Donald Trump tells Nato allies to pay up – BBC News


US President Donald Trump has told his Nato allies in Brussels that all members of the alliance must pay their fair share of defence spending. “Massive amounts of money” were owed, he said, voicing a long-held US concern that others are not paying enough.
But Nato’s current spending target of 2% of GDP on defence is not due to be met until 2024.

  1. The Europeans are like the welfare class in the U.S.. bunch of whiny beta male and hairy women who only have had relative peace on their continent since the U.S. was in existence.

  2. Screw this. If you're not even going to spend 2% of your GDP on defence, why do we even bother with NATO? Either tone down your defence spending requirements or tone down your ambitions or dissolve NATO altogether. This has been going on for years and is a blatant example of member states just relying on the Americans to do all the heavy-lifting.

  3. bunch of leeches but they are socialist so i'm sure they don't understand the problem. bunch of leeches. You would never see any other candidate both republican and democrat do what this man did here. trump 2020.

  4. I don't support Trump, but even a broken clock is right twice a day. The post-war transatlantic alliance isn't a partnership of a mutually beneficial nature, but instead a way to scam American taxpayers and have the United States subsidize the defense of over half the continent of Europe.Β 

    It shouldn't be of America's concern if the Russians were to invade Europe and reclaim their sphere of influence there. It could even be argued we'd have a far more productive relationship with Moscow than we ever could with London, Brussels, or Berlin anyways. Our values are much more in line with Russia's and we would be an unstoppable force were we to set aside the superficial differences between us and join forces.

  5. Ryan The U.S. is the only NATO member to invoke article 5 of the NATO agreement. (an attack on one is a attack on all) It happened right after the 9/11 attacks. NATO countries went to America's defense and fought the Afghan war alongside American troops. Canada spent over 18 billion dollars ,lost 158 dead and 1800 wounded during the war. Trump can shove his speech up his ass. We don't owe the U.S.anything.

  6. Funny that America has an Empire to maintain and rest of those European countries have to worry about there own domestic issues than spend on NATO. America is the only country in NATO to invoked Article 5. All NATO countries responded so i think NATO countries did pay to help America.

  7. America is not scared of russia the EU yanks are scared that if the USA leaves NATO they would be invaded by russia thats why they will do anything to keep Americans happyπŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜‰πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ’°πŸ’°πŸ’°πŸ’΅πŸ’΅πŸ’΅πŸ”«πŸ”«πŸ”«πŸ’£

  8. What amuses me is the fact that you all think Europe actually and truly gives a shit what Trump thinks(if he can)does(not much but tweet, dickhead) or threatens. Until you lose the orange child buffoon you are nothing but amusement for the rest of the planet, all his supporters are considered the dumbest things on two legs and even his wife can't bear him to touch her. You've had your fun, now throw out the moron and we can all get back to some actual politics.

  9. Trumpters let me tell you what really happened here, if the US President didn't care about NATO he wouldn't have showed up. What we saw here is the usual Trump Bluff, he thinks he is still in the boardroom which is why his peers just laughed at him.

  10. Smilely O'Reilly
    Euro don't need USA protest them. They can unite themselves.
    USA make war trade because they want to sale weapon. After WW2, Japan & Germany, France have rules so these country only can grow their economy but not grown strong weapon.
    It's not ww2 anymore, Germany, Japan, France so let these country build strong weapon & strong military by themselves to protest their own country.
    Don't tell me without USA. Russia can take control of Germany, France or even Japan. But I don't think USA happy if their allies can grown their own strong weapon & build strong military.
    That's why USA want their allies buy usa's weapon & paying for protest.
    It's the price of being world polite, it the price of being BIG BROTHER of the world. If you want to be big brother then you have to pay for it all, so around you will gain more friend, more allies. Nothing free here

  11. everyone agreeing with Trump has no idea how this works, the agreement about the 2% GDP which isn't even in full effect until 2025, or the fact that there is no money owed for a voluntary agreement. America's investment into the NATO agreement is for our own security more than it is just playing "babysitter". You're making America look worse than this sack of shit already is.
