As Americans were just waking up for breakfast, they discovered that President Trump was ruining breakfast for NATO leaders.
Trump has been complaining since taking office that some NATO members don't spend enough on defense, leaving the U.S. shouldering too much of the burden, and it's an issue that predates his tenure.
Many NATO members are "delinquent," Trump told the breakfast session, and "owe us a tremendous amount of money from many years back."
Chuck Schumer called Trump's comments an "embarrassment" and "another profoundly disturbing signal that the president is more loyal to President Putin than to our NATO allies."
There is a vital debate, to be sure, about the future of NATO, but many commentators are simply offended by Trump's undiplomatic approach in challenging our allies.
