- The media is blaming Trump for the Russia-Ukraine conflict despite him being tougher on Russia than any other President.
- Europe’s weakness and reliance on Russia emboldened Putin
45th President Donald Trump is tired of the fake news lying about NATO.
He just released a statement setting the record straight and pointing out just how delinquent they were in defense spending.
President Donald J. Trump:
“People forget so quickly, with the help of the Fake News, that it was me that got the 20 out of 28 delinquent NATO countries to start paying the money that they owed in order to rebuild a floundering NATO. Nobody knew things would happen so… pic.twitter.com/mnWPzTUovH

Trump had previously called out Germany for their reliance on Russian oil.
President Trump told NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg during a meeting in 2018 that the Western alliance, particularly Germany, is “totally controlled” by Russia through oil and gas deals.
“We’re supposed to protect you against Russia but they’re paying billions of dollars to Russia?” Trump asked. “I think that’s very inappropriate.”
“And the former Chancellor of Germany is the head of the pipeline company that is supplying the gas. Ultimately, Germany will have almost 70% of their country controlled by Russia with natural gas. So you tell me, is that appropriate? I’ve been complaining about this from the time I got in.”
Trump called on Germany to “step it up” on their contribution to NATO immediately, “not 10 years from now.”
