French President Emmanuel Macron denied that any NATO members had agreed to boost contributions beyond 2 percent GDP.

“There is a communique that was published yesterday. It’s very detailed,” Macron said, per the Associated Press. “It confirms the goal of 2 percent by 2024. That’s all.”

Macron also denied reports that Trump had threatened to withdraw from the NATO alliance.

“President Trump never at any moment, either in public or in private, threatened to withdraw from NATO,” Macron said.

2. He's nothing but a serial liar ,

And a corrupt criminal terrorist terrorizing anyone he can for putin. Our allies should stop meeting , talking , or providing him with anything now. He can't be trusted, and can't do anything but attack their Democracies like he's doing in the USA for putin now. He's the greatest international security threat this world has seen for a long , long time. The gop are enabling this to continue and should all be voted out of office, if our elections aren't already so corrupted by these criminals we don't have a vote that counts anymore.

3. when i heard him saying that...

I thought, we'll see. I cant believe someone has the temerity to just come out and say that when it could so easily be refuted by every other leader at the summit. But thats our President, he knows he gets away w/ constant BS flowing from his mouth day after day, why not do it on the world stage?
