Former Danish leader fires back at Trump over defense spending comments

“And – as i told You at the NATO Summit in Bruxelles last year – we have had (proportionally) exactly the same numbers of casualties in Afghanistan as US,” he said on Twitter. “We always stands firm and ready – so we will not accept that our defence willingness is only about percentages.”

Denmark’s Parliament in January added 1.5 billion kroner ($223 million) to its defense budget for 2023, according to The Associated Press. The budget will make defense spending 1.5 percent of GDP for the year.
