Standing with Trump

Friday, June 16, 2017

President Trump is absolutely correct in asking NATO members to pay their fair share. The United States rescued Europe twice in two world wars with American lives and money. In the case of WWII, if the Europeans had united and had not given into Hitler’s demands, the war might have been avoided.

Chancellor Merkel and the Germans can criticize and make all the faces at Trump they want, but must remember NATO countries in Europe have 500 million people and the United States has 300 million. These countries are prosperous and have the means to pay. At this time, only Poland and one another country pay their share.
