president of the UNITED states is threatening once again the Nato allies, who, according to Trump contributes, with handelskonsekvenser.
the UNITED states may want to use handelsvåbnet over to the Nato countries that contribute too little to the common defense of the western defense.
It says a president of the UNITED states, Donald Trump, on Thursday at The White House in the u.s. federal capital, Washington D. C.
- Many countries are close and coming closer. And some countries are not at all close to, and we may do something that has to do with the trade. It is not fair that they get american protection and then not spending their money.
Trump is just returned from the Nato summit in the Uk, and here, he said the same when he met the press along with the French president, Emmanuel Macron.
the UNITED states will "take care of" countries of departure in the trade, or "another way", if they do not meet their commitments to defence spending, he said, according to the newspaper The Independent during the Nato summit meeting in London.
He added that it's not fair, if the Nato allies must help defend countries that do not use at least two percent of their gross domestic product on defence, to which countries have agreed.
the UNITED states, up 3.4 percent on defense, Greece is 2.22 percent, the united kingdom 2,15 percent.
But more than 20 Nato countries, including Denmark, when not up to two percent, writes the newspaper.
