    Trump orders nearly 10K troops removed from Germany in 'unacceptable' move

    President Trump last week directed the Pentagon to cut the number of US troops stationed in Germany by 9,500, removing about a quarter of the forces in the country. A top German official said it was “unacceptable” — and could impact the longstanding relationship between the NATO allies.

    “This is completely unacceptable, especially since nobody in Washington thought about informing its NATO ally Germany in advance,” Peter Beyer, an ally of Chancellor Angela Merkel, told the Rheinische Post newspaper, according to Reuters.

    “I deeply hope that as a result of the many talks that we had … part of the troops based today in Germany which are being removed by the United States … will indeed come to Poland,” Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki told private radio RMF24, Reuters reported. “The decision is now on the US side.”
