Donald Trump increased his rhetoric against NATO allies at a summit in Brussels yesterday. The U.S. President criticized NATO allies for not spending enough on defense.

Trump made a brief speech in which he attacked certain member states for the "massive amounts of money" they owe to the U.S. and NATO. In 2016, Trump threatened to pull the U.S. out of NATO if other countries did not pull their weight. 

"These grave security concerns are the same reason that I have been very, very direct ... in saying that NATO members must finally contribute their fair share," said President Trump.
