President Trump said he and other world leaders have made tremendous progress in the past two-days at the NATO summit.

During a press conference in Brussels Thursday, the president said NATO countries have stepped up their commitment, and will begin holding up their end of the bargain in regards to defense spending.

NATO countries have reportedly agreed to boost their spending to two-percent, with the goal of increasing to four-percent in the coming years.

The president had criticized NATO, however, he now says it is stronger than ever before.

President Trump is set to discuss trade in the U.K. with Prime Minister Theresa May before attending a gala dinner with the First Lady later Thursday.
