It’s really quite simple.
Trump has put on the table a promise to stop them from stealing from the United States.
First, in national defense. Europe steals something around $100 billion in national defense spending that they ought to be spending every year, but we end up covering.
Trump has made clear he intends to put a stop to that crap whether it’s Mexico by stopping their citizens, including their drug dealers, from invading the United States or other nations that enjoy our personnel and weaponry protecting their land and people instead of them expending their own money and personnel.
