NATO Leader Praises President Trump’s Strategy

The NATO Secretary General was in Washington to address Congress, and lauded President Trump’s push for allies to spend more. Fox News reports:

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, in a historic address to Congress, declared Wednesday that President Trump’s push for NATO allies to increase their defense spending has “had an impact” and made the alliance stronger.

“Allies must spend more on defense. This has been the clear message from President Trump,” he said. “And this message is having a real impact.”

NATO does not have a defense budget, but members commit to spending a minimum of 2 percent of their Gross Domestic Products on defense. Trump, however, has repeatedly called out members that do not meet that commitment, even as this campaign has caused friction with longtime U.S. allies. The United States spends 3.5 percent of its GDP on defense, and Trump has long called for fellow NATO members to put up their share.

As Trump himself has taken credit for nations agreeing to increase their spending pledges, Stoltenberg said that NATO is stronger as a result of the U.S. pressure.

Though President Trump’s personal relationship with European heads of state is mixed, he is at least setting the right course for the future of the alliance.

The more great things that President Trump does for our Country, the more I realize how terrible the last bunch of Presidents truly were. Thank GOD for this Great President and his Great Family that show me over and over again how much they truly love this Great Country.

Obama did nothing but expose who he really is, and he has made people “SEE” a need for something more than a govt that only cares about their agenda! This nation, as any other must go thru some hell, to realize it’s need for TRUTH! Obama did get people to “SEE” that he was ONLY doing all he could to sell this nation down the tubes, as they gave up “OUR” heritage and our inheritance! This nation statred w/God/ Jesus Christ and the King James Bible and it’s precepts, as did Israel, and the world wants us to ditch that and give that inheritance up! I am NOT ready or ever desire to give up, what was an is given! Obama is wrong….sorely wrong, my heritage and inheritance is Jesus Christ! I accept NOT a word spoken by Obama, I reject all that this man says; Why? Because as you should KNOW, Obama was/is a muslim, and as Sharia Law #1 says, “A Muslim is “OBLIGATED” to LIE, to further Allahs commandments” That my frineds make me MISTRUST, Every Muslim anmd Obama!

Obama tried too throw our country under the bus. We are still paying for his treasonous deeds.

Obumer did nothing for the US except to apologize for being an American, he brought muslims here and set the taxpayers up to support them, he gave Iran a country who has said over and over that they hated America and the first chance they got they would destroy us, well obumer has set that chance in motion with the muslims and the Iranian people he brought here and gave them citizenship illegally, every one of these people need to be hunted down and deported

When dignitaries visit a different country they always seem to try to pick something that is complimentary to the countries leader they are visiting or the country as a whole, that is all except Trump, who walked in front of the Queen in England, and said negative things about the Prime Minister and in the Conference in Belgium he pushed the President aside so Trump could be inthe place of honor.

Why are we staying in the UN? They’ve ruined our country and they’ve done so on purpose. They are hostile occupiers. NATO is part of the UN so it’s time to leave them behind. If we expect our problems to come to an end then we must go to the source of the problems and eliminate it.
