The President of the United States Donald trump wrote on his Twitter page on the night of July 30 that he wants to reduce American military forces in Germany, because Germany holds regular payments for the maintenance of NATO.
“Germany is in no hurry to pay NATO’s two percent of GDP. Therefore, we derive a portion of our troops from Germany”, – wrote the head of the White house.
Trump criticized the fact that Germany buys Russian energy resources in large volumes.
“Germany pays Russia billions of dollars each year for energy, and we need to protect Germany from Russia. How to understand this?” – wrote trump.
Germany pays Russia billions of dollars a year for Energy, and we are supposed to protect Germany from Russia. What’s that all about? Also, Germany is very delinquent in their 2% fee to NATO. We are therefore moving some troops out of Germany!
