The Heat: The future of NATO

The Heat

NATO Summit

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization summit can be described in one word: intense.

U.S. President Donald Trump began it slamming Germany for being dependent on Russian energy and demanding an even higher commitment on military spending from NATO allies.

Despite the tension and rumors that Trump might even pull the United States out of NATO, Trump said Thursday he remains committed to the alliance.
