Watch: NATO Leaders Laugh At Trump’s ‘Fact-free’ Speech

Donald Trump has turned the US presidency into such a joke that NATO leaders were laughing at him during his speech in Brussels Thursday. The erratic U.S. president thought it was a good idea to lecture NATO on international affairs. Well. It didn’t go well.

Trump told the allies that they were “unfair to the people and taxpayers of the United States, saying that “NATO members must finally contribute their fair share and meet their financial obligations, for 23 of the 28 member nations are still not paying what they should be paying and what they’re supposed to be paying for their defense.”

“This is not fair to the people and taxpayers of the United States. And many of these nations owe massive amounts of money from past years and not paying in those past years. Over the last eight years, the United States spent more on defense than all other NATO countries combined. If all NATO members had spent just 2 percent of their GDP on defense last year, we would have had another $119 billion for our collective defense and for the financing of additional NATO reserves.

We should recognize that with these chronic underpayments and growing threats, even 2 percent of GDP is insufficient to close the gaps in modernizing, readiness, and the size of forces. We have to make up for the many years lost. Two percent is the bare minimum for confronting today’s very real and very vicious threats. If NATO countries made their full and complete contributions, then NATO would be even stronger than it is today, especially from the threat of terrorism.”

Here was NATO’s reaction:
