President Trump 'threatens to pull out of NATO' if other countries don't pay up

There are serious claims that Donald Trump may be threatening to pull out of NATO unless the EU’s wealthiest economies start pulling their weight.

Defence Editor at The Times, Deborah Hayes, says Trump apparently said that NATO allies paying 2% of their GDP is ‘a joke’, adding: “4% is what people should be spending. We are being played for fools. Every single US president has been pushing the point of extra spending since Reagan & they have all been played I am not going to be.”

He then said America might ‘do our own thing’ if others don’t commit to more spending.

Now NATO is holding an emergency meeting because Trump keeps ramping up the pressure.

Why should some countries pay their way in terms of international defence and security and others get away with not doing their bit? Trump’s spot on.
