NATO Secretary General: Trump's Rhetoric Has Paid Off

This weekend NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg commended President Trump’s tough rhetoric for the alliance and explained how it has produced real results. In the past two years Trump has often demanded more financial contributions from the other members because it's unfair that the U.S. "is paying for 90 percent" of NATO. At last July's summit, he even called the other nations "delinquent." They committed to spend two percent of GDP on defense, but they are "nowhere close" to reaching that demand. Thanks to Trump's tough talk, however, many of those countries have now pledged to increase their contributions.

“He has clearly stated that NATO allies need to invest more,” Stoltenberg said on Fox News over the weekend.

By the end of next year, he was happy to announce, allies will add $100 billion extra U.S. dollars for defense. 

"We see some real money and some real results," Stoltenberg noted. "And we see that the clear message from Donald Trump is having an impact. NATO allies have heard the president loud and clear and now NATO allies are stepping up."

“This is good news,” he added. “We actually see more fair burden sharing.”

Trump appreciated Stoltenberg sharing the good news.
