Trump Says NATO Allies Must Meet Defense Spending Obligation

Bloomberg ------- President Donald Trump, who said in January that NATO was “obsolete” and accused allies of delinquency, again demanded on Wednesday that they pay more for their own defense while reaffirming his commitment to the alliance as tensions rise between the U.S. and Russia over the conflict in Syria. “In facing our common challenges we must also ensure that NATO members meet their financial obligations and pay what they owe,” Trump said at a White House news conference after meeting with Jens Stoltenberg, the secretary general of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. “If other countries pay their fair share instead of relying on the United States to make up the difference, we will all be much more secure and our partnership will be made that much stronger.” To learn more click on the picture below to read the article.
