Presidents claim that Germany owes the US vast sums of money demonstrates a lack of understanding, says ex-Nato representative
On the heels of a visibly awkward visit from the German chancellor, Angela Merkel, Donald Trump said on Saturday that Germany owed vast sums of fund to Nato and the US, even though the alliance does not stipulate payments to America.
His statements inspired a former US permanent representative to Nato to reply thats not how Nato works, and to add that increased European spending on defense was not a favor( or pay) to the US.
Trump, who was at his Mar-a-Lago estate for the weekend and spending the morning at Trump International Golf Course, sent two tweets early in the day. The first denounced the FAKE NEWS for what he said was mistaken coverage of a GREAT meeting with Merkel.
