Media shocked as President Trump RIPS NATO leaders to their faces: Stop sticking it to US taxpayers!

President Donald Trump stood before the members of NATO on Thursday and laid the law down to their faces.

The president lambasted the many members nations who are not paying the required 2 percent of their GDP toward the organization.

President Trump scolded the 23 of the 28 member nations that are not meeting their obligations, and a dedication ceremony for NATO’s new headquarters.

“Many of these nations owe massive amounts of money from past years,” the president said. “We have to make up for the many years lost.”

“This is not fair to the people and taxpayers of the United States,” he said. “If NATO countries made their full and complete contributions, then NATO would be even stronger than it is today, especially from the threat of terrorism.”

The gathered leaders looked shocked and dismayed by the president’s candor.

Luxembourg Prime Minister Xavier Bettel, newly elected French President Emmanuel Macron and Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel appeared dismayed as they spoke among themselves while the president delivered his speech.

It was the look of people who just realized that there is a no-nonsense man in the White House these days.

And many reporters noticed and were seemingly as shocked.

Even CNN’s Jim Acosta seemed impressed.

As were many on social media.

And while some on the left where aghast that the president asked NATO members to pay their fair share, others saw the irony in it.
