Winning: Trump Doubles NATO Countries Paying Financial Obligations, Warns ‘Delinquent
Quote:Under President Donald Trump, the number of countries in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) alliance meeting their treaty-imposed financial obligations has doubled. Additionally, NATO spending has increased $130 billion and is on track to be boosted to $400 billion by 2024. Meanwhile, as promised by President Trump, the United States’ hefty contribution to the alliance has dropped from 20% to 16%.

“In the [three] decades before my election, NATO spending declined by two-thirds, and only [three] other NATO members were meeting their financial obligations. Since I took office, the number of NATO allies fulfilling their obligations more than DOUBLED, and NATO spending increased by $130B!” the president boasted via Twitter, on Monday.

At a conference on Tuesday in London, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg praised Trump’s leadership with respect to the alliance’s progress.

“We are making real progress, most importantly on the burden sharing,” Secretary General Stoltenberg told reporters. “And your leadership on defense spending is having a real impact. Since 2016, Canada and European allies have added $130 billion more to the defense budgets, and this number will increase to 400 billion U.S. dollars by 2024.”

“This is unprecedented,” he continued. “This is making NATO stronger. And it shows that this alliance is adapting, responding when the world is changing.”

“Thank you for your leadership and your strong commitment to NATO,” Mr. Stoltenberg added.

President Trump has long been skeptical of the alliance, primarily because of the U.S.’s hefty contribution relative to other countries’ portions. During the conference, Trump heaped praise upon Mr. Stoltenberg and again highlighted the headway he’s made with the alliance.

“I think he’s doing a fantastic job,” Trump said of Stoltenberg. “I’m a big fan. His contract was extended; I was very happy about that. But you really are — you’re doing a fantastic job. We appreciate it.”

“I think the Secretary General will tell you that, through some work and some negotiation, we’ve increased the budget of countries other than the USA, because we’re paying far more than anybody else, and far more even as a percentage of GDP,” Trump continued. “But we’ve increased the numbers that other countries are paying, by $130 billion. It was going down for close to 20 years. If you look at a chart, it was like a roller coaster down, nothing up. And that was going on for a long time. You wouldn’t have had a NATO if you kept going that way.”

“And now we’ve really increased it incredibly well, and I’m happy to have helped. But the Secretary has been looking to do that for a long time. And, I can tell you, he’s very happy about it,” added Trump.

Despite the progress, President Trump is still pushing other countries to meet their obligatory financial standards.

“Some [countries] are way below 1%,” Trump told reporters on Tuesday, “and that’s unacceptable. And if something happens, we’re supposed to protect them. And it’s not really fair, and it never has been fair.”

Delinquent countries have to pay up, Trump added, noting that “if they don’t want to, I’ll have to do something with respect to trade. And with trade, I hold all the cards.”

And the odds that these delinquent countries were dumping some of that money into the Climate Change Scam are about 100%.

I usually don’t like family presidential lineages but I do worry who can take the reigns when Trump leaves in five years. He is a very special kind of guy. There just aren’t many like him. He gets it done just as he said he would and no amount of bellyaching, beetching and moaning is going to stop him. He may end up the second best president in history.

i read the article. T-Rex appears to be telling the truth. Let me paraphrase the article for you ( Dems seem to like a good paraphrase ).

NATO members got spooked in 2014 and promised to increase their spending, but it actually fell in 2015 and 2016, until Trump came into the picture. Now it's much better, what he says is true, but we can't credit him because they NATO talked about it a couple of years before....

5 more years

You shouldn't worry so much.

Trump has proven we can elect competent managers with reasonable beliefs to be President.

That's what all this coup business is about. The cat is out of the bag. People from outside D.C. can do this job and do it well.
