Tusk to Trump: "Respect your allies, you do not have so many"
The President of the European Council, Donald Tusk, told US President Donald Trump to stop fighting his allies within NATO.
Before leaving for Brussels, Trump again blamed the United States allies.
"Dear America, respect your allies, you do not have that many, after all," Tusk said, adding that after the European Union and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization signed a co-operation agreement, Europe should spend more on defense.
"Dear President Trump: America has no better ally than Europe," Tusk said.
"Today, Europeans (collectively) spend many times more on defense than Russia and China."
He said the money went to the United States and European security when the United States views Russia and China as a threat.
