yes I told people that I be very unhappy if they didn’t up their commitments very substantially because the United has been paying a tremendous amount of probably 90% of the cost of NATO and now people are going to start and countries are going to start upping their commitment so I let them know yesterday actually I was surprised it didn’t pick it up it took till today yesterday I let them know that I was extremely unhappy with what was happening and they have substantially up their commitment yeah and now we’re very happy and have a very very powerful very very tornado stronger than it was 2 days ago yes ma’am yes hi how are you help me or are you wearing that people might as well they were probably worried because the United States was not being treated fairly but now we are because the cab if it has been up so much so now they are and I was very firm yesterday you have to understand I know a lot of the people in the room I was here last year I let them know last year in a less fermentable pretty firm and they raised an additional 33 billion dollars I think going to 40 billion but it’s 33 billion dollars as of today and then today and yesterday I was probably a little bit more firm but we believe in NATO I think that is a very important probably the greatest ever done but the United States was paying for anywhere from 70 to 90% of it depending on the way you calculate that’s not fair to the United States in addition to that as you know where negotiations with the EU and we’re going to be meeting with them next week we’ve been treated very unfairly aren’t radar Farmers have been shut out of the European Union now you can say they’re different but basically to a large extent of the same countries so we’re going to be all so badly treated fairly and trade we’ll see what happens but I can tell you that date or Now is really a fine-tuned machine people are paying money that they never paid before the happy to do it and the United States is being treated much more fairly yes sir
