Trump Likes NATO Now

It’s almost like he had no idea what anything was until he became POTUS and somebody had to inform him about these things.

President Donald Trump reversed his stance on NATO being “obsolete” Wednesday — a 180-degree turn on a key campaign complaint that the military alliance was no longer equipped for the fights ahead, specifically when it comes to terrorism.

During a joint press conference with NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg, Trump said NATO “is no longer obsolete” because it has adapted to focus on handling the threat of terror.

The president called NATO a “bulwark of international peace and security.”

As a candidate Trump complained repeatedly about fellow member states not paying their fair share. The agreed upon amount is at least 2 percent of a country’s GDP, but less than a quarter of the 28 countries in the alliance are actually contributing that.
