Washington’s allies in NATO must contribute a “fair amount” to the Alliance’s budget, otherwise they will have to leave it, US President Donald Trump said. At a rally in Florida, he told his supporters how “it strengthens relations with NATO allies and asks other NATO members to pay their appropriate fee.”

“I told them: You have to pay, if you do not pay, you will not be here. In the press, I was heavily criticized. They said that Donald Trump is rude to our allies. Well, so they are rude to us if they do not pay! “- explained the American president.

Trump also spoke about some details of his conversation with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. “I told her: Give us a little. She says: Donald, the people of Germany will not like it. And I say: You know what? The American people do not like this…” Trump said.
