German Chancellor Merkel informed a cub reporter she was quite surprised that President Trump
insisted on Europe paying its share for common defense. "He actually told me that we should pay for our own defense," whispered Merkel adding..."We're socialist. We spend other people's money...never our own." So angry was Merkel that President Trump would insist on people paying for what they receive that she contacted the editorial staff of the Wall Street Journal to lament about it.
