``His main claim, repeated over and over, was that the NATO members agreed to spend more money on defense, "like they never have before," "to levels they've never thought of before." This boost in spending, he added, "started last year." Before he became president, "the numbers"--their defense budgets--"were going down," but "now the numbers were going up like a rocket ship." And at this summit, he added, they didn't just say they'd vaguely try to devote 2 percent of their GDP to defense; they "committed" to doing so--"that's very different"--and they were doing this at a "faster clip" than before. All of these remarks are false.''
