Donald is generally an idiot, that said, he's right!
America is the Global Policeman. So it should levy a tax on the NATO nations to cover current, and even past, costs.
World War Three is coming and America is pushing for it -- the Republicans need to justify the enormous waste on the military. Of course, if it becomes an income source, that allows America to cease promoting war to justify the waste.
NATO is a relic of the Cold War -- which was just the stalemated war which Hitler predicted the Russians would push for in their desire to take over Europe.
The East-West divide proved Hitler correct -- the British initiated the World War One on 3 September 1939. Their goal was to allow Russia to expand eastward -- we know that because they attacked Germany and NOT Russia for invading Poland where the British had been building a Polish Army to attack Germany.
BUT WHO CARES ABOUT HISTORY.
America is now the Global Power with the responsibility for killing as many people as possible. The Islamic States are still fighting the nationalistic battles which began 150 years ago when they tried to evict the Ottoman Empire, then evict the British Empire. They are headed by alleged Muslims who are actively violating the Koran by attacking Israel.
But Hey -- maybe that will start the next Global War ... and Pesident Trump would certainly help facilitate it.
Donald Trump Says He Will Destroy NATO With His First Phone Call as President By on
That’s right: We won’t honor any of our commitments unless they pay up. Look, there are legitimate criticisms to be made of NATO, but it fills an important role in the defense of the West. Perhaps his hero Vladimir Putin has offered Trump a better deal.
you can watch the full interview here):
“I’d contact countries and I’d say, ‘folks, we love protecting you, we want to continue to protect you,’ but they’re not living up to their bargain. You know, you’re talking about billions and billions of dollars, Michael, numbers that you wouldn’t even believe. But they’re not living up to their bargain and you know we cannot continue to be the policeman for the world. Now, I don’t mind, but they have to pay, they have to pay. If you look at the NATO countries – 28 countries – they’re not living up to what they’re supposed to be living up to. They’re not paying what they’re supposed to be paying, which is very little by the way. So what are we supposed to get into World War III over a country that doesn’t respect us enough to even pay what they’re supposed to be paying?”
