Trump: Macron calling NATO 'brain dead' was nasty

Dec 03, 2019 19:09 IST

US President Donald Trump on Tuesday said that French President Macron’s recent comments that NATO is experiencing “brain death” was very insulting to the alliance’s other 28 members. Speaking alongside NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, Trump took aim at Macron, calling his comments “very nasty.” Interestingly, Trump has repeatedly criticised fellow NATO members several times, claiming that few nations are on track to meet the alliance goal of spending at least 2% of GDP on defence by 2024 and France needs NATO the most.
