Trump Says His Tough Stand at Brussels Summit Has Made NATO Stronger, Richer

HELSINKI – The President of the United States claimed Monday owing to his tough stand at the Brussels Summit, the alliance has now emerged stronger and richer.

“Received many calls from leaders of NATO countries thanking me for helping to bring them together and to get them focused on financial obligations, both present & future. We had a truly great Summit that was inaccurately covered by much of the media. NATO is now strong & rich!” tweeted Donald Trump from Helsinki.

At the NATO summit in Brussels on Wednesday and Thursday, Trump had criticized NATO allies who did not dedicate 2 percent of their GDP to military spending and demanded they should raise this to 4 percent.

NATO members had pledged at the 2014 Wales summit to allocate 2 percent of their GDP to defense by 2024, and Trump has explicitly called out several countries that are yet to meet that goal, including Germany.

Trump would be in Helsinki on Monday to participate in his first formal summit with his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin.

The two leaders are expected to discuss the Syria and Ukraine crisis, nuclear disarmament and the alleged interference of Moscow in the US elections.
