NEW YORK: The US military on Wednesday unveiled plans to withdraw about 12,000 troops from Germany but said it will keep nearly half of those forces in Europe to address tension with Russia.
Trump announced his intention last month to cut by about a third the 36,000-strong US troop contingent in Germany, faulting the close US ally for failing to meet Nato’s defence spending target and accusing it of taking advantage of the US States on trade. “We don’t want to be the suckers any more,” Trump told reporters at the White House on Wednesday about the decision.
