NATO’s secretary general agreed on Wednesday that President Trump’s call for other members to boost their defense spending under the military alliance is having an effect, and promised that other NATO members would soon be chipping in more.

Trump was in Belgium Wednesday to keep up his complaint that other NATO members are “not paying what they should,” and said it’s an “unfair burden” to the U.S.

The article goes on to state the following:

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg agreed.

“We all agree that we have to do more,” he said in a joint appearance with Trump. “I agree with you that we have to do make sure that our allies are investing more. And last year was the biggest increase in defense spending across Europe and Canada in that generation.”

“Why was that last year?” Trump asked.

“It’s also because of your leadership, because of your carried message,” Stoltenberg said.

“They won’t write that, but that’s OK,” Trump replied, referring to members of the press.

“No, I have said it before, but the thing is that it really has,” Stoltenberg said. “And your message is having an impact, and we are going to build on that to make sure that we have further increases.”

    I thought we were going to drop NATO. I’m sure Pres. Trump is trying to negotiate fair spending, but will it be just talk for the other countries and no action. How long
    will it take to realize it’s fair if we’re still over paying?

    It’s funny, the same countries that are in bed with Russia want the security blanket of the United States’ money in order to be protected just in case all hell breaks loose. President Trump is right, it’s unfair to the American taxpayers to have to make up for their shortcomings as far as monies owed to Nato. You know, sometimes when you play with fire you get burned. You can’t be playing with Russia and then crying for protection. Pony up!

    A President with a backbone and telling it like it is. Trump is looking after Americans. The last Prez was looking after himself, the Dems and other countries more.
