It was nice to see this morning that some in the Norwegian Media are finally coming around, not downing our President, and starting to understand what America First is all about. It’s about making decisions on how to allocate scarce resources, paid for by the American people, among unlimited wants, including those outside our borders. E24 gave a neutral response. President Donald Trump is growing into the role, becoming more Presidential by the day while retaining his Jacksonian inner core. Most importantly, the American people were happy! That’s what matter’s most.
(Google Translated E24)
Nevertheless, There are still many in Norway, filled with envy and insecurity that their leaders are not as dynamic and their country struggles to progress beyond making holes in the bottom of the sea and catch fish:

NATO and Refugees
I listened to Trump’s speech from start to end. He said nothing wrong and followed protocols, like those before him. I am not sure what the Norwegians want. He assured NATO but said that they must pay up:
” We strongly support NATO, an alliance forged through the bonds of two World Wars that dethroned fascism, and a Cold War that defeated communism. But our partners must meet their financial obligations.
And now, based on our very strong and frank discussions, they are beginning to do just that.
We expect our partners, whether in NATO, in the Middle East, or the Pacific — to take a direct and meaningful role in both strategic and military operations, and pay their fair share of the cost.
We will respect historic institutions, but we will also respect the sovereign rights of nations.
Free nations are the best vehicle for expressing the will of the people — and America respects the right of all nations to chart their own path. My job is not to represent the world. My job is to represent the United States of America. But we know that America is better off, when there is less conflict — not more.
We must learn from the mistakes of the past — we have seen the war and destruction that have raged across our world.
The only long-term solution for these humanitarian disasters is to create the conditions where displaced persons can safely return home and begin the long process of rebuilding.”
Here is the deal with Harley’s in Norway (The country that Trump did not name but said was charging 100% over US prices) :
