The NATO leader expressed concern that President Trump’s remarks could weaken the security of all member countries.


During a recent campaign event, former President Donald Trump suggested that the United States should not defend NATO allies who fail to meet their defense spending targets. This statement was met with strong criticism from NATO Secretary General Jans Stoltenberg, who stated that it undermines the security of all members and puts soldiers at risk. The defense spending targets require NATO countries to spend at least 2% of their GDP on defense, but many are currently spending less. President Biden and EU leaders have condemned Trump’s comments, with the President of the European Council emphasizing the importance of the Transatlantic Alliance in maintaining security and prosperity for Americans.
