported by Voice of America.

“Where is Chancellor Merkel? Where is French President Macron? Why do not they allocate money? Why only the United States? (which allocate money to Ukraine – ed.),” Trump said.

He also added that NATO should help Ukraine more.

In addition, the US leader noted that he was ready for any scenario of the impeachment case. He once again stated that he “did nothing wrong”.

As we reported earlier, U.S. President Donald Trump criticized House’s of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi for holding off on sending the articles of impeachment against him to the Senate, Reuters informed.

“It’s so unfair, they are violating the Constitution,” Trump said, calling Pelosi “crazy Nancy”.

Pelosi, on the other hand, is willing to secure the fair process in the Senate trial.

    The US have been great supporters of Ukraine, but let’s get the facts straight. Here is a snippet from an article by the CSIS.

    “The European Union is the largest donor to Ukraine, and Ukraine is the largest recipient of EU macro-financial assistance to any non-EU country. The European Union has given, on average, over $710 million (€650 million) per year to the country since 2014—almost twice as much as the United States average. The European Bank of Reconstruction and Development has given a similar amount ($3.8 billion (€3.5 billion) from 2014 to 2017), much of it taking the form of investments and loans rather than direct grants. Several other EU and NATO countries—most notably Germany, France, Canada, and the United Kingdom—have also given significant sums. Germany contributed a total of $860 million (€786 million) in disbursements between 2014 and 2017 (much of it toward higher education and post-emergency reconstruction), while the United Kingdom provided around $115 million (€105 million), principally in peace-building, conflict prevention, and public-sector policy management assistance. Canada alone disbursed close to $573 million (CAD 760 million) between 2014 and 2016.”

  • Funny how he’s so parsimonious about the (relatively small) amounts given to Ukraine, when multiples of $billions every year go to shithole countries that hate America, such as Egypt, Pakistan, Afghanistan etc? Also, $billions rightly go to Israel each year. Yet Ukraine, which is menaced by far more dangerous savages than the ones that menace Israel, gets very little. But then Trumpkov has stated that ‘Ukraine is corrupt and they are pissing away our money’. His hatred and contempt for Ukraine is unwavering, as Kurt Volker confirms.
    How desperately unlucky are Ukraine a) to have the most evil neighbours imaginable and b) to have to rely on arsehole leaders like Merkel, Macron and Trump!

    • After all that, you left out the secondary offender that told NATO to stand down when the Crimea was being invaded, offered mostly nice words and blankets and then repeated over and over to Putler’s delight that there is no military solution to Ukraine. Add to that, giving him a reset button right after Bush enacted sanctions on Muskovy. I’ve seen more beneficial results for Ukraine in the last 3 years than the previous 3 years. Is that in your calculus anywhere bro? :)))

      • I don’t need to bring up the failures of the Dems; we expect them to be piss-poor and they never fail to meet those expectations. Personally I hate the Dems far more than you do. They are anti-British and always have been. Which is to be expected from a hard left party that is owned, bought and paid for by the so-called ‘American Irish’, which is code for IRA sympathisers. This is the party that hated Britain so much that it left us alone for two years to try to defend Europe, North Africa and the Far East from the tyranny of the Molotov Ribbentrop signatories. At that time the US ambassador in Berlin was the IRA gangster and nazi-lover Joe Kennedy, who was amongst many Dems advising FDR to stay out. Which he did, until Pearl Harbour.
        What is expected from a GOP government is firm, decisive leadership when Europe is again threatened by fascism. Not a leader who grovels to a filthy dictator and actually wants Ukraine to be under putlerstani jackboots. The words that have repeatedly come out of Trump’s mouth tells you all you need to know about his opinion of Ukraine. And I expect he will have similar stupid things to say about putler’s other victim : Georgia. No doubt he thinks that Abkhazia and South Ossetia are simply being protected by kindly, benign putler from those pesky warlike Georgians who have the utter temerity to want their land back.

          • “Ukraine is a corrupt country,” adding, “We are pissing away our money.”
            This can be found in multiple sources, including the NYT. Also : “Ukraine is a terrible country; they’re all corrupt”.
            I sent you previously the notorious Crimea quotes in an interview with George Stephanopoulos.
            And the quotes from the highly reputable Kurt Volker on Trump’s appalling slander of Ukraine were published recently on this very site .

  • Trump must be joking. The EU fuckers love Putin, not Ukraine. If it wasn’t for the eastern EU members, Ukraine would not receive a shit. And Nato has a commie secretary who is only effective with his mouth, not bouncing measures. Not to mention Nordstream 2. I recommend Donald to become a follower of our site, he may finally be better informed and advised…

    • He is very well informed and advised. But unfortunately by putler jackboot lickers : fucking loads of them. In particular Michael Savage, the shock jock with Russian antecedents who is a frequent guest at Mar-A-Lago, where he ensures that Trump is continually pumped with huge consignments of kremlin-supplied lies and hate.

        “STRONGER ECONOMY

        The Association Agreement (AA), including its Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA), entered into force on 1 September 2017. Parts of it had been provisionally applied since 1 November 2014 and the DCFTA since 1 January 2016. The DCFTA is a major milestone in bilateral trade offering new economic opportunities to both sides.

        The AA triggers reform of Ukraine’s legal framework, aiming to align it with that of the EU. These reforms will improve the overall business climate in Ukraine, including by curbing corruption.

        Ukrainian businesses receive preferential access to the largest single market in the world. EU businesses are able to benefit from easier access to the Ukrainian market, building new relationships with suppliers and partners.

        During the first three years of application of the DCFTA, bilateral trade flows between the EU and Ukraine have increased by 49%.

        The EU is Ukraine’s largest trading partner accounting for 42% of total trade.

        Private sector development, especially SMEs supported through dedicated programme (€110 million) and EU4Business initiative.

        Over €180 million channelled since 2014 for investments in transport, municipal infrastructure, energy efficiency; lending to small and mediumsized enterprises, particularly in local currency. “

        • The Franco-German would-be empire is no friend of Ukraine. If it was, Norde Stream 2 would not have even got under way and the catastrophic Minsk/Normandy shitshows would have been aborted. Both of their leaders are vile, treacherous putinoid scum who yearn for business as usual with the little shitweasel. A pox on them! I am so glad that we in Britain can choose our friends more carefully in future! And in particular, I don’t want to be part of any union that allows filthy fascist regimes like Italy, Austria and Orbanistan to continue as members.

    • You should try to read this article from NYT. Germany alone has given more than the US from 2014 until 2017. Time to stop complaining about how little Germany are helping Ukraine!

      “European countries have contributed $1.8 billion in development assistance from 2014 to 2017, compared to $926 million from the United States, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.

      For example, Germany has pledged over 1 billion euros, or about $1.1 billion, in humanitarian aid, development programs and loans to Ukraine since 2014. Assistance from Britain has totaled about 145 million pounds, or more than $180 million at current exchange rates, since 2014.

      Countries outside of Europe have assisted Ukraine as well, with Canada providing $785 million and Japan $468 million.”

          “Asked whether Mr. Trump had a point about European contributions in comparison to the United States’ funding, Mr. Emerson suggested a reformulation: “U.S. assistance pales in comparison to that of the E.U.””

Seriously, i met some people from Flensborg 19 years ago and we accidently met again. I’m running a store here until the owner is back in October. It’s good money. BTW, he was born in Sweden, his name is xxxx Lund. He has long blond hair, a cool guy. Can’t wait to be back in DK. Hopefully Trump won’t steal Greenland from us until then. 😂

  • The Trumpet ought to give credit where credit is due. Some countries have been more generous in helping Ukraine than the US. Trump himself is the biggest obstacle to bettering our assistance to that country. The Trumpet is instead better-advised to decry these country’s too-friendly stance towards mafia land and their unwillingness to increase sanctions and to stop NSII. But, that would hurt his short little butt-buddy.
