USA: Trump slams NATO during Racine rally

United States, Racine
April 3, 2016 at 00:47 GMT +00:00 · Published

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump held a rally at the Civic Centre in Racine, Saturday, ahead of the Wisconsin primary which takes place on Tuesday, April 5.

During the rally Trump took aim at the NATO military alliance, telling his supporters: "They're ripping off the United States and they're ripping you off. I don't care. I don't want to do that. Either they pay up, including for past deficiencies, or they have to get out. And if it breaks up NATO, it breaks up NATO."

"I mean they bring up as an example, they bring up the Ukraine. I have many friends living in the Ukraine. I have great people living in the Ukraine. Ukraine is great. The problem is this: I never hear any of the 27 talking about the Ukraine, the only one that talks about the Ukraine, the only one is the United States," he added.

Commenting on US support for allies, Trump once again took aim at Saudi Arabia, suggesting that they do not pay their fair share for military assistance. "We take care of Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia was making a billion dollars a day during the higher prices, now they're still making a lot. They were making a billion dollars a day," he said.

Trump also discussed the controversial comments he made earlier in the week regarding withdrawing US military support from South Korea and Japan. "Now I didn't say anything about letting Japan nuke, but I did say perhaps if we can't do the right deal, we'll have to let them take care of themselves and if that means they'll have some days to get nuclear weapons in all fairness, folks, I know the way life works, eventually they're going to probably want to do it anyway," he stated.
