NATO allies agree to increase defense spending: Trump Updated: 2018-07-12 19:13:06 KST

Over in Brussels, President Donald Trump said NATO allies agreed to increase defense spending by 2 percent of their GDP.
Speaking at a NATO summit press conference, the American leader said that because the U.S. has been paying (quote) "probably 90 percent of the cost of NATO", he would have been unhappy if the allies did not agree to pay more.
When asked whether he was threatening to pull out of NATO, Trump replied he could but it's not necessary since allies agreed on more spending.
Earlier the U.S. commander in chief tweeted that "all NATO nations must meet their 2 percent commitment and that must ultimately go to 4 percent."
