US to pay less in NATO aid under new agreement
Posted on: 01/01/20

The Trump administration moved to cut U.S. aid to NATO this week under a new formula reportedly agreed to by ally countries.

NATO and U.S. defense officials have confirmed in multiple reports that the Trump administration is seeking to reduce its contribution to NATO to approximately 16 percent of the organization’s budget in order to bring U.S. funding closer to that of Germany, which pays 14.8 percent.

Under earlier agreements, the U.S. provided 22 percent of NATO’s direct funding, which covers the maintenance of NATO’s headquarters, joint security investments and some combined military operations, CNN reported.
