This is at least the third time in recent years Trump has said his father was born in Germany, but Fred Trump was born in New York City in October 1905, the Hill reports.

Asked Tuesday if he was indeed considering pulling the United States out of NATO, Trump replied, "People are paying and I'm very happy with the fact that they're paying". Trump's father, Fred Trump, was born in the Bronx.

Pence credited Trump's entreaties with having the desired effect in a social media post, while California Democrat Ro Khanna brought up the president's fractious approach to the alliance, stating, "We should celebrate the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation alliance, even if our president does not".

"I hope they now go and take a look at the oranges, the oranges of the investigation, the beginnings of that investigation", Trump said, before correcting himself and asking for the "origin of the investigation".

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, speaking in the House of Representatives, planned to emphasize the historic bonds that have enabled the United States and its European partners to preserve peace. I have great respect for (German Chancellor) Angela (Merkel), my father is German, was German.

The comments come little more than a week after a long-awaited probe by former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief Robert Mueller found no criminal collusion between Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and Russian Federation, according to a synopsis released by the Justice Department.

Gen. Scott Miller, Commander of U.S. and NATO Forces in Afghanistan said that NATO's Resolute Mission is also preparing for peace, however, the alliance will continue its longstanding cooperation with the Afghan National Security and Defense Forces (ANDSF).

Friedrich Trumpf (later known as Frederick Trump) arrived in the U.S. from his native Germany in 1885 at 16, United States immigration records show.

"My father is German, was German", Mr. Trump said. "I mean, Germany, honestly, is not paying their fair share", he said.

It is unclear why Trump continues to insist that his father was born in the western European country.

Since Trump took office, European allies and Canada have added $41 billion to their defense budgets.

"They're not including the president of the US because they're frightened of him and they're trying to act like everything is normal, but it's not".

Despite the positive feelings towards the two countries, Trump made the comments while admonishing the EU for making it hard for US cars to make their way into European markets. "They're paying close to one percent".

"Together, we represent nearly one billion people", he said.
