The president’s first meeting with leaders from all 28 NATO member nations will provide him the opportunity to press them for greater financial contributions toward keeping Russia in check.
His scheduled speech at the summit will also give him the breathing room to proclaim America’s undying commitment to NATO, even though Trump called the alliance ‘obsolete’ while he was campaigning.
Along the way the president will meet Belgium’s King Philippe and Queen Mathilde and Prime Minister Charles Michel. He will also have a working lunch with newly elected French president Emmanuel Macron.
