U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday that NATO members’ cost-sharing burden was much improved, but he would like to see other countries spend more on defense.


At a White House meeting with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, Trump also said he would like to see members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization pay more than 2 percent of gross domestic product for defense. The U.S. president told NATO leaders last year to increase defense spending to 4 percent of GDP.
