NATO leaders on Wednesday played down their differences and insisted that they remain united over security issues and determined to defend each other.
That, despite a series of spats between the presidents of some of the alliance’s biggest member countries.
French President Emmanuel Macron had lamented the “brain death” of NATO — due in part to what he called a lack of U.S. leadership.
President Donald Trump branded his remarks as “very disrespectful.”
Leading to a tense, televised back and forth.
