Trump – NATO

Donald Trump says America is committed to the defence of its allies under Article 5 of the NATO treaty.

The U-S president made the assertion yesterday, casting aside worries that his failure to mention it last month signalled a weakening of the alliance.

European countries and others expressed concern when Trump didn’t mention Article 5 during a speech at NATO headquarters in Brussels.

The clause has only been invoked once, after the September 11th terror attacks.
