Douglas Lute says NATO allies will undoubtedly recommit to increasing defense spending because of President Trump’s actions.
Douglas Lute, the former United States representative to NATO, said on Sunday that he thinks President Trump is right in asking our NATO allies to do more during an interview on ABC’s “This Week.”
ABC’s Martha Raddatz and Lute were discussing Trump’s vocal criticism of NATO and what impact that might have. While Lute was critical of Trump’s tone, he did concede to Raddatz that Trump is correct in asking NATO allies to increase their defense spending.
“Here the president is right. They’ll undoubtedly recommit to the commitments they made back in the Obama administration to increase defense spending,”Lute told Raddatz. “This is where the president is correct, we should press our NATO allies to do more.”
