In 2018, Donald Trump stood up to what he declared a "foolhardy and dangerous move by Germany to increase its reliance on Russian natural gas," saying:
Germany will become totally dependent on Russian energy if it does not immediately change course.
It's 2023, and it turns out that old Donald couldn't have been more correct.
The entire European Union is now in an energy crisis, with many citizens and entire countries not sure where tomorrow's power is going to come from.
It's shocking that Donald Trump was the only one who warned that all of Europe shouldn't tie their energy supply chain to Vladimir Putin.
As a result of sanctions on Russia because of Putin invading Ukraine, Russian energy production has plummeted. That obviously means they aren't exporting what they were a few years ago, and Germany is suffering.
The Germans need to get their power from somewhere though, right? It's this piece of the puzzle that is disrupting the entire flow of energy across Europe in 2023.
And Donald saw it coming in 2018.
