trump calls out NATO leaders over Defense Spending

trump embarrassed us again...

He spoke in front of the NATO allies at the alliance’s new headquarters, and called them out for not meeting their financial commitments. For some reason, he thinks this a book club or something.


He said:
“Twenty-three of the 28 member nations are still not paying what they should be paying and what they are supposed to be paying for their defense. This is not fair to the people and taxpayers of the United States. 2% is the bare minimum for confronting today’s very real and very vicious threats. If NATO countries made their full and complete contributions, then NATO would be even stronger than it is today, especially from the threat of terrorism.”
Now here's the tea... every President since Truman has pledged support for Article 5--that the United States will defend Europe. What trump did today was a mess.
