Trump Scolds NATO Allies

Trump Scolds NATO Allies

US President Donald Trump intensified his accusations that NATO allies were not spending enough on defense and warned of more attacks like this week's Manchester bombing, unless the alliance did more to stop militants.

In unexpectedly abrupt remarks as NATO leaders stood alongside him, Trump said certain member countries owed "massive amounts of money" to the United States and NATO–even though allied contributions are voluntary, with multiple budgets, Reuters reported.
His scripted comments contrasted with NATO's choreographed efforts to play up the West's unity by inviting Trump to unveil a memorial to the attacks on September 11, 2001, in the United States at the new NATO headquarters building in Brussels.
