The House on Wednesday unanimously approved a resolution supporting NATO — a largely symbolic action that came hours after President Donald Trump criticized the alliance.

The House passed the nonbinding measure by voice vote, the Washington Examiner reported; the Senate passed a similar resolution Tuesday by a vote of 97-2. 

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., defended NATO Wednesday as “indispensable,” but also said he backed Trump’s call for nations in the alliance to pay the 2 percent of GDP they owe. Trump later said NATO countries should spend up to 4 percent of GDP, the Examiner reported.

“The president is right to point out that our NATO allies need to adhere to their commitment,” Ryan said, the Examiner reported.
