Trump Meets EU, NATO Leaders In Brussels

On 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.
