Interesting that the US "is providing $670,344,000,000" to NATO, when the entire US defense budget is $551 billion, proposed to rise ridiculously to $603 billion in 2018.
Appears this, like all Republican administrations (and their usual propagandists), is a ship full of math errors, to say nothing of the suggestion to not defend Europe and the rest of the world ("America First") any longer which should instead be leading to a 30 or more percent decrease in the overall military defense budget.
Interesting to note that there is actually a cut to one branch of the services in the Dumbster's proposed budget and that is to the Coast Guard which actually does directly defend American first.
Defense in the US is like health care - we spend wildly more than everyone else in the world and get way, way less in return than everyone else in the world.
