BRUSSELS – NATO countries have committed short-term $ 33 billion to spend on defence. That said Donald Trump at a press conference at the end of the two-day NATO summit in Brussels. “Incredibly, for such amounts, we have never seen before. It goes much faster to the 2 percent of their national income, as a rocket. In a few years.”
The Us president insisted in recent days on higher spending and threatened with consequences. The US pay way too much for Europe to protect, find Trump. He wants to even 4 percent, but is now satisfied. A departure from the alliance”, I could probably do, but that is not necessary,” he said, and then he his strong support for the alliance spoke out. “I believe in NATO.”
“NATO is now much stronger than two days ago,” said Trump. He called the atmosphere during a slotted spoedzitting of the 29 leaders in which he Thursday his demands on the table laid a “fantastic and collegial.” “In the end it all came together, there was a great team spirit.”
The member states said earlier in 2024 2 percent of their income on defence spending, but only a handful gets that now.
