President Donald Trump targeted Germany on Wednesday in reiterating his demand that NATO countries step up their defense spending so that they shoulder a greater share of the burden in protecting Europe from Russia.

Trump said it is not fair to American taxpayers that Germany buys oil and gas from Russia while enjoying the umbrella of defense provided by U.S. dollars. “Germany is a captive of Russia,” he said, pointing out that the country pays “billions and billions of dollars” to a Russia for energy. Trump said he believed that was “inappropriate”, adding: “Germany is a rich country.”
