Trump Calls Canada ‘Delinquent’ at NATO

President Trump has made it a priority to make NATO members pay their fair share since taking office. He has been making progress and at a NATO meeting in London took an opportunity to call out Canada for being “delinquent.”

According to The Hill:

President Trump on Tuesday said Canada was “just slightly delinquent” for not meeting NATO’s spending target of 2 percent Gross Domestic Product (GDP).

“Slightly delinquent, I would say, Canada. But they’ll be OK. I have confidence,” Trump said at a meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on the sidelines of a NATO leaders meeting in London.

“Just slightly delinquent. Some are major delinquent. Some are way below 1 percent and that’s unacceptable. And then if something happens, we’re supposed to protect them and it’s not really fair,” Trump continued.

Trump has previously lashed out at NATO member countries for not meeting the alliance’s defense spending target of 2 percent GDP, accusing them of being “delinquent.” Trump has long pressed countries to spend more on defense and complained the United States contributes a disproportionate amount to the alliance.

Canada currently spends 1.4% of GDP on defense which is short of the target of 2%.

1.4% for Canada; that is 30% not a small amount in my estimation.

Americans are stupid: well? It’s what they say about us in Germany, Canada, France, U.A.E., and several other places where Our Tax Dollars and, more importantly Our War Fighters are used, spent and disrespected! TRUMP was voted in by a Patriotic Citizenry that recognized that The Republic was in dire danger. Now it’s well-known by all just what has been taking place. WE have unelected vermin determining Our Futures, and handing Our Country over to communist-GLOBALISTS. ‘The American Politician’ has become a PUPPET to International Financiers wishing to destroy our Constitutional Republic. TRUMP is the legitimate P.O.T.U.S. standing between the enemies of The Constitutional United States Of America and American Citizens who actually are awake and aware of the hour in which Lady Liberty finds herself. The Liberty Tree is about to be nourished.

I would like to return a little disrespect to the Europeons that disrespects America. If I was in the room with the Eurotrash I would hike a leg and toot like Rodney Dangerfield. Real loud too. I’m quite serious.

To see how far rogue the State Dept. and our intelligence agencies have gone check out Glen Beck on Blaze TV. He has documented proof including videos of George Soros, Hillary Clinton and others talking about how using our Tax Dollars laundered thru Soros NGO’s are starting “spontaneous indigenous uprisings” to overthrow governments, take over the Justice Department, rewrite the constitutions and create socialist government that will be part of a globalist world Government. Their plan is to go country by country. The STATE Department has brought in 800 people from 50 country’s to train in the use of social media to create violent demonstrations in the street on cue. PLEASE VIEW THE DEMOCRATS HYDRA AND DEMOCRACY DIES IN DARKNESS. You will be shocked and angry.
