Silly Europe, sanctions are for MAGA

Perhaps the most disturbing dichotomy in U.S. history has been the fact that they have been touted as the most free and honest society in history, but have reneged on nearly every single treaty they signed.  And despite all the rhetoric on how free America is, and a beacon to the world, perhaps President Calvin Coolidge said it best when he stated that 'The business of America is business".

90 years later, and with an experienced businessman at the helm, it appears that this quote could not be more apropos as a new report out on Nov. 16 shows that while the U.S. is breaking their own sanctions against Russia when it comes to the importation of energy, at the same time they expect Europe and the rest of the world to suffer under those same sanctions.

Several cargo ships carrying liquefied natural gas (LNG) from Russia’s Yamal LNG plant have arrived in the US, Russia’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova announced, highlighting the obvious weirdness of the situation. 
“Oddly enough, with all this visible public flow of negative rhetoric from Washington, Russian liquefied natural gas is successfully being supplied to the US,” Zakharova said during the weekly press briefing. 
“Recently, at least three tankers with liquefied natural gas from the Russian Yamal LNG field on board have reached the US coast,” she added. 
US President Donald Trump has repeatedly urged the EU to look for alternatives to cheaper Russian gas, mostly delivered to Europe by pipelines. Last month, PGNiG, Poland’s gas company, signed a 20-year deal to buy liquefied natural gas (LNG) from the US. 
While promoting American LNG, Trump has repeatedly slammed Europe over its energy dependence on Russia, which he characterized as an unreliable partner. Earlier, Germany agreed to fund the building of a terminal for receiving American LNG. At the same time, Germany is participating in the implementation of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project with Russia. – Russia Today
President Trump is the essence of Coolidge's famous quote, and more and more it is appearing that what Making America Great Again (MAGA) really means that its America first at the expense of everyone else.
