Trump calls for 'fair share payments' for NATO

United States President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Saturday to criticize the idea of a European Army, stating that countries should pay "fair share of NATO."

"The idea of a European Military didn’t work out too well in W.W. I or 2. But the U.S. was there for you, and always will be. All we ask is that you pay your fair share of NATO. Germany is paying 1% while the U.S. pays 4.3% of a much larger GDP - to protect Europe. Fairness!" the president tweeted.

Last month, Trump criticized French President Emmanuel Macron on Friday for saying earlier that the European Union should have its own real military and become more self-reliant in defense.
