sharply increase its contribution for the shared cost of keeping the roughly
28 thousand American troops stationed on the Korean Peninsula South Korea and I

  1. My God, you have been saying that Japan, South Korea n the EU are going to pay you more for defense since the day you step into the White house. And now yr 4years terms are finishing soon n are you saying you have not been able to make anyone pay you more.? Hahahaha. What a joke. Self proclaimed to be the best in making deal.

  2. Of course you are going to do what you are told just as you have never stood up to any powerful nation.
    China tells half of you exactly what to do. Time to time Russia tells you what to do. The US tells you what to do.
    Hell even Mongolia told you what to do! Well actually they just told your men to die and your granny to do something else…

  3. President Moon is crazy boy who did not know that How tax is important to survive to Korea as well as spy from the north Korea. Because of he did not act for the South Korean people who had been dedicated for their country and also aggressively act for kim jung-un, dictator of North Korea.

  4. If the US doesn’t feel like SK is that important and that SK needs them more they could always leave. Which they won’t because they need access to the Korean Peninsula to fight against China. America is not going to pick up and leave even if Korea pays nothing.
