Trump is owning the twittersphere - from England's The Sun:
DEBT COLLECTOR Donald Trump claims Germany owes the US and Nato ‘vast sums of money’ for defence of Europe against Russia
Tweeting a day after an awkward meeting with German leader Angela Merkel, Trump demanded Berlin should cough up billions of Euros more on defence.
Only the US and four other Nato members – including the UK – currently reach the alliance’s benchmark of spending on defence which is 2% of GDP.
But Germany spends a miserly 1.23% of its national income despite running a whopping £234 billion budget surplus.
The two leaders showed little common ground yesterday over a host of thorny issues, including Nato and defence spending.
And today Trump tweeted: “Germany owes vast sums of money to NATO & the United States must be paid more for the powerful, and very expensive, defence it provides to Germany!”

Germany is in arrears and needs to pony up the extra cash. They signed the treaty, they need to follow its rules instead of pissing away all of its money on feeding and housing the millions of
