Trump Administration Drops Financial Support Of NATO
The Trump administration has moved to substantially cut its contribution to NATO's collective budget.
The symbolic move comes as many continue to question President Donald Trump's commitment to the transatlantic alliance.
According to CNN, Trump is preparing to attend a summit to mark its 70th anniversary in London next week.
Previously, the US provided some 22% of NATO's direct funding.
That covers NATO headquarters maintenance, joint security investments, and some combined military operations.
