WATCH: Trump hammers Germany for being “captive” to Russia at NATO summit

Trump really lit into Germany this morning over their big gas deals with Russia. On the one hand he pointed out that they aren’t even paying their two percent for NATO defense spending.

But he also argued against the principle of the matter, pointing out that on the other hand NATO is supposed to be protecting Germany from Russia while Germany is making Russia richer with these big energy deals. Trump said that Germany is controlled by Russia, noting that Poland refuses gas from Russia because the don’t want to be controlled by Russia.
