Countries Not Meeting NATO Obligations Will be “Dealt With”
US President Donald Trump said Thursday that NATO members that do not contribute fully to the organization would be “dealt with,” and singled out Germany as one country he said was not doing enough.
President Trump’s remarks came at a Cabinet meeting attended by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s (NATO) Secretary General, Jens Stoltenberg.
Secretary Stoltenberg praised Trump’s work on shoring up NATO, whose continued purpose President Trump questioned while campaigning in the 2016 Presidential Election.
Sitting at the President’s right hand, Secretary Stoltenberg said: “Your leadership on defense spending has really helped to make a difference.”
“It is impacting allies because now all alies are increasing defense spending,” he said. “No allies are cutting their budgets anymore.”
