U.S. President Trump threatens trade actions for NATO members that don't contribute more to defense costs Updated: 2019-12-06 16:22:33 KST

U.S. President Donald Trump has again upped pressure on NATO members to contribute more to defense spending.
Speaking to UN Security Council ambassadors at the White House on Thursday, Trump said some countries are not close to the goal of paying two percent of their GDP on defense stressing that it's not fair that they get U.S. protection if they aren't putting up the money.
This comes after Trump said during the NATO summit in London that he'll make members who spend less than two percent of GDP pay extra through trade.
His remarks are adding to uncertainties in South Korea, given that the U.S. has also been demanding a massive increase in Seoul's share of defense costs during ongoing negotiations.
