WEB Notes: Despite trump’s previous remarks saying NATO is obsolete the US will carry on funding them and supporting them, imagine that. The US would like to see NATO used to “fight terrorism”. So once again we see, business as usual.

The announcement comes as Trump has roiled the alliance with renewed complaints about how much European allies are paying for their defense. But administration officials say the U.S. has a “strong commitment” to the alliance.

From lecterns across Washington Tuesday, the Trump administration professed support for NATO. “The United States remains 100% committed to NATO. President Trump said this in his very first address to a joint session of Congress. He said our commitment to NATO is unwavering and it remains so,” State Department spokesman Mark Toner said.

At the Pentagon, secretary of Defense James Mattis met with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg. “We have a very strong trans-Atlantic bond. It’s getting stronger,” Mattis said. “It’s built on a legacy of common commitments and common defense, and we never forget that in this building.”
