      The Idiot in Chief has struck again with his ill advised us of Twitter regarding how funding NATO works. This man-child has consistently shown that he has no concept regarding the functions of domestic and international policies work, but continues his use of Twitter to put it on display. I have made a request of Twitter to shut down his account before our allies decide to bail or worse get someone killed.


      "President Trump's Saturday tweet accusing Germany of owing the United States “vast sums of money” for NATO might have been an attempt to put pressure on the European ally. But Berlin has rejected his claim while also questioning his understanding of NATO finances."


      "On Sunday, German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen called the criticism 'inaccurate,' without mentioning the president's name.


      “'NATO does not have a debt account,' von der Leyen said, according to her ministry. In reality, NATO has only a small logistical budget, which relies on funding by all member states. The vast majority of NATO members' total resources are managed domestically."

              I'm not sure what point you're trying to make with this article. If it's to say everyone is not paying the 2%, there's never been an argument about that. The NATO countries are not obligated to meet the 2% until 2024.

                      I love it when he wears his ignorance on his sleeve, over jacket in bright neon orange. DOH! ( I do wonder who's feeding him all this misinformation???)

                          Some of the disputes with Trump are a matter of political philosophy and it is simply a difference in point of view. This example with his lack of understanding of NATO is nothing but pure raw ignorance. You would think even as a candidate he would have had a full briefing book on all of the various alliances we have around the world, including how much they cost, and how much our allies contribute, as well as the exact arrangement details for troops stationed in foreign countries..


                          After WWII we did not want to do anything to encourage large Armies in either Germany or Japan, so for 30-40 years after the war we were effectively the national Armies for these two countries. In the 60's the US and GB had more armed active duty troops than Germany had. It's not like Germany was cheating, because they contributed heavily to the cost of US troops stationed in Germany.


                          It's in our best interest to have US troops in Europe as reminder to Russia that if they attack some of these countries where US troops are stationed we are not going to wait for permission to respond.

                              It's occurred to me that Trump may not be comfortable with reading. It did occur at the beginning of his term. I'm not saying he can't read, but his reading level along with understanding what he's reading may not be that developed. Could be a few reasons for that, I've been given documents to read and report on before that my boss couldn't be bothered with. I discovered by chance that he was dyslexic and embarrassed in case anyone found out.

                              Or he could just not have the attention span to read and comprehend briefs or reports.

                              Remember at the beginning when he refused to get security briefings?

                              Just a thought, also Trump not the brightest spark in the grate.

                                      They probably did brief him, but, that big magnanimous brain of his was probably off in la-la land bc as he's stated more than once, he knows stuff already.

                                      So, when they said Nato he probably thought they said Play-doh and continued humming merrily along.

                                              Deterence definitely helps, we're no longer fighting wars with soldiers. We're fighting them using technology. President Obama left this guy a road map with all the tools he needed. Arrogance is why he's showing his ignorance at every level.
