Certainly sounds like a play out of The Trump Grifters Handbook,don't it?

Pentagon chief suggests European allies replace funds diverted to border wall
[www.reuters.com]

LONDON (Reuters) - U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper said that European nations should consider funding projects in their countries after the Pentagon diverted money to pay for a border wall with Mexico.
-
“The message that I’ve been carrying, since when I was acting secretary to today, has been about the increase in burden sharing,” Esper told reporters in London late on Thursday.

“So part of the message will be ‘Look, if you’re really concerned then maybe you should look to cover those projects for us’ because that’s going to build infrastructure in many cases in their countries,” he added.

“Part of the message is burden sharing, ‘Maybe pick up that tab.’”

"I'm doing me a favor, so you should pay for it"

All part of the bad math talking point that the US spends all that defense money to 'protect a buncha damn furriners'
