NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg praised President Trump’s “leadership” Wednesday, saying member nations are beginning to pay more into their common defense funds following the Commander-in-Chief’s tough talk.
The President was speaking with NATO nations Wednesday in Brussels to discuss common defense, terrorism, Russia, and the budget; calling on all countries to pay more to ease the burden on American taxpayers.
“We all agree that we have to do more. I agree with you that we have to do make sure that our allies are investing more. The good news is that allies have started to invest more in defense,” said Stoltenberg.
“It’s also because of your leadership, because of your carried message,” he added.
