Trump: "Yesterday I let them know that I was extremely unhappy at what was happening and they have substantially upped their commitment". "We made a tremendous amount of progress today", he told reporters.
Trudeau said he did agree to uphold Canada's commitment to the 2014 Wales NATO summit pledge on defence investment, but took pains to point out the declaration technically states NATO allies would merely "aim to move towards" the two per cent guideline within a decade. It's very detailed", he said adding, "It confirms the goal of 2 percent by 2024.
U.S. President Donald Trump is claiming a victory, saying he's gotten NATO's members to spend two per cent of their GDP on defence by 2024.
At the same breakfast (and on several other occasions later in the day), Trump blasted German Chancellor Angela Merkel for an energy deal her country has with Russian Federation, saying they are "totally controlled by Russian Federation", and a "captive" of the country.

He complained the United States "pays tens of Billions of Dollars too much to subsidise Europe" and demanded that member nations reach their goal to spend 2 per cent of GDP on defence, which "must ultimately go to 4%!"
The US president said he would be discussing Syria, the Middle East, Ukraine and nuclear proliferation.
Earlier Thursday, he repeated his complaint that the United States carries a trade deficit with the European Union even as those countries rely on US aid to pay for their defense.
"It all came together at the end", Mr Trump said. "I made clear that we are on this path", she said, a day after having to challenge Trump's suggestion German imports of Russian gas meant that her country was "totally controlled by Russia".
"The US were not treated fairly, but now we are".
At the end of the first session of a two-day summit, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said the aim first was to reach 2 percent, but moments later Trumptweeted that allies were undercutting the U.S. on trade and needed to immediately boost spending.
