"President Donald Trump reversed course on his view of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization on Wednesday, saying it is "no longer obsolete," after months of bashing the alliance as no longer relevant during his presidential campaign.
"I said it was obsolete. It's no longer obsolete," he said at a press conference with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at the White House.
"The secretary general and I had a productive discussion about what more NATO can do in the fight against terrorism," Trump said. "I complained about that a long time ago, and they made a change, and now they do fight terrorism."

Trump to NATO head: Will U.S. be paid back for defense spending?
ABC=All Bull Crap.
If it’s true I want to see confirmation from a reliable source, not a lying leftist outlet.
Trump seems to have the impression NATO fights terrorism.
I don’t know what he is talking about.
More WH Globalist influence?
Let’s see: no wall, no tax cuts, carbon credits suddenly look good, NAFTA looks OK, Michelle’s school lunches and victory garden stay, on and on
See, ABC *fake news* didn't emphasize that NATO changed before TRUMP changed.
Had Trump NOT altered his rhetoric after NATO listened to his complaints, ABC *fake news* would run the headline "Trump Stubbornly Fights Even After Concessions"
Joint press conference. Look it up if you dont believe abc.
who is NATO’s enemy? And whoever that enemy is, what military value do such stalwarts as Montenegro and Albania provide?
Trump was right. Now Trump is WAY wrong. An alliance that says that “If one of us is attacked then we are all attacked” to fight terrorism—basically organized crime—is absurd. He can’t really believe this.
Within a year, Trump will come to regret that statement. He is allowing himself to be manipulated by the EU globalists.
I do not like this one bit. Also the bank deal. IMF.
I got screwed over today by him when he came out and said dollar too strong...and china is not manipulating currency..market didnt like it.
I NEVER believe ABC without reliable confirmation. You shouldn’t either. Was there no reliable outlet like Breitbart or Drudge that published an article about this? Why do we too often have to report this stuff on FR using lying leftist outlets like the All-Bull-Crap network?
You dont have to believe it but then you might want to check if it is true.
Nato needs to be repurposed to the greatest threat to western man since Hitler.
Hitler’s partners, the world of islam.
Agreed. I do not like where Trump is heading.
The statement on NATO comes from a nationally broadcast/cablecast news conference.
YouTube has the statement available without any news station between you and the president.
They haven’t changed, they only promised to change. Talk is cheap.
He did not like NATO not paying their fair share and not doing enough on terrorism. He thinks they are now stepping up to the plate on those issues and that is why the turn around. Not hard to understand.
