U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday that America’s NATO allies will boost their defense spending.
At a press conference in Brussels, Trump said that the allies agreed to substantially raise their commitments, giving an unofficial number of $33 billion -- not including the U.S. -- above last year.
Trump said that NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg will give the exact numbers later on Thursday.
"Everyone has agreed to substantially up their commitment. They're going to up it at levels that they never thought of before," he said.
