Trump: Stoltenberg is my biggest fan

U.S. President Donald Trump described NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg as his biggest fan.

In the interview with Fox News Trump has denounced critics of his NATO policy, saying while the alliance "was going down" over the last 15 years, it is "like a rocket ship up" now. 

The U.S. president said that Stoltenberg is his biggest fan. "He goes around, he made a speech the other day, said, without Donald Trump, maybe there would be no NATO," Trump insisted, noting that NATO got over $100 billion from other countries now “starting to pay”.

He lamented once again that the US had gotten to a point where the country was “close to paying 100% of NATO” and accused other allies of having avoided sharing the burden.
