US President Donald Trump said he does not understand why the US should defend Germany from Russia, APA reports quoting TASS.
"Germany pays Russia billions of dollars a year for Energy, and we are supposed to protect Germany from Russia. What’s that all about?" he wrote on Twitter on Wednesday, commenting on Washington’s decision to pull part of the US contingent out of Germany.
He also reproached Berlin for not spending sufficient amount of funds to support NATO’s collective defense.
"Also, Germany is very delinquent in their 2% fee to NATO. We are therefore moving some troops out of Germany!" he tweeted.
