   Seeing as how Mr. Daadler did this on Twitter, Donald should have seen the take-down.

 

    Now for some humor:

@afisher  "the donald" reportedly doesn't have daily intelligence briefings and he did say he knows more that the Generals do.  So why would he bother to read 'return tweets' even if they had educational material in them?  Hmmmmmmmmmmm?  Just sayin'

UN Ambassador educates Donald on NATO

217 Views
Message 4 of 4

   Our petulant Donald decided to try and diss Chancellor of Germany by complaining about NATO funding.     A previous Ambassador to the UN  Ivo Daddler:He was the U.S. Permanent Representative on the Council of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization from May 2009 to July 2013, did some educating of Donald.     The following 9 tweets from M. Daddler:

 

1.   Sorry, Mr. President, that’s not how NATO works. The US decides for itself how much it contributes to defending NATO.

 

2.  2/ This is not a financial transaction, where NATO countries pay the US to defend them. It is part of our treaty commitment.

 

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.

 

4/ Those who currently don’t spend 2% of their GDP on defense are now increasing their defense budgets. That’s a good thing.

 

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.

 

6/ Europe must spend more on defense, but not as favor (or payment) to the US. But because their security requires it.

 

7/ US does provide large military commitment to NATO. But this is not a favor to Europe. It is vital for our own security.

 

8/ We fought two world wars in Europe, and one cold war. Keeping Europe whole, free, and at peace, is vital US interest.

 

9/ A strong, united NATO, in which all contribute their fair share to defense, will secure that peace for all Alliance members.

 

Followed by Sean Kay to Donald via Twitter

 

Sean Kay   I've worked on NATO issues or studied them for the better part of 30 years, never seen a more ignorant or uninformed comment about it.
