Donald Trump finally says US will defend European Nato allies as Russia stance hardens ahead of Putin meetingDonald Trump has made his most explicit commitment yet that America will come to the defence of its Nato allies – a day before a much-anticipated meeting with Vladimir Putin. The US President had been criticised during his first visit to Europe when he failed to refer to Nato’s Article 5, that part of its charter that commits members to the idea of mutual defence. “To those who would criticise our tough stance, I would point out that the United States has demonstrated – not merely with its words but with its actions – that we stand firmly behind Article 5, the mutual defence commitment,” Mr Trump said.
