Trump Considering Troop Withdrawal from Germany



According to a Washington Post report, President Donald J. Trump is considering withdrawing thousands of troops from Germany amid “growing tensions” with Chancellor Angela Merkel.

“Trump was said to have been taken aback by the size of the U.S. presence, which includes about 35,000 active-duty troops, and complained that other countries were not contributing fairly to joint security or paying enough to NATO,” the report said.

Reportedly, Trump wants NATO nations to contribute at least two percent of GDP to the organization.

“The Pentagon regularly reviews force posture and performs cost-benefit analyses,” said Pentagon Spokesman Eric Pahon in a statement. “This is nothing new. Germany is host to the largest U.S. force presence in Europe — we remain deeply rooted in the common values and strong relationships between our countries.”
