Trump tells NATO leaders to up military spending to 4 pct of GDP

BRUSSELS, July 11 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump told NATO leaders on Wednesday they should increase their defence spending to 4 percent of their country’s economic output, higher than the group’s goal of two percent, a White House official said.

The official said the president’s remarks were not a formal proposal but came as he was urging leaders to increase their outlays on defence. (Reporting by Jeff Mason, editingRobert-Jan Bartunek)
