ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday (May 25) that members of the NATO alliance need to contribute their "fair share" to NATO's budget. In a statement at the NATO headquarters in Brussels, Trump said member states must "finally contribute" their fair share and meet the two percent target of spending on defence. "23 of the 28 member nations are still not paying what they should be paying for their defence. This is not fair to the people and tax payers of the United States", he added.
