Trump praises Merkel on Germany's spending on defence, NATO | Reuters

WASHINGTON U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday said the United States would respect historic institutions but that other countries must pay their fair share to support the North Atlantic Treaty Organization.

Trump, speaking at a news conference following his meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, said he thanked her "for the German government's commitment to increase defence spending and work toward contributing at least 2 percent of GDP" for NATO.
