President of the United States Donald Trump said he intends to seek payment from the developed countries for military support from Washington, DW reports. 

‘When it is about rich countries such as Saudi Arabia, Japan, South Korea, what to finance their armies for? They will pay us,’ Trump said.

In the case of South Korea, the American Leader claimed that the USA funds about 60 percent of their army. 

According to Trump, American generals told him that the White House pays for these countries because they are our allies. 

However, in his turn, the American Leader thinks that senior military officials do not understand in finances, and described the situation as an abhorrent trade deal and abhorrent military operation.
