NATO spending increased ‘like never before’

Donald Trump has said NATO spending has been increased “like never before” following an emergency meeting.

He said: “The commitment was at 2% but ultimately that will be going up.

“The US commitment to NATO remains very strong but the spirit everyone has and the additional money they will be putting up has been really amazing.

“I hope that we’re going to be able to get along with Russia, I think we probably will be able to.

“Nevertheless they stepped it up even further.

“We are doing numbers that we’ve never done before.”

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said it was an “intense summit” as she added that “there was a clear commitment to NATO by all”.
