    So it's funny, at NATO our PM said "we are re-commiting to the 2014 Wales Agreement to increase to 2%" He is working to NOT give credit to Trump, but suggesting this is due to 2014 agreement. It doesn't take a brain surgeon to know that you don't all of a sudden 4 years after the last agreement say "we are going to increase by 70% over a decade" out of the blue.

    Trump is responsible for this. Especially in regards to German spending as Trump called out their pipeline and their former leader being on the Board! Painted the two faced liars in a corner, it was a classic tactic only Trump would pull because he has the balls quite frankly. He's not messing around with these global trade abusers and they better take his threat of auto tariffs seriously, it would be a BOON to U.S jobs and his votes if he does so.

    Don't believe Macron and others who try to undermine Trumps effect. He is the reason for the season when it comes to NATO spending.

    Canada to boost military budget by 70% after pressure from US to spend more

    Kind of telling that a number of Eastern European countries are refusing to take advantage of Russia's pipeline, enriching Russia yet Germany is 70% dependent on the teet of 'the motherland'. The very nation that NATO was formed, in the first place, to counter against...

    I'm all for Trump's insistence that countries abide by their commitment to NATO and he deserves full credit for holding their feet to the fire. My enthusiasm however is restricted as I want to see those savings reflected in the federal budget's bottom line. For fiscal year 2018, the first under Trump, increased the annual federal deficit by 1/3. With the good economy and taxes rolling in, I next hope to see congressional toes roasting over the 2019 budget.

    Of course his tactics work; that's why he's so hated by the assorted traitors and deviants in the first place. He just goes from Win to Win, like a train.

    Dude, okay so the orange guy is getting our allies to annie up and pay their share of protecting their country....:clap2::clap:But they will do so not because of the orange narcissistic clown's threats, because they have no choice nor confidence in the US having their backs....70 years of a partnership that has worked, only to have whites in America and Trump destroy it. Look for Putin after all the damage is done, to invade the US afterwards after Trump give all our secrets away at this meeting and nobody coming to our aid...and folks you heard it here first.....we're that close to Russia

    False:
    https://www.factcheck.org/2017/12/distorted-nato-funding-figure/

    In 2006, NATO members agreed to try to spend at least 2 percent of their gross domestic product on defense spending. In 2014, they agreed again to aim to meet that standard by 2024.

    As of now, though, only the U.S., Greece, Estonia, Britain, Romania and Poland meet the 2 percent target, which led Trump to argue that our allies are not paying their “fair share.”

    But other countries have been spending more in recent years. The estimated 4.3 percent bump in 2017 was the third straight year that defense spending by Canada and European allies increased, according to NATO.

    After the U.S. and other countries spent billions in helping them get off energy dependence on Russia, the former Commie Merkel shits on all of it and makes a sweetheart deal with Putin.

    So much for all that 'Obama Magic' these idiots keep trying to claim existed. All anybody got was more bribes for Hillary and a new source of uranium for the Iranian terrorists to buy from, and about $600 billion to buy it with. First nuke those animals or NK's Mad midget that goes off and kills somebody we round up Democrats and use them as human shields.

    Once again quoting Trump finds you in error.
