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."
