THIS is how President Trump handles NATO. It’s AWESOME!
Many NATO members have been short-changing the organization from their agreed-upon commitment of 2 percent of GDP.
The Leftists aren’t shouting for NATO members to pay their ‘Fair Share’.
They keep demanding that other people pay their ‘Fair Share’ of Taxes:
Isn’t that weird?
But President Trump is not letting the nations off the hook.
At NATO’s gleaming new headquarters, Trump returned to his longstanding call for member nations to pay their fair share, lecturing leaders about contributing more as they stood listening in awkward silence.
“This is not fair to the people and taxpayers of the United States,” Trumps said in brief remarks. “If NATO countries made their full and complete contributions, then NATO would be even stronger than it is today, especially from the threat of terrorism.”
The 28 member nations, plus soon-to-join Montenegro, will renew an old vow to move toward spending 2 percent of their gross domestic product on defense by 2024. Only five members currently meet the target: Britain, Estonia, debt-laden Greece, Poland and the United States, which spends more on defense than all the other allies combined.

Don’t you love that the NATO members ‘listened in awkward silence’?
That might be my favorite part of this story.
As a matter of fact, I might just read that to my kids before bed tonight to give them sweet dreams!
