A demonstration against President Donald Trump’s visit to Brussels failed to muster up more than a few dozen protesters Wednesday.
“Make Peace Great Again,” the group behind the protest, anticipated thousands to march against President Trump, who is in town for a high-stakes NATO summit.
President Trump dressed down NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg on Wednesday, blasting Germany and other European nations for leaving themselves vulnerable to Russia by using the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline to help fulfill their energy needs.
“It is very sad when Germany makes a massive oil and gas deal with Russia, where we’re supposed to be guarding against Russia, and Germany goes and pays out billions and billions of dollars a year to Russia,” President Trump began.
“We’re protecting Germany, we’re protecting France, we’re protecting all of these countries.”
