The first OFFICIAL NATO meeting may not be til May, but that didn’t stop Rex Tillerson from meeting with the heads today and handing them a Reality Check that they can take to the BANK!
It’s time for all the cheapskates in NATO to pay what they owe!
He told the allied leaders in Brussels today,
“As President Trump has made clear, it is no longer sustainable for the US to maintain a disproportionate share of NATO’s defense expenditures.”
He also said he wants the focus of the May 29 meeting to be on finding a way for all members to meet their 2% GDP spending pledge.
The US currently pays almost QUADRUPLE the GDP amount of Germany and is responsible for roughly 75% of all NATO funding. This is unreasonable and unfair and frankly, not our responsibility.
I don’t get what Liberals are complaining about. The math is pretty simple. NATO cannot exist without funding, and we are funding too much while also being TRILLIONS of dollars in debt to China.
Look, we don’t want to see the end of our treaties or allies. All we want to see is everyone paying their fair share and doing equal work. Is that really too much to ask?
