In Reversal, President Trump Says NATO No Longer “Obsolete” | Democracy Now!

In Reversal, President Trump Says NATO No Longer “Obsolete” | Democracy Now! – The rising tension with Russia came as President Trump on Wednesday reversed his long-running criticism of NATO, saying in a joint press conference with NATO’s secretary general that he no longer believes the military alliance is “obsolete.”

President Donald Trump: “The secretary general and I had a productive discussion about what more NATO can do in the fight against terrorism. I complained about that a long time ago, and they made a change, and now they do fight terrorism. I said it was obsolete. It’s no longer obsolete.”

On the campaign trail, Trump described NATO as “obsolete” and vowed to reconsider U.S. membership unless other NATO members increased their share of military spending.
