Trump Doubles Number of NATO Countries Paying Fair Share

677

President Trump promised to make NATO countries pay their fair share for defense. So far, he has double the number of countries doing so and warned the others who are not.

According to The Daily Wire:

Under President Donald Trump, the number of countries in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) alliance meeting their treaty-imposed financial obligations has doubled. Additionally, NATO spending has increased $130 billion and is on track to be boosted to $400 billion by 2024. Meanwhile, as promised by President Trump, the United States’ hefty contribution to the alliance has dropped from 20% to 16%.

At a conference on Tuesday in London, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg praised Trump’s leadership with respect to the alliance’s progress.
“We are making real progress, most importantly on the burden sharing,” Secretary General Stoltenberg told reporters. “And your leadership on defense spending is having a real impact. Since 2016, Canada and European allies have added $130 billion more to the defense budgets, and this number will increase to 400 billion U.S. dollars by 2024.”

“Some [countries] are way below 1%,” Trump told reporters on Tuesday, “and that’s unacceptable. And if something happens, we’re supposed to protect them. And it’s not really fair, and it never has been fair.”

Delinquent countries have to pay up, Trump added, noting that “if they don’t want to, I’ll have to do something with respect to trade. And with trade, I hold all the cards.”

President Trump continues to make good on his campaign promises despite Democrats’ attempts to stop him.

  1. Thank you President Trump! It’s amazing what a True leader can do. Taking the financial burden that previous presidents have put on us, and putting it back to where it belongs. Where other Countries must step up to the place. And having the respect of the US by other countries restored because of this True Leader.

    And back home, Dems did nothing as usual. Except play “let’s bash President Trump and his Son” by Ivy Tower professors who have written and spoke out right of their hatred of President Trump, because you beat Obama/Hiliary. Nothing accomplished other than a really good warning from Professor Turley but We the People know that Dems won’t take that warning. Their hatred has clouded their judgement because they made this PERSONAL.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

      So glad to hear that this “Wicked Witch” was put in her place by the First Lady. And she’s a professor who doesn’t know how to spell “baron”, lol. Nasty woman, brought you by the Schiffy/Nadler show. And to the Congresswoman who laughed, I don’t ever want to see her pull the “race card” again. She has the audacity to laugh at someone putting down a 13 year old. Disgusting.

      GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

        Thank you Vice President Pence!

        “The impeachment hearings today reached a new low,” Pence told reporters in Holland, Michigan, shortly after the incident. “I just heard at the hearing today, one of the Democrats’ witnesses actually used the President and first lady’s 13-year-old son to justify their partisan impeachment. Democrats should be ashamed.”

        “Enough is enough,” he added. “This sham impeachment should end, and congress should get back to work on issues that are important to the American people.”

        Unfortunately Nancy and her Globalist/Socialist/communist group says it must keep going. Definitely need to go back to work. So maybe, hopefully next year we can clean OUR HOUSE of these “do-nothings” and put people in there that will be

        OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE. Gee not one scholar even thought about that yesterday either. It was all about “their” feelings.

        GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!

    Thank you John Nolte for these interesting facts on this low life

    “And then along comes CNN’s Fredo…

    You see, just like his ideological confederate Karlan, Fredo just doesn’t have the decency or humanity to simply say that mocking an innocent 13-year-old boy is wrong. It’s just not in the guy, the same guy who supports political blacklists, who publicly embraces the vicious and dangerous left-wing terror group Antifa as righteous and a “good cause,” the same guy who thinks little girls should be exposed to a penis without their consent, a proven liar who gins up riots in predominantly black neighborhoods.

    No, Fredo just can’t say it’s wrong to ridicule a child…

    “In response to the first lady’s tweet, Fredo basically condemned her as a hypocrite and suggested Barron kind of had it coming because the Orange Man is so bad…”

    Yes Mr. Nolte, agree 100%

    “The basement-rated Cuomo knows Trump has never used a minor child as a political weapon. Cuomo knows his own fake news network is guilty of much worse behavior than what we see from a president who only ever counter-punches…

    Cuomo knows all that, but he doesn’t care… He’s so filled with hate and rage and frustration, he can’t condemn an attack on a child without a caveat.”

    Disgusting, vile human excrement.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!
