BRUSSELS (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump told NATO allies to raise defense spending to 4 pct of gross domestic product, Bulgaria’s President Rumen Radev told reporters on Wednesday in Brussels.

“President Trump, who spoke first, raised the issue not only to achieve 2 percent, today, but (set) a new barrier - 4 percent,” Radev told reporters.
