US Troop Removal From Germany: A NATO-Skeptic POTUS Always Wins

• by Tim Kirby

 Donald Trump would seem to agree with this sentiment and directly stated that he wants to continue to reduce the number of American soldiers on the territory of today's friendlier tolerant and geopolitically submissive Deutschland. The logic by which U.S. forces are stationed across the globe has been called into question many times and very often has no sellable answer. Trump himself agrees with the dubious nature of the need to have an American army base in every possible location. He even told the graduates of West Point that "We are not the policeman of the world". This a very unusual statement from an American President, so is Trump's threat to remove troops from Germany practical, ideological, or some odd reflection of his famed narcissism?
