Brian Edsall @B_Edsall🔁President Trump is absolutely correct in stating that the GDP % spending on NATO defense is unfair. An agreement in 2 twitter.com 014 stated that NATO members would pay 2% of their GDP towards defense. Only 5 of the 28 nations have kept that promise.

Reinaldo Cruzado Jr @RayCruzadoJr🔁Ok so 3.6% is almost double that 2%.
