Trump says Germany owes NATO 'vast sums'

US President Donald Trump on Saturday accused Germany of owing "vast sums of money" to NATO, and said Berlin should pay Washington more for defense, a day after meeting Chancellor Angela Merkel.

The two leaders showed little common ground Friday over a host of thorny issues, including NATO and defense spending.

On Saturday, Trump tweeted: "Germany owes vast sums of money to NATO & the United States must be paid more for the powerful, and very expensive, defense it provides to Germany!"

West Germany had to pay the US, France and UK to occupy their country for 5 decades after WW2. France used to hold their basic training in Germany so the German had to subsidize the cost of occupation. The Germans paid dearly for this occupation.

It's time to disband NATO. Problem solved.
