EU Leaders Meet Obama to Snub Trump and Praise Globalisation
Obama, on his European tour, has pointedly brought home the fact that he is a committed Globalist. The election of Donald Trump was, in large part, a repudiation of Globalism by the American electorate. It was also a repudiation of the so-called mainstream media, as revelations from Wikileaks showed in graphic detail the mainstream media’s attempts to steal the election for Hillary Clinton. Now, the mainstream media is dying. Few trust it anymore, preferring to get their news from the alternative media, which is why the Democrats and the liberal media are crying for the censoring of the alternative media. – Shorty Dawkins, Editor

European Union (EU) leaders have used a summit with President Barack Obama in Berlin to reaffirm sanctions against Russia and snub Donald Trump on globalisation, NATO, and climate change.
On Thursday, Mr. Obama implied Mr. Trump was not “serious” about his position on NATO after meeting German Chancellor Angela Merkel on his European farewell tour, which concluded Friday.
On the last day of his tour, the leaders said they were committed to the widely despised Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and Mr. Obama’s approach to foreign policy and terrorism in the Middle East. This is in contrast to the president-elect, who has questioned accepted orthodoxies on the issues.
Those present included Mrs. Merkel, British Prime Minister Theresa May, French President François Hollande, Spanish Prime Minister Mario Rajoy, and Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi.
“The leaders agreed on the necessity of working collectively to move the transatlantic agenda forward, particularly on bringing stabilization to the Middle East and North Africa, as well as securing diplomatic resolution to the conflicts in Syria and eastern Ukraine,” the White House said in a statement.
“The leaders also affirmed the importance of continued cooperation through multilateral institutions, including NATO,” the White House added.
