President Trump is doubling-down on his statements that the U.S must be treated fairly by other countries.
The president tweeted the remarks on Monday, saying he and world leaders accomplished a lot in France, but they must treat the U.S. better in relation to military funding and trade.
He also stated the U.S. spends massive amounts of money protecting other countries, and gets nothing in return except for trade deficits and losses.
Just returned from France where much was accomplished in my meetings with World Leaders. Never easy bringing up the fact that the U.S. must be treated fairly, which it hasn’t, on both Military and Trade. We pay for LARGE portions of other countries military protection,……..

President Trump’s comments come just one day after returning from France, where he and other world leaders marked the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI.
