If he has, as you say, "currently" that we would not honor it, when was that? "Might not" does not carry much weight since he, as I said, gives off different signals for strategic (bluffs to get desired action) reasons.
Try today

It carries a lot of weight if youíre also a NATO signatory planning your foreign policy or a possible ally deciding what path to pursue.
Thatís why we are the United States and this is what we stand for, do and expect. The world knew that for decades, the last administration faltered and this one has thrown it away.
A fickle feckless friend is worth little more than nothing.
Never know when those bonespurs are gonna act up.
And donít dream that the diplomats of the world didnít see how Pompeo failed his staff, just as sleazy.

"I would like you to do us a favor though"
Impeached President Donald Trump

"Was there a quid pro quo?.....The answer is yes"
Ambassador Gordon Sondland

"Get over it"
Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney

"Everyone was in the loop.....It was no secret."
Ambassador Gordon Sondland

Remember Impeachment is a process, it might take 10 or 15 flushes before he's gone..........

Watch his pressers, you love those long verbose videos.

The other heads of state found his performance quite comical, he does love to get a laugh out of the crowd
This time he was the subject, again.
Thereís a Floridaman tweet for that.
Iíll have to find it tomorrow to go with the clip.

Thanks man. This was great. Really helpful stuff. You really say a lot of very informative things. I feel embarrassed when my verbose videos are matched up next to your fantastic links, cuts and pastes, and general remarks like these here gems in this post.

Kudos, and best wishes. I will devoutly follow your wisdom and hope to become a better person.

Well at least Pres. Trump has accomplished something he promised he would do - world leaders are no longer laughing at the US.
