Fox Business anchor Trish Regan just went off on the ‘deadbeat’ nations that only pay 2% of their GDP to NATO. It’s a great moment in truth…she nails it!
EARLIER IN THE DAY, PRESIDENT TRUMP ALSO WENT AFTER THOSE NATIONS WHO DON’T PAY THEIR FAIR SHARE TO NATO. HE ALSO LIT INTO GERMANY:
The video below is the best thing you’ll see all week! President Trump went to bat for America in a big way during a breakfast with NATO leaders: He called out Germany and then the imbalance on NATO Defense Spending: “The United States is paying far too much and other countries are not paying enough.”
PRESIDENT TRUMP TWEETED ABOUT THE PROBLEM BEFORE HE ARRIVED:
Many countries in NATO, which we are expected to defend, are not only short of their current commitment of 2% (which is low), but are also delinquent for many years in payments that have not been made. Will they reimburse the U.S.? – PDJT
The European Union makes it impossible for our farmers and workers and companies to do business in Europe (U.S. has a $151 Billion trade deficit), and then they want us to happily defend them through NATO, and nicely pay for it. Just doesn’t work! – PDJT
“Germany is totally controlled by Russia”: President Trump took a few jabs at Germany during a combative breakfast kicking off a NATO summit in Brussels.

He called out Germany for their oil & gas deal with Russia and called out the unfair balance of what the US pays compared to other nations:
“It certainly doesn’t seem to make sense that [Germany pays] billions of dollars to Russia and now we have to defend them against Russia.”
“So we’re supposed to protect you against Russia but they’re paying billions of dollars to Russia.”
“Germany is totally controlled by Russia.”
“I think that these countries have to step it up, not over a ten year period they have to step it up IMMEDIATELY!”
THE NATO SECRETARY SHOULD HAVE SEEN THIS COMING…When President Trump arrived, he spoke about this unfair deal: President Trump on NATO Defense Spending: “The United States is paying far too much and other countries are not paying enough.”
