Donald Trump Finally Supports NATO Defense Agreement With US Allies

Trump commits US to NATO's Article Five on mutual defence

Trump commits to NATO mutual defense after hesitating

President Donald Trump said at a joint White House press briefing with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis that some of the things that former FBI Director James Comey told the Senate Intelligence Committee yesterday "just weren't true" and that he "would be glad to tell" Independent Counsel Robert Mueller the same things he was telling the reporter who was questioning him.

According to the statement sent to ACTMedia, the American-Romanian Business Council (AMRO) applauds President Donald J. Trump for meeting with Romanian President Klaus Iohannis on Friday. "Perhaps you should pay some or all of that money back", Trump said repeating an excerpt of his own speech. And he said multiple times that he choose to take detailed notes about his interactions with Trump because he anxious the White House and President would lie about them if he didn't.

Trump also implored all nations across the world to desist from supporting terrorism financially, with their military or even morally.

President Donald Trump has confirmed the US' commitment to Article 5 of the NATO treaty, the collective defence pact that treats an attack on one ally as an attack on all members of the alliance. The brief news conference - where each President took four questions from the press - comes the day after Comey's bombshell Capitol Hill testimony in which the fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director accused the White House of "lies". Asked if he would speak to the issue under oath, Trump said: "100 percent".

Comey delivered scathing testimony a day earlier in a highly anticipated Senate hearing, saying Trump sought to derail a probe into onetime national security advisor Michael Flynn - at best, a political miscalculation, and at worst a criminal obstruction of justice.

Comey said he did so after Trump suggested in a tweet that their conversations may have been recorded. "I know I was sacked because of something about the way I was conducting the Russian Federation investigation was in some way putting pressure on him, in some way irritating him, and he chose to fire me because of that".

"I didn't say that", Trump said.


Top administration officials, including Vice President Pence, have since said the United States is committed to Article 5.

President Iohannis also had talks with the USA congressmen about having Romania included in the VisaWaiver program.

Sen. Susan Collins, a moderate Republican, said Congress needs to obtain any tapes the president might have of his dealings with the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director. I didn't say that and I didn't say the other.

"I didn't say that, I will tell you I didn't say that, and there would be nothing wrong if I did say that."
We are doing really well.

Mr Kasowitz plans to file a complaint early next week about Mr Comey's disclosure of conversations with the president, a person close to the legal team said on Friday. "Comey described an episode during the inquiry into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server when then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch directed him 'not to call it an investigation but to call it a matter, which confused me and concerned me.' Comey said that language 'tracked" how the Clinton campaign was talking about the FBI's work.

Already, just past 6 AM this morning, the president claimed Comey committed perjury by lying, and called him a "leaker", which is inaccurate.
