European leaders may be scratching their heads because they've never seen anyone like President Donald Trump, CNBC's Jim Cramer said Thursday.
"Whatever the Europeans are doing, they are confused because they've never seen anything like this president," Cramer added on "Squawk on the Street." "They are so over their heads versus this guy."

Cramer gave a great speech at Bucknell’s graduation 2 weeks ago.
The Ungrateful Europeans. We bail them out of two World Wars and protect their sorry azzes from evil since
And now look at them.
Patriotic Americans should boycott or limit their Euro or Mexican travel and products. Stick it to these bastards.
Oh yeah, and levy fees on individual remittances to Mexico and other violators of our immigration laws. Build that fence with the proceeds.
Do you have a link to video of his speech?
“because they’ve never seen anything like Trump”
Because, apparently, they’ve never done business in the real world. If they had, they may have had a clue.
Career European politicians versus a private sector billionaire with the powers of U.S. President. It’s a college glee club versus the Crimson Tide or Buckeyes.
I made a bundle on Cramer’s advice to buy in on the Visa IPO.
Cramer’s speech——he speaks a tad too quickly but it was an inspiring speech-——failure is okay,quitting isn’t.
Cramer’s pretty much on track all the time. He’s selective but hits the target.
I think in the case of the various European political figures...none of them view the business arm as a major part of their success or failure. You can drag in fifty of the top German coalition team folks (Merkel’s crowd) and at best...maybe two of them can talk economics and why business sector really needs less regulation. The opposition parties are even worse....they all want to attack companies, their growth, and just tax them more....to hand back the ‘gifts’ to the public.
The amusing thing right now is the timing on this. Almost all political figures in Germany are in preparation mode for their summer vacation (to start in two weeks) and likely carries through to mid-August. So they might chat for ten days about the unfairness angle and condemn Trump....then they will disappear for their vacation while company bosses all get hyper that nothing is being done to fix or resolve this mess.
One other odd aspect here. If you go and pull up the data on steel and aluminum exports to the US...of the 28 EU countries...only ONE really goes over the limit that Trump talks about (Germany). So the EU, by refusing to discuss or work on this matter...are basically screwing Germany, more than any other member. And because they all signed their rights away on trade agreements to the EU...they can whine about this, but only the EU can talk to the US and work a new treaty up. So I suspect part of this business....is to screw over Merkel and the Germans.
Every car on the plant is using components from Hella, Valeo, Continental, and others.
When you think of Ford, think ‘Final Assembly’, because the parts are either made by German or French companies using Mexican or Chinese plants. The quality of these plants, by the way, is top notch.
Billing the remittances should have happened 300 days ago
What has been seen cannot be unseen
Once a Paradigm Shift is implemented
Get with the paradigm or die.
Thanks for the link. I’ve heard part of Cramer’s “homeless” story before, but not all the details. Quite a story.
Here is a piece from the Mayor of Livermore, CA ( who is a registered Democrat) about why Trump is winning!
Subject: Very interesting theory on Trump’s Success
The mayor of Livermore California explains Trumps popularity and success. This is perhaps the best explanation for Trump’s popularity ....
Marshall Kamena is a registered Democrat and was elected mayor of Livermore, CA.. He ran on the Democratic ticket as he knew a Bay Area city would never vote for a Republican. He is as conservative as they come. He wrote the following:
Trumps ‘lack of decorum, dignity, and statesmanship’ By Marshall Kamena, Mayor of Livermore , CA .
My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if Im not bothered by Donald Trumps lack of decorum. They ask if I dont think his tweets are beneath the dignity of the office.
Heres my answer: We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency.
We tried statesmanship.
Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized collegiality as John McCain?
We tried propriety has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney?
And the results were always the same. This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.
I dont find anything dignified, collegial or proper about Barack Obamas lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party.
I dont see anything dignified in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks.
I dont see anything statesman-like in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent.
Yes, Obama was articulate and polished but in no way was he in the least bit dignified, collegial or proper.
The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the 60s. To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale.. It has been a war theyve fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one the violent take-over of the universities till today.
The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war. While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety.
With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end. Donald Trump is America s first wartime president in the Culture War.
During wartime, things like dignity and collegiality simply arent the most essential qualities one looks for in their warriors. Ulysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming.
Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today.
Lincoln rightly recognized that, I cannot spare this man. He fights.
General George Patton was a vulgar-talking.. In peacetime, this might have seen him stripped of rank. But, had Franklin Roosevelt applied the normal rules of decorum then, Hitler and the Socialists would barely be five decades into their thousand-year Reich.
Trump is fighting. And whats particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommels, hes shouting, You magnificent bastard, I read your book!
That is just the icing on the cake, but its wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting, hes defeating the Left using their own tactics. That book is Saul Alinskys Rules for Radicals a book so essential to the Liberals war against America that it is and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of Hillary Clintons senior thesis.
It is a book of such pure evil, that, just as the rest of us would dedicate our book to those we most love or those to whom we are most indebted, Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer.
Trumps tweets may seem rash and unconsidered but, in reality, he is doing exactly what Alinsky suggested his followers do. First, instead of going after the fake media and they are so fake that they have literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet Offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri Trump isolated CNN.. He made it personal.
Then, just as Alinsky suggests, he employs ridicule which Alinsky described as the most powerful weapon of all.... Most importantly, Trumps tweets have put CNN in an untenable and unwinnable position. ... They need to respond.
This leaves them with only two choices. They can either go high (as Hillary would disingenuously declare of herself and the fake news would disingenuously report as the truth) and begin to honestly and accurately report the news or they can double-down on their usual tactics and hope to defeat Trump with twice their usual hysteria and demagoguery. The problem for CNN (et al.) with the former is that, if they were to start honestly reporting the news, that would be the end of the Democratic Party they serve. It is nothing but the incessant use of fake news (read: propaganda) that keeps the Left alive.
Imagine, for example, if CNN had honestly and accurately reported then-candidate Barack Obamas close ties to foreign terrorists (Rashid Khalidi), domestic terrorists (William Ayers & Bernardine Dohrn), the mafia (Tony Rezko) or the true evils of his spiritual mentor, Jeremiah Wrights church.
Imagine if they had honestly and accurately conveyed the evils of the Obama administrations weaponizing of the IRS to be used against their political opponents or his running of guns to the Mexican cartels or the truth about the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the Obama administrations cover-up.
So, to my friends on the Left and the #NeverTrumpers as well do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be collegial and dignified and proper? Of course I do.
These arent those times. This is war. And its a war that the Left has been fighting without opposition for the past 50 years.
So, say anything you want about this president - I get it - he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times. I dont care. I cant spare this man. He fights for America !
Where was this published?
I was wondering about that, and so I dug a little. I think you've got something there. It's a little surprising - almost none of them have. Check this out:
They have lived under our military protection since 1945 which has allowed them to go full socialist and ignore their own defenses. Now that protection is in question because Trump is destroying the post-WWII world order and their little play house is now in danger from Vlad the Bear they think, when in reality Mohammad has already begun their destruction from within with the Europeans own blessing in the process.
The elite US scum bags who ran the globalist schemes for 60 yrs. selling out the US time and again are now on the outs.
