People Noticing Something STRANGE Missing From Audience At Trump’s U.N. Address

On Tuesday, President Trump gave the best speech to the U.N. that any president in recent history has delivered, and people are now noticing something odd that was missing from the audience.

The President took a tough tone n Islamic terrorism, socialism, and North Korea as he promoted his America first agenda, which was met with scorn from many on the left. Not surprisingly, the cowardly leaders directly affected by President Trump’s speech thought it appropriate to sit it out, including one of our close allies, German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

She was joined by Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping, Nieto and Maduro.

Their absence speaks volumes.

More from McClatchy DC:

Leaders of some of the world’s most influential – or controversial – countries skipped Donald Trump’s debut at the United Nations rather than face the prospect of being caught up in an embarrassing controversy by the unpredictable U.S. president.

The list of state leaders missing the international event is long and growing. Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping are two of the highest profile absences. But there are many whose faces were noticeably absent during Trump’s aggressive speech Tuesday on confronting North Korea, terrorism and communism, including Germany’s Angela Merkel, Venezuela’s Nicolas Maduro and Mexico’s Enrique Peña Nieto.

Diplomats say they’ve learned it can be risky to share the spotlight with Trump, who can turn even the most well-intentioned exchange into an international spectacle, such as his notorious call with the Australian prime minister about refugees or the dressing down of NATO leaders at the unveiling of a new headquarters.

While we would expect Putin, Jinping, and Maduro to skip the event, what about Merkel and Nieto, the leaders of two of our closest allies? What’s embarrassing about standing up for Western values or leaders putting their own citizens first?

Simple. Merkel has single-handedly destroyed her nation by allowing an Islamic invasion, and Nieto…well, the last thing he wants to hear is “America first,” because that means his country won’t be allowed to be a parasite on the back of America any longer.

They say you can tell a lot by a person’s actions. I’d say these cowards told us everything we need to know yesterday.
