Trump rightly lashes out at slacker NATO leaders over defense spending


It's called leadership! 

And this is what real leadership looks like as opposed to the usual European posing.  Those days are over and President Trump is gonna tell these leaders exactly what they need to hear.  How stupid is Germany to make itself dependent on Russia for energy?  It defeats one of the purposes for NATO in the first place.  German leader Angela Merkel is an idiot of the first order.      
NY Post reports President Trump didn’t let up ​Wednesday ​on his attacks on NATO ​leaders​ for ​failing to cough up enough money for defense spending, lashing out on Twitter at allies about fulfilling their commitment between meetings and an official dinner.​

​”What good is NATO if Germany is paying Russia billions of dollars for gas and energy? Why are there only 5 out of 29 countries that have met their commitment?​” Trump posted on his account. “The U.S. is paying for Europe’s protection, then loses billions on Trade. Must pay 2% of GDP IMMEDIATELY, not by 2025.​”​
