President Trump has made no secret about his feelings towards the NATO alliance, and came in all guns blazing to this week’s NATO summit in Brussels, admonishing allies for not footing more of the financial burden for defense as well as threatening that the U.S. might “go it alone.” CSIS Europe program deputy director Jeff Rathke joins the show this week to discuss what kind of effect this week has had on the NATO alliance and whether allies are measuring up in their commitment to NATO. Hosted by Colm Quinn. Audio produced by Yumi Araki.
