Donald Trump said on Saturday that Germany owed “vast sums of money” to Nato and the US, even though the alliance does not stipulate payments to America. It seems that Merkel and the other Bilderberg EU gangsters are pissed off that Trump not only wants them all to pay their minuscule share of NATO costs, but the EU should pay BACK money that Obama let them off.
That is, why on earth are the US taxpayers paying the bulk of EU protection costs? I have said more than once, this is pure rip off as is Japan and the other Asian ‘partners’ all of whom run trade surpluses with us.
They should be paying 100% of our overseas military costs! As should Israel who leeches off of us outrageously, as well. The US pays THREE QUARTERS if all NATO costs. This is theft.
Trump’s public appearances with Merkel betrayed an awkwardness between the two leaders, including during two widely remarked upon appearances in the White House. In one, the leaders failed to stage a handshake for cameras in the Oval Office, and in another Merkel looked baffled by comments made by Trump during a joint press conference. Before the visit Trump had repeatedly called Merkel’s policies “insane” and a “disaster” for Germany.
He added: “During our meeting, I thanked Chancellor Merkel for the German government’s commitment to increase defense spending and work toward contributing at least 2% of GDP.”
Germany isn’t broke. They have money. They export to the US. They should pay at least 15% of NATO costs, not 1.5%.
On Saturday Ivo Daalder, who was permanent representative to Nato from 2009 to 2013, respond to Trump in a series of tweets.
“Sorry, Mr President, that’s not how Nato works,” he wrote. “The US decides for itself how much it contributes to defending Nato. This is not a financial transaction, where Nato countries pay the US to defend them. It is part of our treaty commitment.
Typical of the idiots who are misruling Europe, destroying it via inviting a Muslim male invasion. So, this isn’t a ‘financial transaction????’ Well, now it should be one!!!
Why on earth must WE protect Europe from their own stupidity forever??? Eh? You guys screwed it all up several times. You all should pay us 100% for protecting your sorry asses from your own chaos.
“All Nato countries, including Germany, have committed to spend 2% of GDP on defense by 2024. So far five of 28 Nato countries do. Those who currently don’t spend 2% of their GDP on defense are now increasing their defense budgets. That’s a good thing.“
“But no funds will be paid to the US. They are meant to increase Nato’s overall defense capabilities, given the growing Russian threat. Europe must spend more on defense, but not as favor (or payment) to the US. But because their security requires it.”
These idiots think they can sneer at us. I hope Trump slaps them all down. Good grief. How long will we pay for the EU messes??? Time for them all to grow the hell up. This snotty attitude of the EU ‘representatives’ pisses the hell out of me.
“We fought two world wars in Europe, and one cold war,” he wrote. “Keeping Europe whole, free, and at peace, is vital US interest.”
The stupid Europeans dragged us into not one or two wars but endless wars. Over and over again, they project events driving these to wars. They want war with RUSSIA now and they and the warhawks in the US have been pushing for war with Russia and this disgusts me no end.
These utter fools cannot comprehend, WWIII will annihilate Europe. No one will survive except a handful of Neanderthals. At this point, good riddance since they don’t want to do sane things that stop these events. To hell with them all.
