President Donald Trump headed into his second day of NATO talks determined to convince fellow world leaders that they must hike the organization’s defense spending levels.
Trump said once again that the United States is paying far too much for their collective security and that all nations, especially the wealthy ones, need to jack their contributions up.
‘On top of it all, Germany just started paying Russia, the country they want protection from, Billions of Dollars for their Energy needs coming out of a new pipeline from Russia,’ he tweeted. ‘Not acceptable! All NATO Nations must meet their 2% commitment, and that must ultimately go to 4%!’
Trump will spend hours with world leaders behind closed doors before departing Brussels on Thursday afternoon for a two-day swing through the U.K.
The president who championed the ‘Art of the Deal’ indicated that he was ready for battle in the morning by dashing off new tweets that were critical of NATO’s defense position.
