In a speech confirming the worst fears of European socialists, Vice President Mike Pence told a gathering of NATO officials today that most of their nations weren’t doing enough to pay for their own defense.
Pence stated that only The United States and four European nations meet the 2% of GDP spending commitment for their own defense. “Those four countries are the UK, Estonia, Greece and Poland. The other 23 Nato [sic] members do not meet the target of spending 2% of GDP on defence [sic].”
“Earlier, Mrs Merkel said Germany would do “everything possible” to meet the NATO target for spending 2% of GDP on defence by 2024.”
Gee, way to set an example for the rest of them, Angela.
