Trump’s bully Pompeo bullies Denmark

This 22 July 2020 German TV video says about itself:

US’s Pompeo wants Denmark to stop work on Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline | DW News

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is visiting Denmark to try to persuade Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen to stop work on the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline passing through its waters. Denmark has just given the go-ahead for the work, but Pompeo hopes to get the Danes to change their minds. The US believes the pipeline will make Germany too dependent on Russian gas.

The Trump administration wants Germany to be dependent on United States fracking gas, from which Donald Trump profits personally.

Last week, Pompeo warned companies involved in the project they will be subject to US penalties if they didn’t halt their work. So how is the German government reacting to this latest US diplomatic offensive against Nord Stream 2? DW’s chief political editor Michaela Küfner spoke to German Defense Minister Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer.
