Tough Talk! President Donald Trump came out brawling in his first public comments here at the outset of NATO's annual summit, accusing a close US ally of being "a captive of Russia," calling members of the alliance "delinquent" in their defense spending and insisting they increase it "immediately." Trump's provocative comments on Wednesday morning -- particularly those aimed at Germany -- set the tone for the first day of NATO's annual summit, amplifying the sense of unease among the United States' closest European allies and giving Trump a chance to once again shine a spotlight on uneven burden-sharing among the alliance's members.
