US President Donald Trump claimed that because of his efforts NATO had raised “$40 billion” over the past year, speaking alongside NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg ahead of the NATO Summit opening in Brussels on Wednesday.

“He may be the only one [to like me] but that’s OK with me,” said Trump of the NATO boss.

Trump once again voiced his concerns over other NATO members supposedly not spending enough on defence, saying, “the United States is paying far too much.”

Stoltenberg for his part emphasised defence expenditure as one of the main topics of the summit saying, “NATO allies have to invest more.”

Chaired by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, the summit is set to discuss the most urgent issues for its members concerning international security and military affairs. Transatlantic trade agreements as well as the US withdrawal from both the global climate pact and Iran nuclear deal are on the summit’s agenda.
