Just so we are clear. No NATO country, none at all, is “delinquent” when it comes to defense spending. In 2014, all NATO countries committed to spend 2% of GDP on defense NO LATER THAN 2024. Good if they meet the target earlier, but agreement is for 5 years from now. https://t.co/SyvnBoqfH5

Mark Penn, the former Clinton pollster now advising Trump on how to beat impeachment, told him to “govern” and focus on “substance” without reacting to every development. Penn might as well have told Trump to go without Diet Coke and a hair dryer.
