In light of recent Trump's steps towards NATO solving of internal problems is much more important. I mean the $400 billion bill handed to German Chancellor Angela Merkel.Dealing with this issue should be the priority. At least for the short term.

If it really happened you think that it is justified. That Germany owes the US real money?

You really think the German defense spending had any influence on US spending whatsoever?

First of all I don't think that such claims should be made on public as it did Mr. Trump. This is purely internal problem and believe the Alliance can solve it along the way. It's bad idea to give a rise to whomever to think that the NATO is weak.
Second point. Why have the claims actually been done on Germany? This is the question. And what about other NATO countries which spend much less than 2% of GDP on defence?

Not holding my breath for a positive outcome on this latest US demand on NATO allies. As for the 2 month timeline for a plan to be outlined, in Canada's case, 2 years wouldn't be enough time, just look at our procurement record of late!
