Trump says Germany owes ‘vast sums’ to NATO

Trump wrote, “Despite what you have heard from the FAKE NEWS, I had a GREAT meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.”

He added, “Nevertheless, Germany owes … vast sums of money to NATO & the United States must be paid more for the powerful, and very expensive, defense it provides to Germany!”

Stark differences between Trump and Merkel on everything from trade to immigration were in full view during an icy first meeting at the White House Friday.
