Donald Trump and Theresa May discussed their continued support for NATO at talks in Washington Friday, with the British prime minister saying her counterpart was “100 percent behind” the military alliance.
“On defense and security cooperation, we’re united in our recognition of NATO as the bulwark of our collective defense, and today we’ve reaffirmed our unshakable commitment to this alliance,” May said.
“Mr. President, I think you said, you confirmed that you’re 100 percent behind NATO,” she added, turning to face Trump.
Trump has repeatedly called into question America’s commitment to NATO, suggesting that other nations in the alliance have not sufficiently carried their own weight, leaving much of the work to the U.S. He has also called NATO “obsolete.”
