DONALD TRUMP has ripped into EU leaders over members states’ contribution to the Nato budget.

The US President did not hold back as he addressed fellow Nato members and insisted “the NATO of the future must have a great focus on terrorism and immigration”.

He said: “I have been very very direct… in saying that Nato members must finally contribute their fair share and meet their financial obligations.

“But 23 of the 28 member nations are still not paying what they should be paying and what they’re supposed to be paying for their defence.”

He said Nato’s reliance on America money was “unfair” as the EU leaders looked at each other in shock during the address.

Mr Trump continued: “This is not fair to the people and taxpayers of the United States and many of these nations owe massive amounts of money from past years and not paying in.”

“Those paying in the past years over the last 8 years the United states spent more on defence than all other Nato countries combined if all Nato members had spent just 2 per cent of their GDP on defence last year, we would have had another ¢199bn for our collective defence.

Truer words were never spoken…
