i think it's really NOT common knowledge that these countries have literal treaty obligations to contribute the 2% amount, which they completely ignore.

Trump is 100% right here. He has every right to criticize supposed allies for flouting treaty obligations.

want to get MAF about this topic?

The recent uptick in defense spending by NATO’s European members hardly compensates for the decades of decline that preceded it. From 1985 through 1989, the alliance’s European members spent an average of 3.3 percent of GDP on defense. That fell to 2.7 percent for 1990-1994, 2.2 percent for 1995-1999, and 1.9 percent for 2000-2004. By 2009, the average had fallen to 1.7 percent, and then fell to its low point of 1.45 percent in 2015. This year’s projected growth will only raise that figure to 1.46 percent of GDP — an indicator how much further the European allies must go to recover lost ground.

___________________________

In 1990, the then 14 European members of NATO spent around $314 billion

on defense collectively. In 2015, the alliance’s now 26 European members

are expected to spend around $227 billion on defense.3

So while European

membership in NATO has nearly doubled since 1990, defense spending

by Europeans has gone down by 28 percent since then.

According to the International Institute for Strategic

Studies, Germany’s defense spending has fallen by 4.3

percent since 2008 alone. In the same period, the United

Kingdom has reduced its defense spending by 9.1 percent

and Italy by 21 percent.4

This has led to a sharp drop in

military capabilities in bigger and more exposed NATO

member states, and it has made the already-uneven burden sharing in the alliance

even more lopsided.

And in effect, the dependence of European NATO allies on the United

States has further increased since the end of the Cold War, not decreased. As a

percentage of GDP, defense spending by European allies fell from an average

of 2 percent in 1995–1999 to 1.5 percent in 2014, while that of the United

States went up from 3.1 percent to 3.4 percent in the same period.5

In 1995,

U.S. defense expenditure accounted for 59 percent of overall NATO defense

spending; in 2015, the rate is expected to be above 70 percent. It is true that not

all U.S. defense spending is dedicated to security in Europe—NATO’s original

remit—yet it is clear that European NATO allies have fallen further behind on

the issue of financial burden sharing in the alliance.
