It would be nice if the buffoon actually understood how NATO works.

From the article:
"Many countries in NATO, which we are expected to defend, are not only short of their current commitment of 2% (which is low), but are also delinquent for many years in payments that have not been made," he (Trump) tweeted Tuesday en route to Europe, asking: "Will they reimburse the U.S.?"
That's not how the spending works. Two percent represents the amount each country aims to spend on its own defense, not some kind of direct payment to NATO or the U.S.
