The former US president has repeatedly criticized many member countries for not paying enough in light of threats from Russia and China

這位前美國總統多次批評許多成員國未能繳納足夠的費用,以應對來自俄羅斯和中國的威脅。

Donald Trump is eyeing plans to push the NATO members to ramp up defense spending from 2% to 3% of GDP if he is re-elected in November, The Telegraph reported on Friday, citing sources close to the former US President.
Trump has reportedly been considering an increase for some time but was further persuaded by the arguments of Polish President Andrzej Duda, a source close to the ex-president told the media. The two met for talks in New York last month.
Duda has repeatedly called for a boost in defense spending across the alliance, arguing that 3% is needed to defend against “growing threats,” including from Russia.
Trump’s is “evolving towards 3%, especially after speaking to Duda” and that’s “not including money for Ukraine,” the anonymous source said.
Trump’s encounter with Duda also reportedly played a role in convincing him to lift his opposition to a long-delayed aid package which included $60 billion for Kiev.

據《每日電訊報》報道,如果唐納德·特朗普在11月份再次當選,他正考慮推動北約成員國將國防開支從GDP的2%增加到3%。一位接近前美國總統的消息人士稱,特朗普已經考慮增加一段時間,但是上個月在紐約與波蘭總統安杰伊·杜達進行會談后,被說服了。杜達一直呼吁增加整個聯盟的國防開支,認為需要達到3%以應對“不斷增長的威脅”,包括來自俄羅斯的威脅。
據匿名消息人士稱,特朗普與杜達的會面也在說服他解除對長期拖延的援助計劃的反對,該計劃包括為烏克蘭提供600億美元的援助。

In February, Trump came under fire from the White House and top Western officials for suggesting he would not defend NATO allies who had failed to spend enough on defense and would even encourage Russia to attack them. In March, US intelligence agencies warned that America was facing a “fragile world order” amid Russian and Chinese threats.
NATO’s 32 members have agreed on a target of spending at least 2% of GDP on defense. Last year’s NATO estimates have shown that only 11 are spending that much, including its largest contributor, the US, as well as the UK, Poland, Estonia, Lithuania, Greece, Hungary, Finland, Latvia, Slovakia and Denmark.
Belgium and Spain spent 1.2%, while Luxembourg, which has the smallest budget for defense compared to its GDP, spent just 1%. Only Poland, the US and Greece spent more than 3%.

在二月份,特朗普因表示他不會為那些未能在國防上花足夠資金的北約盟友進行辯護,甚至會鼓勵俄羅斯攻擊他們,而受到白宮和西方高層官員的抨擊。三月份,美國情報機構警告稱,美國面臨著俄羅斯和中國威脅下的“脆弱的世界秩序”。
北約的32個成員國已經達成協議,將國防開支至少提高到GDP的2%。去年的北約估算顯示,只有11個國家達到了這一水平,包括北約最大的貢獻國美國,以及英國、波蘭、愛沙尼亞、立陶宛、希臘、匈牙利、芬蘭、拉脫維亞、斯洛伐克和丹麥。
比利時和西班牙的開支為1.2%,而盧森堡的國防預算相比其GDP最小,只花了1%。只有波蘭、美國和希臘的開支超過了3%。

On Tuesday, Timo Pesonen, the EU’s top defense official, said “while the NATO allies are increasing their budget to at least 1% of GDP,” some member states “speak about 3% already.” His remarks came days after NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said allies “must go further” than 2%.
A source close to Trump, quoted by The Telegraph, said he also has a detailed plan for how to end the war peacefully which won’t be made public before the election.
Republican presidential nominee previously said he will be able to negotiate peace because he knows the leaders of both countries, but hasn’t elaborated. “There is a plan, but he’s not going to debate it with cable news networks because then you lose all leverage,” the source said.

歐盟最高國防官員蒂莫·佩索寧周二表示,“雖然北約盟友正在將預算提高至至少GDP的1%,”但一些成員國“已經談論到了3%”。他的言論是在北約秘書長延斯·斯托爾滕貝格表示盟友“必須進一步”達到2%之后不久發表的。
據《每日電訊報》引述的一位接近特朗普的消息人士稱,他還制定了一份關于如何和平結束戰爭的詳細計劃,但在選舉之前不會公之于眾。
共和黨總統候選人此前表示,他能夠通過了解兩國領導人來進行和平談判,但沒有詳細說明?!坝幸粋€計劃,但他不會與有線新聞網絡辯論,因為那樣你就失去了所有的影響力,”這位消息人士說道。
