Donald Trump Just Declared Himself A “Genius” During Ego-Fueled NATO Press Conference

Donald Trump capped off his disastrous NATO summit appearance with a last-ditch news conference on Thursday, during which the president made several false claims and exaggerations.

The president moved to abandon an emergency session of NATO’s top body in order to congratulate himself in front of the international press. He promised the world that he would no longer withdraw the United States from NATO because he is now “very happy” with the alliance after he claimed that the other countries had agreed to increase their own nations’ defense spending.

The president declared, “Yesterday, I let them know that I was extremely unhappy with what was happening and they have substantially upped their commitment. And now we’re very happy, and we have a very, very powerful, very, very strong NATO. Much stronger than it was two days ago.”

The president confirmed that he was “very firm” with world leaders, threatening that the United States would abandon the alliance if things did not go his way. He said, “Today and yesterday, I was probably a little bit more firm. But I believe in NATO. I think NATO’s a very important, probably the greatest ever done, but the United States was paying for anywhere from 70-90 percent of it, depending on the way you calculate, that’s not fair to the United States.”

He continued on by slapping together trade talks with the NATO alliance, two topics that have been kept separate for decades. He said, “Now you could say they’re different, but basically, to a larger extent, they’re the same countries. So I think we’re ultimately gonna be treated fairly on trade, we’ll see what happens. But I can tell you that NATO now is really a fine-tuned machine, people are paying money that they never paid before. They’re happy to do it.”
