Trump has waffled between public support for NATO and questioning its worth during his time in the Oval Office, which has raised concerns about the alliance's viability as global instability is on the rise.

Ottawa failed to spend almost $8B in promised defence cash over recent years .
Documents show billions of planned spending not spent over the last two complete fiscal years. According to documents obtained from the Department of National Defence, the federal government underspent roughly $7.79 billion worth of promised money mostly for capital projects, which includes everything from spending on facilities to equipment and military procurement, in fiscal 2017-18 and 2018-19.
