Trump Meets EU, NATO Leaders In Brussels

Trump Meets EU NATO Leaders In Brussels 1On Thursday in Brussels, President Trump met for the first time with leaders of the European Union and NATO, the 27-member alliance he once dismissed as “obsolete.” Trump arrived in Brussels on Wednesday, after a stop in Italy. Following a meeting at the European Union headquarters with European Council President Donald Tusk and European Commission head Jean-Claude Juncker on Thursday morning, Trump was expected to have lunch with new French President Emmanuel Macron then meet with fellow NATO leaders. Trump says he wants to get a NATO commitment to join the fight against the Islamic State, though some members won’t commit military support. Late Thursday, Trump departs for Sicily and a G-7 summit, the final leg of his overseas trip.
