Report: Trump Gave Germany's Merkel $300B 'Invoice' for NATO Expenses

President Donald Trump reportedly mocked up a £300 billion NATO invoice for Germany's Angela Merkel, handing it to her during their meeting, according to the U.K.'s Independent, but Merkel "ignored the provocation" and "outrageous" move.

"The concept behind putting out such demands is to intimidate the other side, but the chancellor took it calmly and will not respond to such provocations," a German source told the U.K.'s "The Sunday Times."

The £300 billion total was reportedly estimated by Trump administration officials at his behest to be how much Germany has underspent on defense for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, including interest of £50 billion over the past 12 years.

The report comes more than a week after President Trump slammed media reports on Twitter as "fake news" over his "GREAT meeting" with Merkel.

Nice move, Donald. The more countries are made aware of what we give them for none of our benefit, the better off we are. Stop the payments and watch them squeal. They do nothing to deserve this help.

F**K NATO, and F**K the UN.

President Trump is Making America Great Again by making sure our so-called "Allies" are actually not just moochers. I have a feeling that a lot of country's around the world are going to be feeling the same was a bunch of Lazy Liberals in this country feel: They are not going to know what hit them when they have to start Paying Their Own Bills. Most of us are Tired of paying their bills for them and thank God our President has Heard Us!
