Trump wants NATO allies to double their military expenses

US President Donald Trump has urged NATO allies to allocate 4% of their gross domestic product to the military, which is twice the current amount.

The White House has confirmed that Trump proposed this suggestion during the annual NATO summit in Brussels. Trump has also criticized Germany for the budget it has allocated for its defence.

The Secretary General of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg, refused to answer specific questions about Trump’s remarks and only said that NATO member states should first focus on agreeing about the current target of 2%, before discussing more ambitious targets.

Meanwhile, the discussions at the summit today are expected to focus on the Afghanistan conflict.
