US President Donald Trump said that he is “very, very happy” because NATO members pledged to increase defence spending to levels “never seen before”, despite denials from allies, such as France, that any additional pledges were made beyond previous targets.
In a news conference after a NATO summit in Brussels on Thursday, Trump said NATO members would increase their contribution at a “much faster clip” than previously scheduled.
“We made a tremendous amount of progress today,” Trump said. “The United States’ commitment to NATO remains very strong,” he said, adding that it was “much more powerful than two days ago”.
French President Emmanuel Macron, however, denied Trump’s claim that NATO powers agreed to increase their defence spending beyond what they had already committed, according to the Associated Press news agency.

I think USA should exit NATO. and Europeans and all the countries in the world should demand Americans bases off their lands. lets see who is protecting who?
. I am sure Russia and china are waiting for this, say good bye to American military might./ aircraft carriers are absolute, Russia and china can Destroy them 1000 miles of theirs lands . but do not worry America is gating great every time we kidnaped a Mexican and central American child from their parents.
