Attention Hound Rebuffed

Trump said that members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (Nato) should increase their defence spending. A European official who's close to Macron told me that Trump also shared an idea with them about the contributions to Nato that members make.

The European official said that Trump wanted to present Macron with an invoice on camera as a way of showing that the French should pay more money for their defence.

The Europeans said they did not like the idea of a mini-drama about Nato spending, while a White House official told me the president never suggested it.

I suppose there are some White House "officials" who never tire of lying for their boss.

...but hey, do what you will anyway.
