Looks like the Euros will be about Demonstrating over Trumps Political Messages. Now Trump and Team has them wondering with who all we are sending. What say ye?
A conference on security will be held in Munich from 17 to 19 February at Bayericher Hof hotel. It will be attended by more than 500 senior politicians and experts from around the world. German Chancellor Angela Merkel, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres, European Council President Donald Tusk, head of European diplomacy Federica Mogherini, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, the President of Poland Andrzej Duda and Petro Poroshenko, the President of Ukraine ( whose presence is symptomatic) confirmed attendance.
A large delegation from the US, headed by Vice President, Michael Pence will arrive in the capital of Bavaria as well. It includes Defense Minister, James Mattis, Secretary of Homeland Security, John Kelly and members of Congress. Russian President, Vladimir Putin will not participate in the conference again.

Such setting will affect another important topic: how terrorism is linked to migration flows and the actions of Merkel which led to opening wide the doors of EU for migrants.
The issue ofBrexit will be discussed under the theme of interaction between the European Union and London in the sphere of security.The conference is expected to be one of the most important events of 2017, but it is more like a demonstration of the hypocritical unity of European countries against Trumpís political messages.
