REPORT: NATO allies spooked by Trump despite White House soothing
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by Axios:
This week’s NATO meeting in London will be “a celebratory leaders’ meeting,” according to a White House talking point ahead of President Trump’s trip. But European officials aren’t betting on it, and Trump has been privately complaining about France’s President Emmanuel Macron.
Best-case scenario, for Europeans: Trump sticks to the script — taking credit for a stronger NATO and celebrating the fact that the Europeans are spending more on their defense.
The article goes on to state the following:
- “Allies believe they have worked hard to construct a positive narrative that Trump can buy into,” a senior official from a NATO member state told me.
- The official summarized that narrative as “increased defense spending by European allies of $130b since 2016 … plus decrease in U.S. share of NATO budget plus increased high readiness forces.”
- Trump, with the 2020 election coming up, “will want to take credit for that,” the official said. But “allies still very much fear the unpredictability of the president.”
