Fact check: Trump’s half-truths and false statements at Nato summit | World news | The Guardian

Donald Trump speaks during a press conference on the second day of the Nato summit in Brussels, Belgium, on Thursday.

Here is a list of fact checks on some of the US president’s claims on Thursday:

REALITY CHECK : NOTHING HAPPENED: LIAR”S POKER

Trump: ‘Yesterday I let them know that I was extremely unhappy at what was happening and they have substantially upped their commitment’

Nothing has changed since Trump arrived in Brussels.

Trump: ‘We have a very, very strong Nato, much stronger than it was two days ago’

There is no empirical measure of this claim for increased strength.
