President Donald Trump has regularly been critical of the NATO elated, because the European allies are not contributing sufficiently. But according to Pompeo does not affect the solidarity of the USA with the alliance. “I can think of no more appropriate destination for my first international trip proposals.”

He repeated the U.s. criticism of the low defence spending. Pompeo hopes that the allies at the upcoming NATO summit in July on the bridge will come. “The European partners have more responsibility for their own safety.”
