(Worthy News) – On the eve of NATO’s annual summit, secretary-general Jens Stoltenberg reported that all 29 alliance members are increasing their military spending, adding that President Trump’s ‘leadership’ on the issue ‘is clearly having an impact.’
As he painted an optimistic picture of the situation, Trump continued to keep up the pressure, with a series of tweets highlighting his view that U.S. taxpayers pay too much, and Europeans too little, on defense.
The secretary-general argued that European and Canadian allies should increase their defense spending not just because that “improves burden sharing, which is a good thing,” but also because it is in their own security interests to do so. [ Source: CNS News (Read More…) ]
