Top Trump staff caught off-guard by NATO speech: report

President Trump’s national security team was blindsided by his speech last month to NATO leaders that did not reaffirm a key NATO provision, Politico reported.

Trump reportedly disappointed and surprised his own top staff when he did not reaffirm the Article 5 provision during his speech — a measure that was supported by national security adviser H.R. McMaster, Defense Secretary James Mattis and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

The officials reportedly thought that language was included in the speech ahead of its delivery, only realizing a change had been made when Trump spoke.
