Beyond the Article 5 backlash: What really happened with Trump and NATO

While delivering a speech at the unveiling of the Article 5 and Berlin Wall memorial at the new NATO HQ, Trump was reported to be insulting allies with blunt messages on their lack of defence spending, as well as undermining the very foundation of the alliance by failing to explicitly mention the US commitment to Article 5.

The icing on the cake was when Trump brutally shoved his way to the front of the family photo.

However, a fair assessment can only be made by looking at both political and military developments in conjunction to the meeting.
