Trump has repeatedly taken credit for increased NATO spending commitments after frequently accusing European allies of not paying their fair share relative to the U.S., but the organization’s European states have been steadily increasing their defense commitments since 2014, when Russia annexed the territory of Crimea, according to Foreign Policy.
