"The Secretary General and I had a productive discussion about what more NATO could do in the fight against terrorism. I complained about that a long time ago and they made a change. And now they do fight terrorism. I said it was obsolete. It's no longer obsolete."
At a joint press conference with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, Trump said that he will continue to work closely with NATO allies, particularly when it comes to fighting terrorism.
During the 2016 campaign and after his election, Trump frequently criticized NATO as "obsolete" and knocked allies for not paying their "fair share." At Wednesday's press conference, Trump reiterated his call that NATO allies "meet their financial obligations and pay what they owe."
