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.

The NATO summit made headlines after a clip surfaced of a group of other Western leaders, including Canadian Prime Minister Justin TrudeauJustin Pierre James TrudeauBiden administration stokes frustration over Canada The Hill's 12:30 Report - Presented by Goldman Sachs - Schumer moves ahead with likely-to-fail infrastructure vote US extends travel restrictions with Canada, Mexico MORE, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and French President Emmanuel MacronEmmanuel Jean-Michel MacronFrench parliament approves COVID-19 passes for restaurants, domestic travel WhatsApp chief: US allies' national security officials targeted with NSO malware US athletes chant 'Dr. Biden' as first lady cheers swimmers MORE appearing to gossip about Trump.
