Could Donald Trump’s policies serve as an awakening for Europe and make the continent re-examine its security and defense policy?

The new American president has clearly shocked European leaders. During his recent speech at NATO’s new headquarters, he failed to mention Article 5 – the transatlantic alliance’s provision that binds all member-states to each other’s defense. Trump is doing everything he can to question alliances and shared values that have been in place for the past 70 years.

Donald Trump meets Pope Francis

WHEN Donald Trump laid into the bishop of Rome during his electoral campaign, some in America—where Catholics represent around a quarter of all voters—wondered whether it would cost him the presidency.

Russia | Thanks for Trump

On April 3, a terrorist attack was carried out in the St. Petersburg metro, 11 people were killed.
On April 7, political scientist Vyacheslav Nikonov, speaking on the TV channel “Russia-1”, announced: “They want us to be scared. We will not be afraid. We will be united.”
“We will not be frightened”, “united” in front of terrorists – without any doubt. However, Nikonov, the grandson of Vyacheslav Molotov, was referring to the unity of all of Russia. Such a unity can not be. The poor are not united with the rich, workers are not united with bourgeoisie. Nikonov deceives the working people. We always explain this.
