"When America spends three per cent plus of the world's biggest GDP on its armed forces - and the rest of the Western world scarcely two per cent, it's hard to dispute Trump's view that most of us have been keeping safe on the cheap", Mr Abbott says.
Of Nato's 29 members, just five meet that target this year: the US, Greece, Estonia, the United Kingdom and Latvia. "We look forward to the meeting you're going to have with President Putin". The spending goals agreed upon by member states have to do with their individual defense budgets rather than the alliance as a whole. "But no other president brought it up like I bring it up.it's an unfair burden on the United States".
"NATO is not a stock exchange where you can buy security". Why are their only 5 out of 29 countries that have met their commitment?
According to the declaration, all Allies have started to increase the amount they spend on defense in real terms and some two-thirds of Allies have national plans in place to spend 2 percent of their Gross Domestic Product (GDP) on defense by 2024. In an informal proposal, he suggested each member state provide spending equal to 4% of GDP.
In 2017, the alliance saw its biggest increase in defense spending "in a generation", he said, signaling to his aggrieved ally in the White House that "we see that all Allies have started to increase defense spending based on the national plans we have agreed to develop past year".
In a wide-ranging speech, Mr Abbott says having Mr Trump in the White House has been good for Australia and that it and America's other allies need to step up if they want Washington to remain a reliable partner. "Must pay 2% of GDP IMMEDIATELY, not by 2025".

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko expects that the upcoming meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin will confirm that Ukraine is on the frontline of European and transatlantic politics.
"No one owes us any money", Daalder said.
Stoltenberg agreed there should be more done to prompt allies to invest more in their defense.
"I have great confidence they'll be spending more", he said. "NATO is not a country club". And the thing that is really important is that President Trump was nearly projecting what people say about him onto Germany today. "But he's not saying that".
But Daalder said "no one is in arrears or delinquent on any payments" for that budget, either.
Trump's White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders confirmed the ask to reporters, claiming that it was not a new position for the US president.
"Many countries in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, which we are expected to defend, are not only short of their current commitment of 2% (which is low), but are also delinquent for many years in payments that have not been made", he tweeted Tuesday en route to Europe, asking: "Will they reimburse the USA?"
