Donald Trump prints out fake NATO invoice to Merkel for 300 billion euros?

Soteris
Did really not think I had to be the one to write this but here goes. Turns out Trump went and intentionally tried to antagonize and intimidate the prime-minister of Germany by presenting a fabricated NATO invoice of 300 billion Euros. This just days after he refused to shake her hand after a meeting. Do Trump have anything against Merkel or Germany? Why is he endangering the relationship between the two nations for stupid shit like this?

Some more information: Trump tweeted that Germany owes Nato “vast sums of money” and must pay the US more for the “powerful, and very expensive” defense it provides. NATO countries pledged to contribute 2% of their GDP on defense which is something only a few countries actually do. Trump gathered his staff and calculated the missing payments from Germany back to 2002 and added interest and presented it to the prime-minister of Germany like he is doing some shady extortion. Turns out that is not how the EU works and Germany has no intention of forking over money to the US or NATO in regards to this. Why does anyone even consider this man a business genius when he fucks up things this spectacularly?
