Trump wants NATO countries to allocate four percent of GDP for defense

NATO countries should allocate not two percent of GDP for defense spending, but four. With such a statement on Tuesday at a meeting with the Secretary General of the alliance, US President Donald Trump said.


At a meeting in London with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, the leader of the American state, Donald Trump, said that it was necessary to raise the defense spending of NATO countries from two percent of GDP to four, but this is unlikely in the near future.

You should not pay two, you should pay four, but things are different

- he said.

According to Jens Stoltenberg, more and more alliance countries are reaching defense spending of 2% of GDP. Eight NATO countries are expected to devote two percent each year to defense this year. In 2014, there were only three such countries.

On the eve of US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called the significant increase in defense spending of the countries included in the alliance, "an unconditional merit of the President of the United States Donald trump." According to him, the growth of expenses of the North Atlantic Alliance amounted to 130 billion, dollars, and this is very significant.

This is a direct result of the fact that President Trump clearly stated our expectations that these Europeans will increase their participation and help protect their own citizens.

- said the head of the US State Department.

          No, they can be understood.
          During the Cold War, Americans did not carry such a financial burden. And the share of NATO countries along with Japan-Australia was greater. And China was a situational ally of the United States, and not vice versa.

          Therefore, it is not Trump at all. You will not blame the radio for the bad news.

            You can understand, but many do not understand. Turks pay a little less than 2% - almost $ 20 billion. Where does this money go? To protect the "Baltic lions" from a fictitious threat? Or is Trump creating a fund to buy back Greenland? winked
            And what do the Turks get for this? Insults and shish without oil. How did the NATO people disown any help when the Turks shot down a Russian plane and smelled of blood in the air ...

      These are the words of the bandits who decided to cover the next huckster. belay The algorithm for withdrawing money is primitively simple: increasing the cost of defense, a NATO member country will have to purchase weapons by NATO standards, that is, from the United States.

        NATO will be forced to purchase weapons by NATO standards, that is, from the United States.


        1. This is not necessary - France, Germany, Israel, etc., etc. are also large arms manufacturers.
        2. Most arms corporations are international - they are the property of both Americans and Europeans and Israelis, and so on.

        So the arms race is a world evil that has bumps everywhere.

        We think a little - it turns out that they are no longer afraid. Those. nobody seriously believes in Russian aggression.
        Next, we build a logical chain - an increase in defense spending also does not look completely reasonable anymore.

          Gold was repatriated from the banks of a very great Britain, so here is the tank attack of the "Russian Buryats". IMHO, no one forbade pragmatism, and in connection with the latest "Western" tendencies, it grows stronger. Well, the fact that the majority of "Europeans" do not believe in the Russian threat is openly stated by the ex-officials of these countries (acting under the signature of corporatism with the main puppeteer - they are nizzza).
