Kudos to the republican party - you have accomplished your leader's goals - Putin is proud of you! https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2019/12/04/nato-meetings-trump-macron-merkel-london/2605964001/
LONDON – NATO leaders gathered here Wednesday for talks amid public infighting between some of the military alliance's biggest member countries, including sharp exchanges between President Donald Trump and France's leader Emmanuel Macron.
Trump will hold one-to-one talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel later.
But NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg rejected criticism from Macron that the military alliance is suffering from "brain death." He also dismissed complaints from Trump that member states are not boosting their NATO military budgets quickly enough and insisted that the organization is adapting to modern challenges.
"NATO is agile, NATO is active, NATO is adapting," Stoltenberg said before chairing a meeting of the alliance's members at a luxury hotel and golf resort outside London.
"As long as we are able to deliver substance… then NATO proves once again that we are able to respond to a shifting security landscape, and that's the best way to also provide unity of this alliance," the Norwegian national said.
