President Trump to NATO Allies: “You pay more, We pay less”
Tuesday, US President Donald Trump asked if members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) will repay the United States just before the upcoming NATO summit in Brussels.
This follows his calls for NATO countries to “pay more” and for the US to “pay less,” which he made on Twitter early Tuesday morning.
President Trump continued his criticism after landing in Brussels:
President Trump left on his week-long European trip Tuesday. He will attend the NATO Summit in Brussels Wednesday and Thursday before traveling to England to meet British Prime Minister Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth II, and then flying to Helsinki to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Before he left he slapped another $200-B’s in tariffs on Chinese goods.
The tariffs could take effect after public consultations end on 30 August according to a statement from the US Trade Representative’s office Tuesday.
The proposed list of goods includes consumer items such as clothing, television components and refrigerators as well as other high-tech items, but it omitted some high-profile products like mobile phones.
Expect China to fade…
America First and MAGA
