Who does Trump think he is demanding that other countries honor their NATO commitment with 2% of their GDP for support? And where does he get off demanding fair trade with the United States, and my God where does Trump get off asking these countries where we have military bases defending them to pay for their safety. Yeah Timber and Duhig, this is what leadership looks like and we right-thinking folks can understand why you are upset.

libertas2u, do you not understand what you have read. The 2% of GDP is for them to spend on their military, not pay to us or the UN. They don't owe any back payments to us or the UN. as Trump implies. Out troops being in Germany is not just for "their" safety as you and Trump imply. You stated you had a college degree one time before, what the hell is your degree in, ping pong?

Libertarian, it is all laid out in treaties and a 2914 aggrement. They have until 2024 to meet the 2% terms.
Again, his real purpose here is to weaken NATO and our relationship EU countries. It is what Putin wants.
