President Trump on Thursday said the U.S. remains committed to the NATO alliance after a summit in which he said allies bowed to his demands to increase defense spending.
“The United States' commitment to NATO is very strong, remains very strong,” Trump said during a news conference before leaving the summit site in Brussels.
“Yesterday, I let them know that I was extremely unhappy,” Trump said. “Now I'm very happy. We have a very strong NATO, much stronger than two days ago.”
He said that is because European nations agreed to boost their spending on defense.
