President Trump is scheduled to hold a press conference with visiting President of Romania, Klaus Iohannis, on Friday, June 9, beginning at 12:45 p.m. MT. KUNC will carry special coverage of the conference beginning at that time and will carry it through completion.
"One of the things I was referring to during that speech was the fact that, yes, they haven't paid what we should be paying now, but for many years they haven't been paying", Trump said about his speech in Brussels.
US allies were disturbed last month when Trump did not personally affirm his commitment to Article 5 during a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels.
"And certainly we are there to protect", Trump added, saying this is why the USA is "paying the kind of money necessary to have that force".
Trump's remarks came in response to a question about Article 5 in the context of a Russian Federation threat in the region around Romania.
In his testimony, Comey confirmed they hacked the 2016 presidential election and that Trump was never under investigation.

Putin: Syria chemical attack was provocation against Assad

How mutual aid works: Article 5 says an attack on one is an attack on all.
Donald Trump said he would talk about whether recordings of his White House conversations exist "maybe sometime in the near future".
At the same time, Trump reiterated the need for all 28 members to meet their obligation to spend at least two percent of their budget on their own self-defense.
The final version of Trump's May 23 speech featured a line describing Washington's commitment to Article 5 as "unwavering", Politico reported on Tuesday, a line Trump did not ultimately deliver.
He also pointed out that Romania, which stands of NATO's Eastern flank, heavily relies on the United States for defense. He later reversed his opinion in office, wrongly claiming the alliance was now willing to fight terrorism because of Trump's demands it do so (NATO has actually been officially committed to battling terrorism since the 1980s, and has deployed troops to Afghanistan since the US-led war there began in 2001). However, Trump has long criticized the coalition and has repeatedly called on other members to live up to their financial contributions to the US -dominated security infrastructure in Europe. Trump raised doubts about the commitment during his campaign past year when he said he would come to the defense only of allies that have fulfilled financial obligations. He said he is not finished trying to solve the problem of terrorism but that we will solve the problem.
