Trump criticized Denmark for insufficient spending on NATO
US President Donald Trump said Denmark is not spending enough money on NATO.
“Please note that Denmark spends only 1.35% of GDP on NATO. They are a rich country, they should spend 2%, ”Trump wrote on Twitter.
He noted that only eight out of 28 NATO member countries spend 2% of GDP on defense of the Alliance.
Earlier, Trump said that he postponed a meeting with Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen because of her unwillingness to discuss the sale of Greenland. Fredericksen called Trump's idea absurd.
