Trump plant hohe Beiträge von Verbündeten mit stationierten US Truppen

March 8, 2019 -- Die Trump Administration arbeitet an Plänen, wie sie von Ländern, in denen US Truppen stationiert sind, dass diese nicht nur den vollen Kostenersatz für die Soldaten sondern auch noch einen Zuschlag von 50 Prozent für das Privileg, US Truppen im Land zu haben, zahlen sollen.

In some cases, nations hosting U.S. military personnel could be asked to pay five to six times as much as they do now under the “Cost Plus 50” formula, according to Bloomberg News.

The move is being seen as a way of getting NATO partners to increase their defence spending – a key issue for President Trump since taking office.

Almost 200,000 American personnel were stationed in more than 160 countries at the end of 2018, according to the U.S. Department of Defence. In 2015, Politico estimated that it costs up to $100 billion annually to maintain U.S. forces abroad.
