During that call, the president-elect promised America’s “strong support” for NATO and the security of Europe. Trump also pointed out the “importance of increased defense spending among European allies” during the conversation.

All members of the alliance pledged to allocate two percent of their GDP towards defense spending during the 2014 NATO summit in Wales, Stoltenberg reminded the membership Monday.
