"These Are How NATO & Its Defense Spending Work Mr. @RealDonaldTrump" by @IvolHDaalder
1/ Sorry, Mr. President, that’s not how NATO works. The US decides for itself how much it contributes to defending NATO.

2/ This is not a financial transaction, where NATO countries pay the US to defend them. It is part of our treaty commitment.
18/03/2017 21:24:48 WIB
3/ All NATO countries, including Germany, have committed to spend 2% of GDP on defense by 2024. So far 5 of 28 NATO countries do.
18/03/2017 21:25:10 WIB
4/ Those who currently don’t spend 2% of their GDP on defense are now increasing their defense budgets. That’s a good thing.
18/03/2017 21:25:38 WIB
5/ But no funds will be paid to the US. They are meant to increase NATO’s overall defense capabilities, given the growing Russian threat.
18/03/2017 21:26:02 WIB
6/ Europe must spend more on defense, but not as favor (or payment) to the US. But because their security requires it.
18/03/2017 21:26:37 WIB
7/ US does provide large military commitment to NATO. But this is not a favor to Europe. It is vital for our own security.
18/03/2017 21:26:58 WIB
8/ We fought two world wars in Europe, and one cold war. Keeping Europe whole, free, and at peace, is vital US interest.
18/03/2017 21:27:20 WIB
9/ A strong, united NATO, in which all contribute their fair share to defense, will secure that peace for all Alliance members.

There are indeed "dues"--to pay for common civil & mil expenses--less than $2 billion/year. All 28 NATO nations always pay their share.
