One witness from Germany said the president had upped “a sense of urgency.”
Witnesses at a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing on Wednesday said that President Trump’s insistence that NATO members meet their defense obligations had contributed to a recent uptick in defense spending.
Dr. Constanze Stelzenmüller said that her home country of Germany upped its defense spending mainly in response to Russian aggression, but the Trump administration’s insistence had “contributed to reinforcing a sense of urgency.”
Former Ambassador Nicholas Burns offered more concrete praise for the president.
“President Trump’s been right to raise this issue as all of our presidents have, and I think he has had an impact on the internal debate,” Burns said. “He’s right to raise [the issue].”
