每日新闻更新 — 北约 - 更多的花费和更迅速的行动 The Daily Update – NATO - More Spending More Quickly

市场度过了平静的一天,美国核心消费者物价指数同比增长2.3%,并没有带来多少惊奇。头条新闻集中在特朗普的旅行和最新的北约首脑会议上。在会议上特朗普举行了新闻发布会并明确指出,他现在可以“相信北约”,(原因是)该组织的成员承诺“拿出330亿美元的资金支出”并承诺由“非常统一和比以往更加强大的”联盟迅速达到北约要拿出国内生产总值的2%用于支出的目标。达成意见一致并不意味着他们达成交易。

现在,随着令人失望的英国退欧蓝图的出版和内斗的继续,以及特朗普的国际贸易边缘战争的发展 — 特朗普总统正在欣然接受来到老家英国进行为期四天的外交、商务和娱乐访问。特朗普总统将在一个周末到苏格兰的高尔夫球场打球,还要在布伦海姆宫与梅首相以及商界领袖共进黑领带晚宴,这中间还将与女王共饮下午茶(也许温莎城堡将为他提供一茶杯健怡可乐)并获得英国近卫军乐队奉献的皇家礼炮和升美国国旗仪式的尊荣。

也许所有浮华和不务实的人都会讨好这位习惯于得到他想要的东西的总统;这位总统肯定会喜欢有女王在其中的观众。美国和英国之间的“特殊关系”经历了许多此起伏,甚至仅仅在伊丽莎白二世的执政时期也是如此,现在人们并不完全清楚目前两国的关系究竟怎么样。她的一生已经经历了15位美国总统,仅在她执政期间就经历了12位;自从1951年杜鲁门以来,她见到了每一位总统(约翰逊除外)。

许多人认为,美国,特别是当特朗普正在如此专注于在短期内推动贸易和生产之时,没有理由要帮助英国走出紧张的贸易困局。这种特殊关系的三大支柱(历史联系、精英关系和一致的利益)总是被第四支柱考验,而这一支柱往往要求(英国)对美国的外交政策献以谄媚的鞠躬。可能是美国没有多少贸易条约可以作为款待提供出来,而那些放在桌子上的东西有可能要求我们在他们破坏经济增长的保护主义政策问题上遵守他们的规定:但愿我们不会屈服。尽管如此,我们仍然是一个充满希望的国家,如果有人能够发现总统的软肋,那肯定是我们的女王陛下。
